NAN: Parental Authority

Although a nanny plays an important role in disciplining the children in her care and guiding their behavior, nannies must always remember that the parents are the ultimate authority when it comes to choosing discipline strategies and tools and setting behavioral expectations and house rules, along with the consequences for breaking them. Nannies and parents should discuss the discipline strategies and tools that they wish to use to guide behavior and come to an agreement on what tools and strategies would best benefit the child.
