Looking after your own kids is tough enough, but they’re your own flesh and blood and you kind of like them and all. Now, imagine having to do the same thing for someone else’s brats day in and day out… well, if you work as a nanny, you won’t have to imagine! Of course, there are some awesome things about being a nanny, especially if you look after a great kid. However, it’s never going to be the same as parenting children of your own, and the long hours and low pay hardly do much to sweeten the deal. These nannies have shared some of the things that they dislike about what they do and we’re sure other childcare professionals will relate! Check out these twelve things you’ll only understand if you’re a nanny.
