How Often Do You Meet With the Parents to Discuss the Job?
Since I started working as a nanny in the 1990's both nanny agency staff, my employers, and nanny friends have recommended that I schedule weekly meetings with the parents.
The idea is for the nanny and at least one parent to meet weekly without the children present as an opportunity to talk to one another about the children or any issues that come up about the nanny job. Although most meetings are simple and brief, the idea is to bring up any issues during that time each week.
I think the idea of a weekly meetings is terrific but I have never followed through and actually had a weekly meeting with parents at any of my seven nanny jobs.
Do you have regularly scheduled weekly (bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly) meetings with your employers?
