More Than Nanny Cams
Yesterday we discussed building trust between nannies and parents by conducting thorough interviews, background checks, and by using nanny cams. http://bestnannynewsletter.blogspot.com/2009/01/nanny-cams.html
We should mention there are other technologies parents use to track nannies.
Parents may use global positioning systems (GPS) in the cars used by nannies to transport children. Employer supplied cell phones may also be used to locate the nannies. Using GPS systems to monitor where nannies and children go is legal.
Parents may also require nannies to be photographed and fingerprinted. A few may even ask nanny candidates to be screened for drugs.
The development of new technologies is something that nannies must accept.
Have you ever been asked to be fingerprinted, drug tested, or tracked by a GPS system?
