Hi to all the Moms out there,
I have been a nanny to a 3 year old girl since she was around 8 months old now. The mom is a stay-at-home mom, and the dad is in medicine. Child is in full day preschool 4 days a week, and then I am there some evenings and weekends. 90% of the time the mom is home (stays in her bedroom). It was easier when child was younger, but now that she understands and is aware that Mom is in house it is hard to do my job, for example getting her ready for bed etc. The mom and I have a good relationship, and I have been worrying more than usual lately. My opinion is that she is depressed, possibly from Post-partum. I know it is not my place to interfere, however I find it very difficult as I care very much for the child and see how it is influencing her attachment with parents and behaviour....
Sorry for the long post! Was wondering if any moms had any advice for me?
Thanks so much!
