Seeking a New Model
This chapter examines alternative employer-childcare provider relationships and explores avenues for change. It describes the common relationships between mother-employers and nannies and shows that paid childcare can be incorporated into family life in ways that benefit all the participants. It explains that nannies who reflected on their ideal relationship also emphasized the importance of communication and mutual respect. It highlights the importance of determining best practices that facilitate successful communication and mutual recognition in parent-caregiver relationships given the fact that childcare workers are here to stay as crucial members of families' childrearing strategies.
