    I need to get a new DH urgently who specializes in toddler care

    My new maid is just not as professional in taking care a toddler even though she worked in Singapore and Malaysia for over 4 years with child taking care experience. My baby is now 2 years 4 months old. I need an urgent maid replacement. Can anyone help me here? My husband and I work for long hours and we both want to have a good sleep on Sunday's morning so we are looking for a DH who can work all year long, that is , even on Sunday and public holiday.

    You are going to need two helpers. It is illegal to not give holidays. And not very nice either!

    you work long hours and want a break... don't you think a helper deserves the same? maybe this is why your current helper is not up to par. she hasn't had a break!!!!!

    what you want is completely illegal, not to mention immoral. helpers are here to help make your life easier, not to be a slave!

    Hmmmm - specialising in toddler care.Short of being a pediatrician or a nurse, or a child psychologist, you're basically looking for what is called PARENTING.
    Look into it.

    jlee,

    It would be hard to find someone who wants (or has the energy) to work the whole year round. You might want to consider hiring 2 or 1 full-time + 1 part-time helper.

    Thanks for the notice.
    Actually, my old maid, who will go back to indonesia in a week time is perfect in all areas. We are 95% satisfied with her but she needs to go back and get married. The new maid, who just on board for a few days, is simply rough in all areas. She is not enthusiastic, rude, not concentrate enough, just sitting aside and watch my child instead of playing with him. She sweats a lot and so smelly too. She can't even bath my child and get him wear the clothes after bathing. I just don't feel comfortable leaving my child alone with her. My child is 2 years and 4 months old and he is naughty. So safety is my most concern, even at home, with such a careless DH/

    when you decided to have a child, did you also think of taking care of it in person? i'm not talking about financing DHs, buying toys, arranging tutoring lessons and other activities, i mean really personally spending time with him/her... understand that you need to rest (we all do), but sorry to say that you must sacrifice YOUR time for your baby - yes, even on sunday mornings.

    i have a son that is exactly the same age. however, i do NOT allow him to behave naughtily. if he starts, he gets 3 warnings and then it's either to his room, go home or take away a toy (depending on the situation). i must say that he is EXTREMELY well behaved 95% of the time.

    YOU need to discipline your child and teach him the proper way to behave. that's THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB YOU WILL EVER DO!

    do NOT leave it to a helper to raise your child. it is YOUR RESPONSIBLITY to instill proper values in your child.

    and i must say... not giving someone a day of rest is beyond illegal. it is inhuman and NOT what i'd want MY child learning. your child should take his cues from YOU when it comes to the treatment of others.
