Remember Your Nanny Is Not Your Therapist

Don't Put Your Nanny In the Middle
By Marva Soogrim of Huffington Post

When there is dissention between a married couple, the nanny can often be caught in the crossfire. Like any other job where you're working in someone's home on a daily basis, it's difficult not to witness some drama in a married couple's life. If a divorce is looming, a couple may look to the nanny for advice and support because she (or he) has probably witnessed a lot of the troubles firsthand. However, if a nanny begins to feel like the "nanny in the middle," she may choose to move on.

Remember that the nanny is not a therapist:The nanny is there to focus on the well-being of your children, not to help save your marriage. Seek professional consultation and you will get a professional result. Therapy may be the answer, so be open to it.
