In this age of dual-income families and latchkey kids, more and more children are effectively being raised by nannies and other hired caregivers. And while the vast majority of them are competent and caring, the sheer size of this growing industry has led to a shocking statistic: approximately 1,000 children die or are seriously injured each year when in the care of people paid to look after them. Starting with a look at the industry in general and moving on to a probing examination of one specific case, EVERY PARENT'S NIGHTMARE asks what we can do to ensure that our children are well-cared for. We'll examine the social and cultural changes that are at the heart of the issue, then see what, if any, training caregivers receive. And in a heartbreaking portrait, we'll see what happened to Maggie Dittman, aged 2, and how her parents are coping with her loss. Accidents will happen, but how can we be sure that children are in good hands when their parents are not around to take care of them?
