I have a child with adhd, odd, and conduct disorder. They are subject to violent out bursts, and sneakily hurting siblings when no one is watching or purposely breaking things in retaliation to punishment, But, they are also a victim of siblings getting them into trouble provoking them. Im at that point where I cant get answers out of any one so im seriously considering putting baby monitors around th house, mostly the hallway and their room they share with a sibling, just so I can watch when I hear things start to see what’s really going on. Today, I set up my tablet in th doorway so I could keep an eye on them while they cleaned their rooms, while I went shopping whole master 16 “baby sat”. Not a single fight or disagreement. I know this won’t be the end result, but I was able to defuse things before they started, and I wasnt even at home. Any ok ne else have to resort to this.

  • I haven’t had to yet but I definitely would.

  • I don’t see anything wrong with it if its your kids and you’re trying to help the situation

  • I have not, but I’ve considered it. I think it sounds like a reasonable solution to the problems you’re describing.

  • If you can’t get straight answers then a camera may be the only option.

  • I don’t see a problem with this. Well done for thinking outside the box to support all your kids!

  • Sounds like a good idea. Anything to help you cope as a parent, it’s such a challenge bringing up kids as it is let alone with these behaviours

  • I think if it gives you piece of mind and you feel it will work and help the situation. I say go for it

  • I think if if gives you peace of mind it’s a good idea will teach the children that cameras are everywhere these days. On the streets in shopping centres and busses and trains. Will help them understand that good behaviour is best at all times. Honesty and tell them it helps you sort out the fights easily.

  • I think if if gives you peace of mind it’s a good idea

  • I was just reading your question another time. You write you sat up your tablet in the doorway so you could keep an eye on them while they cleaned their rooms, while you went shopping. The fact you can go shopping tells that you can trust them to a certain level, which is great. What age are your kids ? I know for one that my girl would remove or obstruct or destroy camera’s would she discover them

  • I can relate to your question. I have a foster daughter with an attachment disorder, very severe kleptomania and conduct disorder. I’ve thought many times that camera’s would be good, actually I would a camera on her whole day lol ! So far we haven’t done that, but choose to lock all bedroom doors except her own. However we still had plenty of incidents with danger aspects and child protection involved
