Top 5 tips to hire a dream nanny

Nothing compares to the immense relief a mother feels when she knows her child is in safe and loving hands while she is away. A nanny or house help is increasingly becoming the indispensable support system for working as well as stay-at-home mothers in urban and semi-urban parts of the country.

bookmybai are totally useless as i contacted thrm for my need but they never turned up even after many follow ups or even I mentioned same issue on their facebook page still no courtesy and reply from the company ... on the other hand We are also facing same issues we train and nannies run away in month inspite of doing every damn thing to make them comfortable. ...even through referrals they come. and work for month earn nice salary and go back to their village... this has been practise with all we have come across....

I would also like to share my own experience in the same context. We had hired a Nepali elderly woman through an agency in Delhi. we were asked to pay 35000/- as yearly fee in addition to the monthly payment to the maid. She seemed nice and hygenic. Also we had told the agency that we will not pay the full fee upfront and will test her for a few days. She spent around a month with us, we had paid the amount till then. Her interest in carying her duties declining everyday. The reason she told us was that she could not contact her son and she was worried. we tried to help by calling on various numbers she had provided of her son and othe relatives and friends. she tried to leave the house for shopping or a little outing everyday stating that she gets bored in house, but we refused stating that society guards will not allow her unaccompanied plus the area was aloof and it was not safe for her to go alone. She found an opportunity next momnth when we had to go outstation. She said she would visit her sister in Delhi and come back when we will come back from the trip. That was the last we saw her. The agency does not help. All the numbers that she gave us were no longer working. Later we came to know that the a few girls from same agency that were hired at the same time as us had fled within 1-2 days. I was heartbroken and felt cheated. We treated her like an aunt considering her age. gave her all that she wanted good facilities and food same as we had. I never tried to hire from another agency again. Needless to say we did not get our 35000/- back.

Well done Neetu! I appreciate ur efforts to guide parents wat to look for in nannies. This topic has become an agenda in every home n one is considered fortunate enough if being able to employ a right person as a caretaker of r kids.

If we r unlucky to encounter a wrong person as a house help it could be d worst thing to happen as it wud affect not only us but r entire family especially r kids for whom we had employed them. So friends beware of a negative person they can b cruel beyond r imagination and can hurt in a way which is a difficult to heal.
