Before you decide the person who will be hired to take care of your child, you need to make sure that they are the right person to be doing that job. A problem with a lot of people who hire nannies is that they often feel too shy to ask them difficult questions or they want to appear to be likeable and so do not end up asking anything too serious or end up giving away a hint to what a good answer would be to that specific question. In this article we will talk about a number of things that you should cover when talking to or interviewing your potential nannies and how you should interact with them at that point.
One thing that you need to know and remember at all times is that you are an employer in this situation and you are choosing someone who will be taking care of your child for a long time. This person will affect your child a little bit and will be around your child all the time. So there is no place for being timid or feeling awkward. Straight away ask about anything that you need to know about. Ask about smoking habits, drinking habit, about any past drug use. Also ask about previous jobs, family, and general hobbies and cross question to see if they are lying.
An important thing you will need to know for sure is whether the nanny can provide any emergency assistance. Say the baby gets hurt or gets really sick then can the nanny be of any help in that situation. The emergency services should also provide the nanny’s presence in case something happens to you.
