Many families find that having a nanny in their home makes their family unit stronger and people who have grown up with a loving nanny have fond memories of their time together.
Trusting Your Nanny
It can take a lot to trust someone else to take care of your children for you. A babysitter might be handy for when you would like to have an occasional evening out, but hiring a nanny is essentially inviting someone to join your family and to help raise your child.
Allowing somebody to teach and discipline your child may feel like a weird concept, but having someone who you know will always be there when your child needs someone is really special. They will always have someone to offer advice, to give them love and dedicate their time to them. As a working parent this is really all you could wish for.
Building your career is important when setting an example to your children and them seeing you work, will make them want to work hard and gain this for themselves. A nanny can help you to achieve this, by building a common goal between you and your child.
Bonding With Your Child
Anything that you have in common with your child will make your bond stronger.
Once you get home from work, you will be able to enjoy some real quality time with your child. This will help to make your family unit stronger as you will have more time to talk to them, give them affection and bond with them.
Additional Help Around Your Home
In addition to this, if you have decided to hire a nanny who will also help you with some housework, this will free up extra time for you which you can then use for family activities. If you are not faced with untidy bedrooms and piles of laundry when you get home from work, you are much more likely to feel relaxed enough to spend time playing or chatting.
Having a nanny will also give your child a sense of independence, as they will learn that their parents will not always be around. This could also help them to build strong relationships in the future and will mean that they will feel comfortable around other adults, such as their teachers when they start school.
A nanny will always have your child as their primary focus, which will make your child feel secure and happy. This means that any aspects that may make your child feel neglected can be avoided, which will make your bond with them even stronger.
Working in Partnership Together
To make a family unit stronger, you must ensure that you have a great relationship with your nanny too. To do this, make sure that expectations from both you and your nanny are clear, and that any issues have been ironed out before they begin working for you.
When your child sees how comfortable and at ease you are with the nanny, they will be happy to bond with them and trust them. Having a nanny will only be able to benefit your family if you are all on the same page and able to create a truly positive relationship.
Your nanny will be part of your family and a massive part of your child’s life. By all working together to achieve the same goals, your family as a whole will be stronger, and you will have the opportunity to enjoy wonderful quality time with your child once your working day is over.
