In 2013, an article was published in the newspaper ABC , which mentioned all the requirements that an ideal nanny or kangaroo should meet . Based on this
article, we have selected the five essential aspects:
Availability and predisposition. It is important that the parents establish with the nanny the type of agreement to be agreed upon. That is, if they need a babysitter on time, when they go out at night for dinner or a movie, or if they need a full-time nanny. It is important that she, whatever the type of day to be agreed, is eager and willing. That is, children should like it .
Experience. It is another essential aspect, since the nanny will spend many hours with the children and must know how to act in each case : bath time , food, games, how to act in an emergency, etc.
Organization and regularity. It is important that the kangaroo is an organized person who knows how to instill in children a regularity in the performance of daily activities. For example, you should know how to organize your time if you should pick up the children at school, take them to an after school activity, then give them the snack, be on time for the bathroom, and so on.
Confidence and security. It is the most important aspect of all. You should be calm when you leave the child with the kangaroo, so you must be a person with whom you know your child will be well cared for and cared for.
Learning. One plus, which has now become a trend, is to hire a nanny who, in addition, provides your child with additional learning. This is the case of au pairs , nannies of foreign nationalities who, in addition to caring for the child, speak in their language (English, French, German, Italian) in order to learn it.
