Join Mommybites and CareAcademy.co as they walk you through some strategies for good communication between parents and nannies!
Whether it’s your nanny, daycare provider, or the Saturday night babysitter, life can get crazy enough that we forget the importance of good communication with our caregiver.
Open and honest communication between the nanny and parent not only makes for a smoother day, but it is also important for the children’s wellbeing. Honing communication skills makes both the parent’s and nanny’s job easier and paves the way to a true partnership in raising the children.
In this teleclass, we have both a noted nanny and trusted parent consultant, who will provide some strategies for forging a healthy parent-nanny relationship
We will discuss:
- How to have a difficult discussion about those really sensitive issues?
- The best approaches for communication between parents and nannies
- Tools and Tips to make communication easier throughout the day,
- An easy to make contract you can use to avoid most issues that arise within a nanny/family relationship
Nannies and parents are welcome to this discussion.
