Hiring Advice

A clear understanding of the job is the key to success. Our book, 50 Parent Commandments, addresses many of the topics that should be discussed during the Nanny/Family interviewing process.

Hiring a babysitter or a nanny involves asking the right questions. My Good Nanny  is happy to offer a compilation of common questions and topics to use as a guide when interviewing a potential candidate. For more details around these questions please see 50 Parent Commandments.
