Is Your Mom Boss Like Nancy or Bambi?
In the aftermath of the Casey Anthony trial, some commentators negatively portrayed HLN's Nancy Grace as cranky, aggressive, and opinionated. Those characterizations sound just like the way some nannies describe their Mom Bosses. Ambitious, hard-driving, and unyielding, these Mom Bosses can be difficult employers.
Then there is the Mom Boss who cries at the mention of Bambi. The maternal instinct of these Mom Bosses is always near the surface. They are doting and obsessed with the children's smallest needs.
Both types of Mom Bosses love their kids. The 'Nancy' mom needs a nanny so she can pursue her career. The 'Bambi' mom needs a nanny to be able to extend her social network.
Obviously, no Mom Boss is exclusively one type or another, and no one should be specifically classified.
Does your Mom Boss fit into these categories? If so, how does your Mom Boss affect your actions as a nanny?
