With more and more talented females entering the workforce and playing important leadership roles, stay-at-home dads and nannies are becoming the new normal.  Today, we invited Katie Provinziano, the founder of Westside Nannies and is based out of Los Angeles, to talk about her industry.  As you can imagine, because of COVID, the demand for nannies has grown exponentially (school/daycare are closed), and yet the supply has remained quite low.  As a result, pricing has increased greatly.  Katie explained the scope of work a family can expect from a nanny, the “nanny & house assistance” combo, and the importance of confidentiality.  Nathaniel was curious about how does one decide between a nanny or daycare, and Katie gave her inciteful opinion.  She also gave some tips on how to create a successful relationship with your nanny: express your appreciation, be kind, pay them well, treat them right, and set reasonable boundaries.  As Katie said, your house is the nanny’s workplace now - you can’t just walk around naked anymore!  She pointed out some big mistakes she has seen when parents hire nannies on their own.  Overall, welcoming a complete stranger into your house to take care of the person you love the most can be a stressful process.  Do your due diligence - it shouldn’t be a shameful thing to admit that, hey, we need a professional's help to do this right!
