Rapper Cardi B is warning mothers to be cautious about who they allow to watch their children.
On May 14, the “Please Me” artist tweeted a note to her fellow mommy followers telling them that she knows how hard it is to find a good babysitter.
Dear Moms, I know it’s hard to find good babysitters you can trust (I still don’t have one 😩) and I know sometimes the money isn’t there but PLEASE STOP leaving ya kids with your boyfriends! The devil is manipulating their minds especially when they are needy of attention.

Cardi B and her husband Offset share 10-month-old daughter, Kulture.
The fairly new mother’s tweet gained over 13,000 retweets and 80,000 likes.
One fan replied:
Unfortunately this applies to certain family members also. If they are toxic for me they would be toxic for any kids I might have.

Based on some of the country’s most recent crime stories, the rapper may have a point.
As Dearly previously reported, on May 11, Derion Venice, the stepfather of missing 4-year-old Maleah Davis, was arrested and charged in her disappearance.
The arrest came after trained dogs reacted to the scent of human remains in his car.
Further, detectives report that blood evidence linked to Davis was found throughout his Houston residence. Meleah still has not been found.
In another case, California police charged Emiel Hunt in the death of a 9-year-old girl named Trinity Jones. Hunt was the boyfriend of Trinity’s mother, Taquesta Graham.
She was also detained as the second person of interest in the homicide, reports Dearly.
Hunt has a previous child abuse conviction and spent a decade in prison for abuse and torture, according to San Diego County records.
A third example is when Quise McCall of Washington, D.C. returned to her home on February 14.
As Dearly reported, she found her 1-year-old son Torrance Adams choking and not breathing. Doctors discovered that the back of his skull was fractured. The fracture had led to bleeding on Torrance’s brain and ultimately his death.
Her boyfriend Michael Buchanan, 23, was subsequently arrested on one count of intentional child abuse causing serious bodily injury.
Following the little boy’s death, police charged him with murder.
