are not forever, and the reasons for letting your child's caregiver do vary. Often, the children grow up and your
beloved family nanny
is no longer needed. Perhaps the nanny has horrible work habits - always late or a frequent 'no show.' Your family and the nanny simply may not 'click.'

Whatever the reason, figuring out how to terminate an employee gracefully can be an uncomfortable experience for both family and nanny.
