[ - ] Nanny eating anything she wants in bosses home is not the same as using toilet paper, eating a raisin or any other crap you are coming up with. I once had a nanny who opened and ate an entire jar of caviar I had bought for a dinner party. Same nanny opened a box of hair color I bought and used it putting a color stain in a newly renovated bathroom. Its all about good judgement. It is hard to explain in one post but I agree that if there is a limited amount of somehting in the fridge nanny shouldn't just be finishing it because she wants it. Its common sense. Feeding a nanny doesn't have to be part of the compensation package. The best nannies I had always brought lunch and I never asked them to. 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Even if you are ok with nanny eating your food she should have enough common sense to not open a sealed jar of caviar. Don't you agree?

it's about setting rules ahead of time and making your expectations clear before you hand her that very first stack of cash. when the rules are crystal clear at the outset, to the point of being annoyingly detailed and probably a little petty, this stuff doesn't happen. people treat the employment of a nanny way too casually because they don't want to come off as uncool, but then they have to be "uncool" later when they have a little talk with the nanny.

I have had nannies work for me for over 10 years as I have 3 children of different ages. I just have a ton of experience. I have had some great nannies and I have had some not so great nannies. The best thing to do when you run into a nanny that is not using good common sense is to replace immediately and not to question if you are managing her correctly. I have had one nanny who worked for me for over 4 years and another nanny who worked for me for 3 years and I have had a couple I needed to let go quickly. [ Reply | More ]

What do you think of the Jewish people? [ Reply | More ]

Like all people, there are good and bad. I didn't grow up with any strong feelings either way (my parents were a little biased though). A few of my friends are Jewish (kind of hard to avoid in this city) and I have never had any problems. They are just people. [ Reply | More ]

Hi. I live in a neighborhood with a big Muslim demographic (Brooklyn). Any challenges in Manhattan? I ask because there are stores and the like that cater to that community where I live. [ Reply | More ]

I think in general there is a lot of prejudice in Manhattan especially. I get nasty comments and pitiful looks on occasion. It was worse where I grew up (Boston WASPy suburb). [ Reply | More ]

I think there a certain bias in Brooklyn too, although it isn't as obvious. Some of the old-timers will make passing comments but I think that would happen with any new group. The kids seem to get along. [ Reply | More ]

No, and I don't think a 'Burka' is quite what you think it is. [ Reply | More ]

You're here because of the current conflict in Gaza, aren't you? You want feedback, don't you? [ Reply | More ]

No, I don't have any strong opinions over the Gaza conflict. I don't feel that connected to what happens in the middle east, nor do I think this situation is all that big compared to what other hells go on in this world. Is that so wrong? [ Reply | More ]

Skirt tankinis or onepieces with a little sleeve. I'm far too lazy to deal with anything else and I don't think it is worth the trouble to go all out as some religious women do. [ Reply | More ]

Do you drink alcohol ever? [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 07.24.14, 07:36 PM Flag

Not often, but I sometimes break out a bottle of wine in the privacy of my own home. Christians get drunk, it's not THAT big of a deal to me. My parents were very strict about this, though. They didn't use alcohol in anything, even while cooking. [ Reply | More ]
