In this episode we discuss venting. Are nannies better at complaining about their jobs than other professions? Where is the line betweeen venting and wallowing? It is important to let off some steam about your job and actually can be helpful as suggestions are offered and new perspecitives considered. But when is enough enough? We discuss and hope you will join in the discussion.
