  • Great video talking about the differences between a nanny and babysitter! Can you do a follow-up on how to go about finding a nanny, what parents who are looking for care for their children should look for/avoid? Maybe also how a nanny goes about choosing a family? (Perhaps you’ve already covered this…)

  • I have been a nanny and a babysitter. I still babysit, but I don’t think I’ll nanny ever again. I nannied because I needed a job, not necessarily because I enjoyed it. I didn’t have formal training in it, but I did work to understand the kids better with research and what you mentioned. I will say, I still babysit because I love kids, but I’ll never nanny again for the same reason. I’m not a great nanny, and kids deserve someone who will be all in.
