The Modern Village, a Continuing Education Series for Parents, presents:
Village for Hire: 5 Key Strategies and 1 Secret Insight for Building Strong Relationships with Your Child's Caregiver
Today’s parents rely on many people to assist in caring for their children. It’s not uncommon for a family to have multiple childcare arrangements, or arrangements that evolve over time as children grow. These arrangements require more than trust to work. In order to make these relationships successful and satisfying for everyone they require an entirely new set of skills.
We’ll discuss the practical and emotional realities of sharing the care and raising of your child with a nanny, babysitter or au pair
CV Harquail is a management professor, consultant and Montclair mom of two whose family has hosted 11 different au pairs. For the past six years, CV has been writing the world’s most popular blog about au pairs and host parents: AuPairMom.com.
Drawing from her own host parent experience and from the wisdom of the AuPairMom community, CV will share 5 Key Strategies and 1 Secret Insight for building strong relationships with Au Pairs.
While her focus will be specifically on Au Pairs and ‘live in’ caregivers, these strategies are also useful for parents who employ nannies and babysitters.
