Hi everyone! Hope you had a relaxing Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™‚

A common question parents ask me is: “Can I ask my nanny to help with the dishes?”. While it’s not a simple “yes” or “no” question, there are some job duties that are considered standard for a nanny position.

But there are other duties that can move the role more towards a family assistant position. When this happens, the nanny/family assistant will typically ask for a higher hourly rate to account for the additional job duties.

Let’s discuss standard nanny job duties and how to handle dishwashing duties!

Hi everyone! Laura from Nanny Parent Connection back with this week’s video which has been requested by many of you.

Today, I am going to discuss the nuts and bolts of how to set up a nanny share. Nanny shares can be a fantastic child care option as you will receive a higher degree of personalized care than you might get from a child care center at a more affordable price point than hiring a nanny on your own.

Hi everyone. Laura from Nanny Parent Connection here.

As the days grow shorter, I’m beginning to think about indoor activities for my kids. Today, I am going to teach you how to use ChatGPT to create amazing, customized stories about your kids (or nanny kids).

My kids LOVED the story that I had ChatGPT write about them and your kids will to! There is no limit to the stories that ChatGPT can develop.

Does your child like the Berenstain Bears and superheroes? Build a story where the Berenstain Bears are superheroes with their own specific powers and your child joins them!

Don’t miss this amazing, free “pro tip” that just takes a few moments to set up. Enjoy!

The Barbie Movie is everywhere right now and has some great messaging about self worth as well as the world we live in. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. It’s fantastic!

Working as a nanny can feel a bit isolating at times. You aren’t interacting with coworkers or peers on a regular basis and you may spend hours every day with a little person that can’t communicate with you yet.

Check out my latest video where I discuss four lessons that nannies can learn from the Barbie Movie. I hope you find this video fun and useful!

Hi everyone. Laura from Nanny Parent Connection here. Hope you are getting excited for Halloween!

I wanted to reach into the mailbag again and discuss another question that I hear regularly from nannies. This can be a bit of a complicated topic:

“I absolutely love working with my nanny family and I want to continue working with them. However, as we are transitioning to the school year, they are cutting my hours by wanting me to commit solely to them and remain available to work additional hours. How can I go about navigating this with them while keeping my income requirements in mind?”
