Your caregiver is entrusted with your most vulnerable family members - your children. You'll want to show her how important her role is to you. Introduce her to your friends and family. (Ask her first how she would like to be introduced: babysitter? nanny? by her first name? as Ms., Mrs., or Miss?) Give your caregiver and your children the room to develop a caring relationship. Listen to what she has to say about them. Never undermine her authority in front of them. If you find you can't treat your caregiver respectfully, she is not right for your family.
