Halloween may have been last week, but a Manhattan family got quite a scare before then. The Carlson residence received a phone call no family wants, from the police saying their young son Frankie’s babysitter was arrested for trying to set a car on fire in New Jersey. Making matters worse, it turned out the sitter Leslie Rosario, brought Frankie along with her for the ride.   “The woman is in my home with access to everything in my home,” Bethany Carlson said. “Especially my son, so we put so much trust in this person.” Carlson says she thought she [ Read the rest…]

Nanny Appreciation Week is Upon Us! Our friends at Amslee Institute wrote a great blog on the time of year we must show our childcare providers some love! Check it out!   National Nanny Recognition Week has been celebrated since 1998 so families, agencies, and communities can champion the work of nannies and childcare providers. As the last week in September is coming up, now is a great time to acknowledge and thank nannies for their contributions.   1. Provide an extra paid day off or a financial bonus. Often, we have time but are short on funds or have [ Read the rest…]

 
Hidden Danger in Popular Children’s Foods That Nannies Should Avoid!
 
  pexels-photo-207381

Being a nanny is serious work, you’re not just watching over a child. Being a nanny means you have a vital role in developing that young child into a healthy upstanding adult. As a nanny it’s your responsibility to promote and manage the child’s activity & nutrition. Doing so helps set the child on their way to an active healthy life. Every week I will list a couple of key steps and points to monitor while on the job.   To begin with, be wary of content in packaged foods. Packaged foods are incredibly convenient. They require little work/preparation & [ Read the rest…]

 
Hiring a Nanny for a Work at Home Environment
 
  564

If you could choose to work from home would you? The sound of it is appealing, earning your paycheck from the comfort of your home, but what if you have kids? While working from home would give you more time with your children, is it truly feasible to manage both your childcare & work responsibilities at the same time?     Flashback to one of my favorite YouTube videos. Professor Robert Kelly is an American political analyst on Inter Korean affairs as well as a professor of political science at Pusan National University. In March of 2017 he was busy [ Read the rest…]

 
There’s a New Law in Town.

References are important. How many times have you based a decision on a positive reference? It can be anything, what movie to see, what restaurant to go to, who to employ? No matter where you go in life, a good reference will tip a decision in a certain direction. Sadly there are people who take advantage of that. In the domestic staffing industry a positive reference can be the difference between getting the job you want vs getting back in the unemployment line. You’d be surprised to see the lengths people go to get these references. Oftentimes people ask close [ Read the rest…]

 
It’s World Cup Season!

Every four years an event occurs that gets the planet buzzing. For four weeks it seems to be all that anyone can talk about. A round spherical object tapped and passed across an 100 yard field constantly trying to find its way into an 8 by 24 foot net. The World Cup is here folks. While sadly our dear USA didn’t qualify this time, we still find ourselves right in the middle of this beautiful tournament as our country is home to millions who have ties to countries participating this year. While some homes unite during this time, it’s popular [ Read the rest…]

 
Short Term / Temporary Staff – Summer is Right Around the Corner!!!!!
 
  Job Responsibilities

For many Employer’s of Household/Domestic Staff, this is the time of year when additional workers are needed.   Though not needing a permanent employee, the same quality & skill-set is essential. References, background and personality component must still be of the level of a “long term” candidate being considered.  The best way to be assured of having expectations met…… is to be up front, in the beginning, about the “temporary nature” of the job. We have seen many family’s indicate they are hiring for a permanent position.  A new member of the “team” comes on board.  In all work environments, [ Read the rest…]

Nanny Wars: It’s A Chore When The Household Staff Goes Mad
 
  Nanny Wars

In an ideal world, household staff will all get along. But when clashes arise over who left the kitchen a mess or who is getting preferential treatment from the parents, all hell can break loose. Lesley Kring thought she had the perfect nanny gig: A $75,000 salary, generous health benefits and vacation time, even her own pool house on the family’s Rye, N.Y., estate. She had such a close, loving relationship with the four children in her charge that she was often mistaken for their mother. Ms. Kring was excited when she learned the stay-at-home mom she worked for wanted [ Read the rest…]
