And...we're back On-Topic!! (Yes, I agree with you).
Also, I know there are jobs that exist that making a small personal phone call is very frowned upon - but it is b/c of the nature of the work (eg. Retail or Restaurant work come to mind).
But again, comparing other totally different lines of work to nanny work doesn't make sense.
Where is the common sense in all this?? And what on earth is a parent doing entrusting her children with someone to care for if she can't trust their judgment around a PHONE CALL??
What, is she going to check her personal cell phone at the end of each day and monitor all the calls and times?
UGH. Do people not see how micromanaging someone you TRUST WITH YOUR CHILD like cannot be good?
I was also wondering this. How would you know if they had used their cell phone for personal calls? Interrogate your children at days end? Check their personal cell phone?
Or just trust them?
