Nanny Tip of the Week! Be considerate of your nanny’s time on the clock. If she is supposed to leave at 8 pm, honor that by releasing her at 8 pm or make a request for her to stay longer if you will be late. The majority of the time, the nanny is happy to be flexible. Also, if you know you are always going to be 15 minutes late with traffic, it’s better to overestimate the nanny’s “out” time. A nanny will never be upset for being asked to leave a few minutes early. Mutual respect goes a long way!
