MIND THE GAP!
Women, especially single mothers, must rely on caregivers in order to provide for their children. Sure they check references but they mostly go on a "gut feeling" and sense of intuition when deciding who they will trust with their children. That may not be enough. I would imagine a tragedy such as this will increase the number of background checks and a cottage industry will rise up to provide it. I would advise mothers to carefully consider gaps in employment history as much as the actual employment references for they reveal much more in regards to mental illness.
Regarding mothers who do not work? Well, I would imagine the "nanny as status symbol" days are now over. Stay home and spend the time with your children. Your lunch dates, shopping and Yoga classes are not all that important.
