If your nanny knows your incentive for hiring her, it will truly assist her in seeing to your individual mothering needs. If you are honest with yourself, and your nanny that you dislike not being present for your baby’s developmental steps because you are at your occupation, and would care to be “in the hoop” of your baby’s daily activities as much as possible, your ‘nanny’ can entirely meet your needs.
She can phone you when your baby sits up or starts talking or takes his or her initial footsteps or looses a ‘tooth’ if you like that. She can assist your baby in re-constructing these landmarks by capturing photos for you of the events you want to see when you are ‘home’.
There are plenty of ways for the two of you to talk and meet both your needs if you are honest and clear concerning your emotions and your needs.
Hire A Nanny – Reasons Why Are Important
Are you hiring a nanny to lend a hand so you and/or your spouse can conduct his or your business at home, without interruption from the kids? If you or your spouse or you and your spouse run a business from ‘home’, and you require a ‘nanny’ to care for your child so you can get your work completed, you will want to hire a nanny who is experienced and ‘comfortable’ enough to appreciate the needs of parents who work from home and one who you will feel comfortable having around.
Somebody who was raised in a big household and is accustomed to not having a great deal of space to herself may be a model nanny for this job. Somebody who is self-doubting and anxious as to what type of job she is performing may feel to much pressure by the parent being there to do her job comfortably and properly. A person having a tough ego may be ideal in this case because she is confident and can do her job and not feel threatened by the parent’s presence in the home.
What would you like your nanny to do while in your home?
This question may sound very silly to you but keep in mind that numerous families want a nanny that will do housework on top of looking after their ‘child'(ren).
Others want the nanny staying away from anything not involving the “child’s care”. While there are families who don’t want the nanny to use their telephone, others want the nanny to answer the telephone and take messages along with answering the front door. And then there are some employers who expect the nanny to stop by the cleaners, drive the child or children to restaurants for their meals, and do grocery shopping.
Consider which days of the week you will need the nanny’s services.
Prior to you working up a nanny agenda, think about your own agenda. On the days the nanny is caring for your child what would you be doing? Are you going to be at your place of business or employment forty-five minutes away? Perhaps you’re in real estate and will be displaying homes at various locations while your nanny looks after your children. Maybe your business is at home, and you simply want a nanny who will keep your children occupied so you can get your work finished in your ‘home’ office? Or maybe you would like to go to the gym and do shopping while your nanny looks after your child?
The answers to these questions can assist you in establishing how ‘many’ days a week you require a nanny’s assistance. If your occupation requires you to work Monday through Friday or even more, you may want to hire a nanny five days a week, one who will have no problems getting to your home with ample time for you to get to your place of employment, and who can look after your child until you get home in the evening.
Take the time to consider what those hours will truly be. If your work hours are nine to five, look for a nanny who will come in at 8:00 in the morning and leave at 6:00 in the evening. Now, bear in mind that this is a 10-hour day and it’s not at their house. It’s where they work, so while you may see the job as cushy with recliners, sofas, television, the fridge and pantry well stocked this is very much a job for the nanny and it’s a very long day. By day five, she’ll be looking forward to the weekend.
