I have no written rules for my nanny.
I have an unwritten rule to always a) use carseats properly; b) that taking all four kiddos to the beach would scare the crap out of me (she agreed completely) and c) minimize crap food.
I think if you have to have an extended list of written rules (which includes don't hit the kids), you have hired the wrong person.
umm i will say though that if you have to specify to your nanny that she shouldnt hit your kids you might want to consider a different nanny. never in a zillion years would i ever ever ever hit a kids i was babysitting for. (or my own kids but even for someone who does hit their kids... why in the heck would you hit someone else's?)
|The one thing we did not discuss that I wish we had was food for the nanny, as opposed to the kids. You should specify if she/he is welcome to eat anything and everything in the house, or if everything is off-limits, or something in between.|
