Leaving your children with a Nanny? Be sure to know all the in’s and out’s first

Nanny for your children?  Is this for the rich, the privileged, the overworked parents or the family that travels for business?  This may be true in many instances but Nannies are increasingly being used by everyone who needs not only baby sitting but home but also child rearing support.  Nannies4Hire to the rescue.

Do you know what to ask a Nanny before you hire her?  Do you know what you are expecting her to do for you and have that outlined?  Do you have her pay scale, benefits and job description clear as a bell in your head and on a contract?  Why not?

We all too often call a sitter, put an ad on an internet ad page, or ask others in our community who is available to ‘sit’ with our children.  We open the door of our home to them, give them emergency numbers, pat the kids on the head, grab our keys and head out the door for a very extended day or work, travel or fun.  Who is the keeper of your home now?  They have the keys to your castle, your children’s lives are in their hands, and you trust anyone that appears before you to solve your immediate needs.

My radio show guest, Candi Wingate, of Nannies4Hire, spoke with me about her online database for reliable childcare support.  Here you will find tips to think about before hiring a nanny, why this may be a fit for you and why it may not be a fit, what you should be cautious about and what nannies are available in your area.  Nannies can bring huge benefits to a working mother, a cooked dinner when the day ends, grocery shopping done, kids shuttled to events and appointments and even house cleaning can be part of your plan for a special nanny that fits your needs.

As Candi has worked with developing Nannies4Hire, she has also developed Babysitters4Hire and Care4Hire.  The online sites not only have information for the parents or family doing the hiring but also for the people who are providing the services, Nanny Support Groups and other people who help families can be heard and supported with work issues.

If you need a nanny, Nannies4Hire is the FIRST stop you should be making before securing someone to take care of your precious gems, your children.
