A nanny is one of the best things you could possibly have in life. Someone to look after you when you need a snack or when you aren’t sure where you left your socks. They’re these amazing people who just seem to always be around when you need them, and they never seem to get annoyed with you quite like your parents do.
If you are a parent who is thinking of getting a nanny then you should make sure that you ask them the relevant questions and are good enough to look after your look after your children. Another thing that you could take a look into is getting yourself an au pair, as this way you’ll be employing someone who wants to educate themselves whilst also helping to looking after children. You can find out more about au pairs (and how to apply for them if this is something that you are interested in becoming one) on a site like Cultural Care Au Pair. This is becoming a more popular approach that young people are taking to travel the world, so if this is something that you are interested in doing then you should go for it.
Back to the questions though, as a nanny (or an au paid) you might be thinking that they are just looking after your children so well because they get paid for it? In all fairness you now have a person who is there to help look after you. So now wonder your children like this person. Even with everything that they do, from the child’s perspective do you really think that you’re getting everything you possibly can out of this relationship? We’re guessing not. Unless, of course, you’ve already managed to ask him or her the following questions.
1. Where Do Babies Come From?
Your nanny is definitely the right person to explain this to you. Really. You won’t find anyone else more qualified. Certainly not your parents, friends or that health teacher at school who yelled at you for talking over her when she was trying to talk about some retroductive system … or something. Those people are silly information sources. Your nanny would love to be the one to take over this subject and teach you everything you need to know.
2. Why Does My Goldfish Hate Me?
Seriously, what is that fish even doing that he thinks he’s so good that he can’t help you out? You wanted a fish, right? Not a selfish. Your nanny understands just how much that goldfish has it in for you, and she can talk to you about why he can’t think of anything better to do than just swim around in his bowl and eat those little flakes of food you feed him. He hasn’t earned his keep for months, and yet no one else seems to care in the household. Well, we’ll tell you who does care. It’s your nanny. So definitely ask her why.
3. Who Stole The Cookies From The Cookie Jar?
The age-old question that no one seems to have an answer to. Your nanny may just be the person to crack the case, though. You know how it seems like she’s got eyes in the back of her head? Well, that’s because she does! I know, it’s shocking but you have to be willing to use her talents to your advantage. She probably wouldn’t even mind showing them off. All she wants to be is an amateur gumshoe detective and figure out who stole those cookies from the cookie jar. Was it you?
4. What Is The Point Of Bedtimes?
And why is everyone always talking about them? They don’t really seem to serve a purpose. If you’re not tired, then you’re not tired! No one should be able to tell you that it’s time to go to sleep when you’re simply not interested. This is another question that your nanny will love because she needs more challenges in her life. You’ve likely never done anything wrong in your life, meaning that you definitely need to test her a little more. She’s had it easy, and she’d love to go through a long conversation about why you need your rest to start the day off without feeling like you got run over by a truck.
