You might think that bringing a nanny on vacation will diminish the quality of time you spend with your family. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. A nanny can actually bring your family closer together. Here are a few reasons why:
1. You and your spouse can spend time together
Let's start off by saying that spending time alone doesn't mean you dislike spending time with your children. However, to prevent parenting burnout, it's important to also take a break from mommy and daddy duties. A nanny can help you do that while on vacation. As part of your vacation itinerary, schedule a few dinners for just you and your spouse. Even take a day to explore the local area together.
2. Improves a nanny's work-life balance
Your nanny may never have the opportunity to travel alone to the exotic locations you and your family go to. So, why not bring her along? Work-life balance is one of the most important aspects of a job that employees consider. According to an Eagle Hill poll of 400 Washington DC-area employees, 64 percent agreed "work-life balance Is the most important factor for defining overall professional satisfaction."
3. Decrease stress
In busy destinations like Disney World or other major theme parks, it's often difficult to keep tabs on your wandering children. Their attention often quickly drifts from one ride to the next or from the ice cream stand to the gift shop. Having an extra set of eyes watching them is certainly helpful. Over 2,000 kids each day get lost in a variety of public airports. It doesn't sound like a high statistic, but try telling that to the parents with lost children.
