There’s been an article making the rounds on facebook lately about young children and their use / addiction of tech like ipads and smart phones.  (Check out Sue’s blog response at  Sue and I jump right into the middle of the issue asking should tech be allowed, how much is too much and what’s the downside of having it as a regular part of your kid’s life.  Also, how does this debate impact you as a nanny since your views might be very different than your employers.

This episode goes a few different directions as we take on a suggested topic of who gets to choose what a nanny does while the kids nap. Is it ok for the parents to set down some boundaries or is it "free time". We go on to discuss if a nanny can take on a "parent" attitude. We follow this discussion through a few different paths. Thanks so much to our listener for sending it in!
