Q: I have not had much luck employing Nannies. I have actually had a few Nannies quit. Is it the Nannies or is it me?

Like any successful relationship, a successful Nanny and employer relationship requires mutual respect, appreciation and give and take.

Think about the following areas of your past Nanny relationships and decide if you have been an employer that your Nanny would want to work for.

Appreciation: We all need to hear that we are doing a good job. Thanking your Nanny on a regular basis will help her know that you appreciate the care that she is providing to your family.

Compensation: One of the main reasons that Nannies look for another job is money. Do not forget to pay your Nanny the expected and agreed upon amount, plus any overtime that is due. Be sure to pay your nanny on the day she is expecting her check and if remembering to pay her is a problem, ask if you can pay her via direct deposit.

Respect: Listen to your Nanny’s ideas and show her you respect her experience and her relationship with your children. Establish and adhere to a work agreement, come home on time, pay her promptly, establish a review and bonus policy, offer her fair benefits and treat her as a professional. Provide her with the type of work environment that you would like to work in. You will develop a very intimate work relationship with your Nanny and like with any other relationship, your Nanny will become hurt if she feels she is taken advantage of.

The best Nanny are the ones who value their jobs and get along well with all the members of their employer’s family. Most Nannies chose this professional because they love working with children and their families. Nannies and parents strive to ensure that children receive high quality care. This can only be accomplished when both parents and Nanny consistently work together.
