Following! My NF just asked me if I would be interested in traveling with them. I would. But how does this work? I know nannies are suppose to be paid hourly but how does that work when I am with them around the clock?
The family has never had a nanny travel with them either so they are just as clueless as I. Thanks in advance for any guidance!Devin L.ParticipantDecember 28, 2017 at 8:00 pmPost count: 11
I think it is ok for an adult to say they need a “time out” or “calm down time”. I think it is actually a good thing because it models “awareness”.
After your “calm down time” you can return and say “thank you for giving me a little time so I could calm myself down to think more clearly.”
Then if there is an unresolved issue you can say “when you feel ready, I am now ready to finish our conversation”. If there is nothing to talk about you just thank them for understanding you needed a little space.
As a nanny caring for older children, I would def brief the parents on your tactic as of course children can spin things when they report the incident. lolDevin L.ParticipantDecember 27, 2017 at 8:01 pmPost count: 11Devin L.ParticipantNovember 3, 2017 at 2:54 pmPost count: 11

My employer really likes their Acura MDX. It has a 3rd row.
