Re: Anyone ever use a live-in nanny?

Years ago I had a live in nanny job which basically involved the parents taking advantage of me in many areas. It is not easy for unrelated adults to live together. If you give your nanny the exact same consideration you would expect from your job, with a little extra understanding that it is diff. for her not to have privacy, it should be ok.

I would not get an au pair. I see that suggested often on ds. That is an arrangement more for cultural exchange. The au pair is to work/help out in exchange for a modest pay and cultural enrichment opportunities. It is not meant to be a full time childcare situation.
