so i have been in the childcare field for almost 8 years now ..... and my son just turned 1 last friday : ) ...... since he was born i have worked for some families that allowed me to bring him with me , na di would also provide childcare from my home full time and even the parents thought it was a great idea because their children/child could interact with mine ! .... which was awesome ! and seeing them playing , interacting , was wonderful and beautiful .......... but i see other cases when some families aren't ok with their nanny bringing her own child ............
what would you do ?
in my case , i would think is fun , perfect and even thought the attention will be split , the are other things that will be good such as learning how to share , interaction with children his own age , etc .........
WOULD YOU BE OK ?
i respect both sides , i just wanted to know how all of u mommies felt about the subjec
I would love to nanny but I would have to bring my son along also so, not sure how that would work. Like you said I think some more laid back families wouldn't mind, but then I think there are the ones who think you would neglect their child if your own is around. I can definitely see both sides.

Personally, it would depend on the situation. If I knew and trusted the person...sure. If this was someone who was recommended - no. That is my personal thought. Being that I use a nanny in the summer months I have put a great deal of consideration into what I am looking for in an individualized child care provider. I think bringingyour child to work with you, in any setting, in not necessarily a good idea. I am very specific about the care....and I require my child's Nanny to read and apply specific parenting styles. Particularly out of Love and Logic. So if she does not use the same techniques for her child - it would be a little uncomfortable for both kids and really defeat the type of role modeling and techniques I choose to use.
