Why Do I Like Working as a Nanny?

There is Nothing Better Than Helping Raise a Child
By De-Shaun Silas

Why do I like working as a nanny? For me, there is nothing better than knowing that I have had a hand in helping raise a child and had a life-long impact on their lives.

I don’t just like what I do, I LOVE what I do. Not many people can say they enjoy what they do for a living, and really mean it, but I can.

No matter how many tantrums, errands, dirty diapers, spit up, last minute school projects, and chaotic days you have, when you work as a nanny you know at the end of the day the children will look at you with pure admiration.

They admire you because they know they can trust and count on you to wipe every tear, to laugh at their jokes, to play a round of hide and seek, to comfort them when they are sad or sick, and to just be silly with them.

These are the reasons I love my job, because no matter what happens, I know I made a difference in the life of a child and my positive influence will stay with them forever.
