Q: What is it like working as a Nanny?
Nanny in Crivitz:
"The parents are the hardest part . . ."
Pros: I love the flexibility of what I wear, the ability to determine what my work day generally looks like, and the kids are amazing.
Cons: I strongly dislike the constant changing, the unfair and sometimes unreasonable expectations from the parents, and the constant pressure of meeting the parents' expectations while nurturing the children (and often those two are in direct conflict with each other).
Nanny in Westminster:
Pros: Flexible hours, use of cellphone.
Cons: Under paid and under appreciated.
Nanny in Chicago:
Pros: What I like most about being a Nanny is that I learn different things everyday. It may be from the children, intresting facts they learn at school. Sometimes I learn different ways of calming them down. It's never a boring day. The kids keep me active, playing legos, hide and go seek, Soccer, basketball. They love reading books and so do I so we often go to the library and read. The jokes they come up with are so unique. Seeing them happy and laughing.
Cons: Least like about my job, the commute . If I get out just a min. Late from my house I will definitely be late. Traffic, road construction. So this teaches me always to give myself time, leave early.
