    How Can I Find A Nanny?

    I need a reliable, live-in Nanny to help my wife around the house with laundry, dishes and care of a young boy (20 months).

    Where can I find one? How much would they cost?

    As to where to get one the best advice I can give is ask around as you are doing. There are basically two kinds. The best have some nurse training and can speak some English, they run 5500 minimun a month I would say. I have had mine for 8 years and she is now on 6400. The other way is the cheapy way, Burmese, or low educated young Thai. 3000 would probably get one. These are based on a live in nanny. And its your child you are trusting her with.
    Your wife is not working? What does she do?
    Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
    Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
    Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
    Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.

    Obviously, not much !

    Sounds like you need a live-in maid who is prepared to do some ad-hoc babysitting, not a nanny. Try a Burmese. More hard working and reliable than Thai IMHO and experience.

    Oi ! Cheeky arab !

    Mustahfah,

    Upon reflection you are correct most nannies are not into cleaning. The only problem with a Burmese is that the child could end up speaking neither the mothers or the fathers native tongue. I have seen it happen.

    With nannies, references are very important.

    Ask for several and check on them.

    Good luck.

    And have someone that speaks Thai well to give you a hand because if those references are in English you are going to be paying a premium.

    [quote="aging one"] The only problem with a Burmese is that the child could end up speaking neither the mothers or the fathers native tongue. /quote]

    Are you assuming that the baby will have no contact with its father or mother ?!!

    Mustaffah,

    Of course I hope the child has maximum contact with both parents, but I can tell you I have seen an Indonisian expat who had two kids already have a third child and get a Thai nanny. The kids first language was Thai, as the mother was concentrating on the 2 other kids and their schooling, and the father was GM of Tetra Pak Thailand and left early and got home late.
    I was trying to give advice. Obviously this must be your first kid. And I still want to know if the mother is at home why do you need a nanny? My guess it the wife wants one.
    Mutant well just ahhh forget it.
