All of my faithful readers over the years have no maid so I am not sure how you can help. But collective wisdom will always work so please give me your thoughts.
Our Indo maid has been great so far. This is her second month. And last week, she asked us if she could call home. She missed her 10 year old daughter and would like to make a safe arrival call.
Our agency said we should not let the maid call home. There are many reasons, one of them being that it may caused them to miss home so much that they run away. Or that her family may persuade her to run away; or hook her up with a local contact so she can run away with him.
My sister's friend also said it is not a good idea because there were cases where the maid called home and her family told her that they have received the 7 month advance money that employer paid and that she should just ditch them now that the money was in.
But Mrs World-Peace trusted her and would like to allow it.
I don't know if we should. No experience at all. I also trust the maid.. but then, who knows if she's pretending to be a good person all along. There are may type of people in this world.
What should I do?
