Working as a nanny is unlike any other job. It requires you to be professional and personal at the same time, to maintain a work environment in someone else’s home, to be an employee to a parent that often doesn’t understand their role as an employer, and to love a child with your whole heart while knowing one day your role there will end. Being a nanny means straddling the line between being part of the family – a term that means something different to everyone -and being a paid helper. In this session, we’ll look at the many roles a nanny takes on within a family, explore the dynamics of the parent / nanny relationship (including the little talked about power dynamic), and share strategies for navigating a nanny’s dual role in a way that is professionally and personally healthy. Presented by Lora Brawley.
