I was a nanny/au pair and governess and my advice is always before starting make sure get past nannies references about the family you are sitting for. It swings both ways and its just as wise to know who you are looking after and why they left and how many they had and getting the families references because the richer they are the meaner the cherubs are. never again. firstly don’t always just give them what they want. any parents who say that are crazy. teach them and spend time with them is good. but its not ok to be abused by them, or their parents unless they are hot and what you want.
