Confessions of a Runaway Nanny: Mrs. S. and Her Nanny Search Profile.


I couldn’t resist. I just had to share Mrs. S’s nanny search profile. Take note of the extensive  background requirement. Mrs. S. did none of these. I know this because she never asked for my social security number and had no way of getting it. Since Mrs. S. put me in the same bedroom as her 2 boys it is a darn good thing I’m not a convicted child molester. I certainly didn’t have my own bathroom. I shared a lockless kiddie bathroom with a transparent shower curtain, and, yes, one of the boys walked in on me while I was showering. I was also forced to dress in the bathroom since I had no privacy in my shared bedroom.The housekeeper who does “the BIG cleaning” never existed or perhaps she was hiding from Mrs. S. the whole time I was there. As for the “loving parents” I did not see one display of affection from Mrs. S. towards any of the children. I emailed the nanny service to advise them that Mrs. S’s profile is in no way honest or truthful. They responded by telling me they’d “look into it and put a notation in the family’s file”, whatever that means. So, obviously this woman will continue to scam unsuspecting nannies. As for pay…to this date I have not received one dime from Mrs. S. even after emailing her asking her to do the right thing and pay me for my time and expenses. She has yet to respond to my email.

We are happy and lively and high spirited. The three children, ages, 5,7 and 8 are each totally different from one another. They are sweet and kind and smart, and open-hearted. I like a slightly more formal form of child-rearing– respectful, old fashioned, polite. I like an organized, neat, clean home. My husband and I are very affectionate with our children and they in turn are loving.

We are looking for someone who is a good role model, who is kind and fun, but also very responsible, organized, self motivated, neat, and clean. We want someone who can see herself as a parent surrogate when we are not there, and who can help share our values with our children.
