Posted by HomeWork Solutions on Sep 26, 2017 3:40:00 PM

US Citizens and foreign nationals coming to the US for a temporary stay may legally bring their nanny or other domestic help with them by securing a B1 visa. These employers are typically senior executives for large corporations and certain US government employees routinely posted abroad. The US State Department, which oversees the issuance of the B1 visas, imposes certain requirements on the employer to ensure that the foreign domestic worker is treated in accordance with US labor laws and is not exploited.

I Nanny for a Military Family...

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on Sep 19, 2017 3:40:00 PM

Military families live a unique lifestyle. Oftentimes, a military family won’t live in the same place for more than a few years, and they learn to embrace the adventure of living in new places. No matter how exciting moving from place to place is, it can be difficult at times on each member of the family, especially the children. Add to this the stress that having a parent deployed for long periods of time, and it is understandable that the children (and the spouse at home) need extra emotional support. Having a strong family unit in place is important, but adding a nanny into the mix can be an incredibly beneficial thing, too. Here are some of the pros and cons of working as a nanny for a military family.

Kindergarten and the Nanny : Changing Job Duties

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on Aug 15, 2017 3:13:00 PM

Working as a nanny is not only job, but it’s an emotional investment. Nannies come to love the children they take care of and when the children start school, saying goodbye can be hard. Even though the child may not need all-day care as they once did, keeping a nanny on full time can still be very beneficial for families. If that is what happens, then the family and the nanny will need to sit down and discuss job duties and how the routine and job will need to change. Kindergarten is either full day or half day, depending on the school and school district and having the nanny available for the child before or after school, as well as sick days and school holidays, can be extremely beneficial.
