Should Nannies Share Their Own Political Beliefs With the Children in Their Care?
I overheard that the local teachers in the elementary school district not allowed to share their personal political opinions in class. They are allowed to teach history of course, but not try to sway kids to follow a liberal or conservative, democratic or republican view point.
I have not shared the same political philosophies with all of the parents who have hired me as a full-time nanny. That is often the case between most employee and employer relationships. Of course, we all have the first amendment right to share our own political beliefs. But, should we share our own political opinions with the children under our care?
