Nannies have a unique position that allows them to help guide a child in many real life situations. Teaching life skills is not something that you can always plan for however. We talk about how many of the challenges we face with our kids are really teachable moments. 

Please note: We apologize for the slight echo. We are working to improve our audio quality.
