  • Hi...I live in the Dallas area and have 2 small children. I have a dilemna that has permeated every facet of my life for the last 6 months and am looking to others for help. We have had 5 nannies in the last six months and the turmoil and change it

    Answered on 11th November 2008:

    We actually found our best nanny on Craigslist but after about 9 month with us (our longest tenure for a nanny), her parents were really hounding her to go to college which is why she left. We do reference checks, background checks, etc. I'm convinced that luck does play a big part. We also show our nannies appreciation by buying them gift cards on the spur of the moment, bonus' and paid time off. We are more than fair with them as I am a manager in the corporate world as is my husband. I try to treat those that work for me the way that I want to be treated. I'm adamant about daycare because my daughter caught RSV from her first daycare she was in. Because of that, has a lowered immune system and is more suseptible to getting sick than the average child. Our interim nanny called in sick today so we again had to scramble to find child care today. My husband and I just don't have any more days of work left to take off because we've been through the gammit so many times this year with child care. We are now in the process of finding a new nanny along with a backup - Thanks for all of the replies....
