Why you shouldn’t turn your older children into nannies for their younger siblings
2 Be safe rather than sorry
There are many people who may object all because of an egoistic attitude that wants so much to believe and make the world believe that their children are fully capable of taking care of each other. Statements like. “My siblings and I did everything alone, and nothing bad happened,” But!! Did you ever hear of the saying??? Better safe than sorry”!
A seven year old child just does not have the ability to protect or prevent a child in acting dangerously which are why older children shouldn’t be nannies. In fact they too could well encourage a dangerous situation without knowing it and it has nothing to do with malice and everything to do with the elder one being a child after all.
