          July 12, 2005

          How much do you really know about the people you hand your children over to? Whether it’s a nanny, teacher or coach, you’re entrusting them with your children … and there can be devastating consequences.

          “We’re not saying you shouldn’t leave your child with someone,” Dr. Phil clarifies. “But we are saying that you need to be aware of potential problems.” Find out how to protect your children.

          Please be advised: At the beginning of this show, Dr. Phil cautions viewers that there will be graphic footage.
