    I don't really think I would care whether they are male or not. All that matters to me in hiring a babysitter is if I trust them and that they were recommended my friends or family. I would most likely do a background check also so I wouldn't be paranoid about leaving my daughter with someone. I have trust issues. :P

    Don't see anything much wrong with it...
    It depends on the male in question.
    And if such male ever touched my kid in any negative way. I would kill them, no questions asked.

      I wouldn't leave my hypothetical child with a baby sitter at all... I would much prefer to drop him/her at a relative's (or take them with me to wherever I was going).

      Sure, why not as long as they have experience and I feel comfortable enough to leave my with them. But I'll most likely have an au pair anyway.

      No. Not while there are still so many female babysitters around...



      Please, please never just rely on a CRB check to determine whether somebody is trustworthy for leaving your child with. You don't know how futile the checks are.
      What's your basis for saying that?

      Edit: If a potential babysitter didn't come under 'trusted adult already known to me', I'd also interview them, not just rely on the CRB check.

      Yes I would- just as I'd leave my son with a female babysitter.
      However it's all abstract spectulation isn't it.. you don't know who's going to be best for the job until you interview!

      For every female you show, I can probably find 10 other male cases.
      Yes, but that doesn't mean that all men are paedophiles! For me personally, I would only have a babysitter I knew and trusted anyway, so whether they are male or female I would have no worries about leaving my children with them. I had male babysitters when I was little and they were brilliant.

      I actually can't believe that so many people have voted 'no' on the poll!
