Checking up on your nanny

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 18-05-2007

If you did all the background and reference
checks on yournanny beforehand, chances are you have a nanny you can be sure of.  However, if you didn’t do full duediligence or if your nanny had no prior
experience or references, and you haveconcerns, here are some warning signs of a “bad nanny.”

 

  1. Your normally happy baby becomes agitated and fearful when the nanny
    arrives.   Sometimes, this is just evidence that real bonding
    has not occurred or that the baby just really wants to spend more time with you or your
    spouse. 
  2. Your baby has had too
    many accidents.  Even if your nanny is not abusing your child, signs
    of too many accidents means your nanny is not staying on top of the situation to provide
    falls and injury, which is one or her most important jobs.
  3. You
    differ with your nanny on ways to take care of the baby and your nanny doesn’t follow through
    on your requests.  Or worse, she is critical of  your parenting style.
  4. You find that the baby is not
    clean or properly dressed. This is a sign that the nanny is not up to the task of properly
    taking care of your child.
  5. Your nanny is often late or has
    unpredictable absences.  A nanny you can’t depend on is in many ways
    worse than no nanny at all.
  6. You discover her in a lie or she
    tells stories that don’t make sense.  In this case, you must immediately
    fire your nanny. You can not entrust your child to any person who lies, steals, or betrays
    your trust.

 

Most nanny
decisions can be made without hiring a detectiveor installing hidden cameras.
