I am a nanny for a 1 year old and 3 year old in the New Tampa area. I would love to meet some other nannies in the area! I would love to get together for play dates and to share ideas and advice! If anybody is nearby and may be interested please let me know!
Hello Nannies! I am needing some advice about potty training my charges, two year old twin girls. They are having a vacation from their toddler school in about a month, (so I will have them 11 hours a day) and their mother wants to potty train them that week. She is not stay at home so I will be doing it on my own. As far as I can tell, her intentions are for me to have them 100% potty trained by the end of the week. I'm really worried about this! Most of my experience is with older children, and I have never potty trained before, other than helping my younger siblings.
I would like to know the age in wich moms stop texting you to know how their child is doing.
when I first started working I agreed on texting mom during the day about the child. its been two years now and our days are very predictable yet mom keeps texting and I keep answering the same thing. Its getting kind of annoying for me and I was wondering if its really necessary at 2 1/2 to be constantly texting about how he's doing and filling out a journal with the same things I told her over the phone.
I work as a live-in nanny for twin almost 3-year-old boys whom I absolutely adore. I've worked for the family for about eight months now, but with my schedule I am starting to lose my mind.
I work 55 hours a week, 7am-6pm M-F. 11 hour days are LONG days. In addition to the twin toddler care, I do the laundry for the entire 5-person family plus myself (including folding and putting away the clothes,) dishes, garbage/recycling, general cleanup, restocking/reorganizing, the occasional errand, etc.
This hasn't been much of an issue until now.
I'm sure every nanny has dealt with this at some point. I've never seen a child misbehave so badly. I'm currently a live in nanny to an awesome family. I care for 3 little ladies... 9 yrs, 3 yrs, 8 months. I have my hands full! I have the worst problems out of the 3 yr old. She throws these raging tantrums over the simplest things. The parents discipline her when they come home from work...usually around 6:30 in the evening. I dont find this method effective because she's being punished for something she did nearly 10 hours ago. How does she even know what she's in trouble for?
