A new comer to the family, especially if she’s caretaker, must be specifically informed about and discussed with the kids. A living in housemaid generally has to spend more of her time with kids and get acquainted with them thoroughly. Likewise the kids should also be mentally prepared and be in a position to accept the new addition to their family with whom they may have to spend most of their time. In order to streamline the maid and the kid relation certain factors about the maid have to be apprised to the kids. Mainly where has the maid come from? If she’s from a different country, then more details about her country must be told to the children so that the children get well prepared about that. How old is the maid? If she’s quite old then the children must be informed about her habits, likes, dislikes and so on. Where has she worked previously? Had she been taking care kids with her previous employment? Has she got a family back in her hometown? If so a bit about her family.
All the same, the maid also must be advised about the family, the kids and so on. The maid must be well informed about the kids, whether the kid is mischievous? Or is the kid very fond of the parents? The habits of the kids, their nature, their food likes, and so on, so that the maid can deal with the kids properly.
The maid and the kid relationship can last long only if there is harmony between both. To achieve this bondage the maid must be well informed about the kid. The maid must be encouraged to go together with the kid to a nearby playground or a park of the kid’s preference. Because during playtime the kids mind will be more flexible, relaxed and accepting. If the kid is still a toddler a nice way to get close to him or her is to sing lullabies and narrate small stories, which will surely bring the tot close the new caretaker.
“All days are not Sundays” says the proverb. Likewise the maid and the kid may not get along well sometimes. At such junctures you are likely to hear tons of complaints on each other…!!! It is then you have to remain poised and calm. Listening to each other’s complaint and then deciding about it should be the need of the hour…!
The child’s dependency on the maid sometimes will ruin his progress with regards to growing up into a responsible adult. Certain tasks which the child can do himself must be encouraged. A slow progressive transition into carrying out tasks like occasional cleaning, keeping toys in proper place, taking care of school books and so on will certainly allow the kid to be disciplined and well groomed.
