How to Have the Best Nanny

Sometimes we need to have a nanny to help us in taking care of our children. Nannies are common in a family where the mother is working to earn a living. However, here are very important steps to be followed to have the best ones:

History

Nothing is better than to know her history and background. It is advisable to get from an agency rather than just someone who has been being recommended by a friend or neighbor. Though it may cost a bit, you can be sure that the nanny you got had passed the criteria a nanny must possessed. If she had past experiences, it would be better if you ask her previous employer about her performance. You can also verify her records from the police department or any other related government office. It is better that she is also a mother or has younger siblings that she took care of.

I think it is always hard to get a good nanny. And trust is always difficult to give especially when your child is still too young to let you know if he has been mistreated in some way. That's why until now, I'm still unable to pull myself away from being a full time mom and go back to restart my career.

Hi tot's mom! Yes, it's really very hard to put trust to someone who will replace you at home. That's why I advise to have secret video camera installed in your house. However, not all can afford it. The second best thing is to get a close relative you really can trust. Hope you could find one the soonest. Thanks for your comment.

You certainly are every child's guardian. Nice tips. Though my parents don't need it now, they read it and liked it. I've made them do a promise that they'll read this blog regularly and keep the posts in mind at all times. Your's is the most unique blog on the blogosphere!

Hi Meg! You are among my inspiration that's why I made posts like that. Just to know that someone realizes what to do with my help makes me feel great. Btw, I do not know that much about that meme thing, but for you I will try my best. Thanks really!

Great tips! I never had a need for a nanny, but our neighbors have one and I will share these with them.

Hi Joeprah! Thank you for appreciating my post. I am happy to know that you are kind enough to share this to them. Anyways, I do not need a nanny too, and I do not prefer to have one. In fact I am planning to make a separate post about it, so I hope you read it also.
