As for job scope, I’m looking at this – I’ll like a helper that’s neat & organised and disciplined. Able to take care of 10 months old baby until baby goes to childcare at 18 months. I’ve my firstborn who is 5 years old currently in childcare. Cook 2-3 times in a week for dinners. Housekeeping in the morning before everyone is up between 6pm – 730pm.
To keep their own phones away during the weekdays and have it out at 830pm onwards after the kids are asleep. Saturday – phone can be out.
I believe in giving helpers the autonomy to run the household independently taking main guidelines from me. I trust them to do their best, however I noticed phone usage during working hours to be an issue. I’ve decided that phone to be kept away to avoid misunderstandings during weekdays (and thus out only after 830pm). Saturdays – phone can be with them, no issue. I’m not confiscating, neither checking phones at all. Helper’s privacy is respected and I believe in treating helpers with respect and trust.
