When choosing a baby sitter, you should not rely solely on intuition.
The best advisor in this matter - common sense.
When deciding on such important matters as the selection of the house personnel, who are you going to entrust your child should try to avoid common mistakes.
1. Inattention to the nurse advice you can do a disservice. Making a decision about your child, you must try to think through everything properly. To form an opinion about the nurse does not have to be guided only by intuition - study recommendations, do not be lazy to call the people who have provided them, ask the age of the children for whom the nurse taking care to find out how they evaluate its work. Keep in mind that the recommendations can write any good words.
2. Finding a nanny at the last minute - it's not very convenient. "For later" Do not carry things. To find a nanny who will be able to fully meet your needs, and do not bring much damage to the family budget, while the stock of time you can even arrange a competitive selection. Study recommendations, ask friends. Ideally, the new nanny should take office ten days before the day you are going to go to work - you can see how she treats the baby, whether they are suited to each other.
3. Failure to choose a babysitter. Have you ever noticed how much time you spend on a selection of times for themselves new clothes? Surprisingly, the selection procedure for a good babysitter sometimes parents spend much faster. Take this sufficient time, taking into account the age of your child, how he would react to a new person in the house, find a nanny and education, and experience, and how well she owns modern methods of child development.
4. Be aware of their responsibilities in terms of the employer. When choosing a babysitter, be aware that you will need to act precisely in this role. Feel free to explore the biography and babysitting experience, habits, character and health. Ask whether the nurse their children, find out their age and gender, what kind of relationship between them. Specify payment issues, clearly defined responsibilities, work schedule, find out in advance whether the nurse agrees to stay with the child for longer than agreed, if necessary once.
5. Be sure to try to take into account the long-term needs of the family. Once you have decided on the amount that can be safely isolated from your budget to pay for the nurse's services, and determine the period for which you need it, ask the nurse's plans for the future - whether it intends to work you this time. Also, think in advance and this option is that you leave the nurse suddenly - one member of the family in this case would be free (for example, to take a short vacation) at the time, which would require the search for a new nanny.
