  • I would ask her what kind of advice does she need, or any questions. Point her in the direction where she has access to all emergency # and your number. Give the basics like bed time, what food he likes or does he like a stroy before he goes to sleep stuff like that. Wish her luck and put her in feet first and see what happens.

  • U really can't "train" someone, she isn't a dog. Your son actually will behave for awhile cause she is a "new" person, or unless she has been there awhile, then he might behave if u are not there. As u know, 4 ys olds are imfamous for changing moods faster then a person who has bipolar disorder!!

  • Give her a schedule of overall categories of things you would like your son to do in your absence.
    For example: Art, Outside play, Inside Play, electronic entertainment, snack, cleaning, etc. Then be sure she knows where the items are that she would need to do some of these activities.

  • I think you need a nanny not a maid.
