In past years, I would occasionally babysit for another family on weekends. And because it was a weekend, the parents would offer me wine and beer. While I appreciate the fact that they felt comfortable with me having a glass of wine, I always felt that it was inappropriate. I was working so therefore, why would I drink? If I wanted to drink, I wouldn't have been babysitting and instead, I would be getting trashed on Washington Street.
I know that parents drink, but the point is, parents CAN drink because it's their kids. Also, why would I risk having a drink on the job? I mean, can you imagine if there was a Nanny Cam? Do you even realize what a parent can do with that video? I can see the headlines now "Babysitter drinking on the job!"
Yes, just what I need.
Nannies, have you ever been offered alcohol on the job? Did you drink it?
