Re: Anyone ever use a live-in nanny?

I think you need to sit down with DH and come up with exactly what you are looking for, and then you and the nanny need to have a very specific contract...can she bring men there, what hours is she working, does she join the family for meals, can she invite friends over for a meal, who does the disciplining/corrects the kids when you are home, what things does she need to do, can she use your internet...and just have a really specific agreement with her.

My mom's friend had a live in nanny, but it didn't last long. The nanny had a hard time "turning off" when the parents were home, and the parents felt like she was a third parent even when they were home, which they were uncomfortable with. Plus, her husband never could come out of his room and go downstairs in his underwear to get a snack in the middle of the night. That bothered him.
