|Please describe your discipline style, and what methods you'd be comfortable having your nanny use:|
time out, reward charts, taking away privileges I like to first thoroughly understand the situation and then look for the teaching opportunity - they're children after all - they just need to be taught. if they are throwing a fit its usually that they have not been listened to about something and are trying to communicate something - so I try to stop and listen first - usually that takes care of the fit.
|Are there any family problems a nanny should be aware of, or is there anyone in your family involved in treatment (counselling, medication, support groups, etc.) for special needs such as learning disabilities, chronic illness, family trauma, etc.?|
Nothing major - Olivia has hypoglycemia so she just cannot skip meals, especially if she is sick. She will likely never have a problem because she is a good eater.
