In today’s
world, most of the parents are working. As none of you can give time to the
child throughout the day, you need to hire a nanny from an early stage. The
nanny can stay with your baby 24/7 or only during the daytime as long as you
don’t return from work.Managing work
and children can be really stressful. Let the nanny take off some stress. But
you also have to consider a long list of factors before entrusting a
professional with your little one.1. Decide the
timingDo you need the
nanny only during your professional working hours or 24/7? If you have more or
less fixed working hours, then it is always better to hire a nanny for the
limited hours. • It will help
you to spend some private time with the family with no external interference.• The child
won't miss the nanny much when you shift to some other location or go for a
long vacation as a family. Children have
the most sensitive minds. As the newborn will develop a strong sense of bond
with the nanny, you should make the baby understand that the person is
professional to serve for a fixed number of hours.2. Background
checking to hire a nannyYou will be
allowing a person to spend the major time of the day with your child. You have
to accept that the nanny will have much influence on shaping up the character
of your child.• Is the
professional qualified enough to provide educated assistance?• Does the
person have any bad habits that the child can pick up easily?• Does the nanny
have any criminal record? All these will b
a part of the background check without which you cannit even make the list of
potential candidates.3. Trial period
considerationYou should hire
the caregiver from a service provider who offers a trial period. During this
period, you have to monitor the many closely and check a few points like• The behavior
of the nanny with your child• How the child
responds to the professional• Is the child
happy to stay with the person?• Does the nanny
like the job, or doing it for money only?If you get
positive outcomes from each of the above points, you can hire
a nanny
.4. Payment
detailsYou must have a
budget for hiring the professional. If the particular nanny whom you prefer
among all the other candidates is quoting a higher price, take some time to
analyze why. Ask the person to justify the charge. If you think the reasons are
good enough, you can recruit, only if you don’t have a problem stretching the
budget slightly.Clear
communicationBefore hiring,
it is very important to have a clear discussion with the nanny. You should
explain • Job role• Duties
everyday• Things to do
and also the things not to do.If you hire a nanny, you must have a clear state
of communication with the person. It will help to avoid unnecessary arguments
in the future due to miscommunication.
