10 Things Nannies wish Parents Knew

Generally, Nannies will stay with families as long as they are happy and feel respected. Here are 10 tips to ensure your Nanny starts and ends her day with a smile.

Texting Nannies

We have seen a recent trend in Families and Nannies texting each other. There is no doubt texting has become a popular way of communicating. I personally use it to keep track of my teenage children, ask my husband when he will be home and check if friends are on their way. I find texting a fast and easy way to communicate. That said there is a time and place for texting.

How to Choose a Nanny Agency

There are hundreds of nanny agencies across Canada with little regulation of the industry. If you have decided to use a nanny agency for your search you should ask some of the following questions before working with them.

Children’s Pictures on Facebook

A friend of mine took a grown up vacation with her husband, no kids. They had their regular nanny watching the kids (3 and 5 years old) for the week. While they were away the nanny posted pictures on Facebook of what the fun the kids were having. The nanny also tagged the kids with the mothers name so that she would see the pictures. So, not only could my friend and all her friends see the pictures but all the nanny’s friends could see the pictures as well.
