In Honor of National Nanny Recognition Week
By Emelie Wingblad Root
I've spent the last 16-years working in the child care industry and feel that one of my best assets is the way I relate to children!
Caring for children is the one thing in my life that I can confidently say that I know how to do, and being a nanny allows me the opportunity to put that knowledge into practice five days a week.
I enjoy the one-on-one time that being a nanny allows me to spend with the children I care for as well as the feeling that I'm taking part in something bigger, in some small way, helping to mold and shape these children into the adults they will someday become.
I can only hope that as their caregiver, some small thing that I have taught them, or said to them, will stay with them throughout their lives just as I will always remember my time with them!
Seeing these kids grow and change everyday is a blessing and I can't see myself doing anything else.
Why do you think working as a nanny is important?
