This old No Non-cents Nanna knows it is time to take some of her babysitter’s rules out of moth balls.
Mary Poppins inspired me with her spoon full of sugar and now I have the No Non-cents Nanna way!
Here is what I know from
years decades of working with children as a big sister; a babysitter; Sunday School teacher; a Register Nurse….I almost forgot the mommy and grand mommy role.
- Children feel more secure when they know the boundaries.
- Having written rules help everyone know what is expected of each other to feel happy and safe.
- Do know what the family’s rules are. Are they posted?—
Babysitters need a list of rules that may be structured a tad different from the family rules.
Sometimes the kids have no idea what a house rule is- have your rules anyway for their safety.
