In recent years, several reports about abusive or dishonest nannies have become so common that parents learned to be extra careful when hiring child care services for their own kids. According to the 2001 report by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, children who are most at risk of physical assaults by babysitters are younger (ages 1–3) than those at risk of sex crimes (ages 3–5).
Among the reported offenses that babysitters commit, sex crimes outnumber physical assaults nearly two to one. Males constitute the majority of sex-offending babysitters reported to the police (77 percent); females make up the majority of physical assaulters (64 percent).
