Role of a Nanny in a Baby’s Life
Nanny plays a responsible role in the early life of an infant. Especially, if the parents of the child are working for long hours, it becomes vital that the nanny plays a wide array of roles, apart from being present in the house with the child. The following are some of the responsibilities of a trained and professional nanny:
1. Become a Role Model
When babies and toddlers spend more than half their day with nannies, they end up mimicking a lot of actions and gestures from them.
Not sitting in front of the TV all day, not talking on the phone for hours or yelling at others, not inviting and entertaining personal guests at work (without permission), etc. are some ways to show a positive example to children.
2. Be Assertive and Caring
Being patient yet firm when handling tantrums, explaining why discipline is important, showing care and affection, following the basic criteria of baby care at home, etc. are some responsibilities a nanny is trained to be able to handle.
Going to work on time is important. If it is a live-in job, waking up early and performing the regular duties as agreed in the contract is a must for a trained nanny.
3. Communicate Clearly
Being able to communicate with the parents of the child is something every nanny should be able to do.
Explaining any concerns, one might have about the child, recording important information in a dedicated folder (when the children are recovering from illness or needs to be taught basics like Alphabet or some other activity) and keeping the parents updated regularly about their diet, playtime and physical needs will help in keeping the professional relationship healthy.
