MANILA - An official of the Department of Social Welfare and Development said kids should be endorsed to trusted helpers and not just nannies. This is following a report of a baby being abused by a nanny in Mandaluyong.

"Dapat katiwala na talaga ng pamilya," Alice Bonoan, director of DSWD-NCR, said.

She said families should check on the family and psychological background of the nanny.

She also said parents should make sure that they give the proper benefits to nannies since they are the ones left behind to take care of the kids.

"Baka duon nila ituon sa mga alaga nila ang kanilang galit, na hindi nila natatamo ang kanilang tamang benefits," she said.
