The most important part about being a nanny…The most important thing about being a nanny to me is that you have to bond with the kids that your watching/working with in order to build a stronger relationship. I also think being calm helps a lot. Many times parents will try to put a little one down for a nap and not be able to, but then hand them to me and they will go down almost immediately. I have put a screaming 15 month old down in a room full of 200 people. Kids usually really love me:)
My experience with special needs children…I haven't worked with kids younger than me with special needs, but I do hangout with some amazing high schoolers!
