A nanny is a person who cares for your child exclusively. Modern nannies may live with you or not, depending on your circumstances.

Advantages may include:

  • Flexibility in designing your nanny’s hours.
  • Complete attention given to your child.
  • Having someone to care for your sick child in the comfort of his own home.
  • Decreased exposure to germs.
  • Having them become a member of the extended family.

Disadvantages may include:

  • Panic when the nanny is ill.
  • Variability in quality, qualifications of applicants.
  • Cost.

*It’s important to note that these pros and cons may not apply to the nanny you’re considering, so be sure to do your homework.
