Today, we are sharing an article from our NannyFusion member, Be the Best Nanny Newsletter. Have you had a mentor in your nanny career? I remember back 17 years ago when I first started nannying and having the great fortune to be mentored by some of the pioneering nannies in this field; Harriette Grant, Judith Abranovich, Eva Harkness, and Glenda Propst. I also was able to learn things from Mary Clurman who was one of the people who help start National Nanny Recognition Week. Mentoring has come such a long way as the Internet has exploded. It is so much easier to find nannies at any time of the day and find mentors.
Marni Kent, who has been a professional nanny for over 20 years shares her thoughts on the Importance of Nanny Mentors.
Personal experiences provide powerful lessons for nannies. Mentors should make an extraordinary effort to coach, model, and share both their failures and their success stories with their protégé. Mentors who can talk about themselves and their experiences establish a rapport with other caregivers that need their encouragement.
