Don't Impose laws can have serious consequences for both parents. When a parent wants to nanny to watch their children and a nanny refuses, this often leads to an argument or even legal action. Unfortunately it is not always the nanny's fault, but it happens more often than you might think. So, parents need to be aware of Don't Impose laws and how they affect the nanny and the children involved. https://img.huffingtonpost.com/asset/5cd577252000005b0097670a.jpeg?ops=scalefit_720_noupscale (https://img.huffingtonpost.com/asset/5cd577252000005b0097670a.jpeg?ops=scalefit_720_noupscale) First of all, it is important to understand the legal ramifications of refusing to hire a nanny provider. In most states it is illegal to refuse to allow someone to be hired due to their religious beliefs or background. It is also illegal to refuse to hire someone because they are illegally present in the United States. Many nannies have entered the country illegally, and are either here on guest visa, work permit or on a visa under the Visa Waiver Program. In some cases, illegal immigrants may bring dangerous criminals with them who may harm the children who are being cared for. Nannies tend to be highly educated, professional people. They make good parents because they provide love, compassion, help and education to the children they are responsible for. They do not abuse their position of authority to take advantage of the children. On the other hand, nannies may not be the ideal adults to raise the children. There are many common arguments against hiring nannies, and it is not limited to finances. The children are also being forced into a very different culture from that of their parents. Many nannies are from foreign countries, cultures which may not be as accepting of the children. This can cause negative emotional and social experiences for the children. In addition, most of the children will be spending considerable amounts of time away from home, which can lead to emotional issues and behavioral problems. Another reason parents should not impose nannies on their children is the fact that sometimes they need to spend a great deal of money and resources to pay the nannies. This can create a very difficult situation for the parents and for the children if the parents have to choose between their basic needs and the financial needs of their child. This is especially true if one of the parents is unable to work. It is also not likely that nannies will be working under conditions which are conducive to a good working environment. The rules and policies of the nanny agency must also be considered. For example, some require that nannies have a high school diploma or an equivalent. Some may even insist on background checks, drug tests and written guarantees from the parents that they will not let the nanny return to the home while the nanny is working. A final consideration that parents should consider is the impact on the children's lives. Obviously the most obvious impact is the impact on the children themselves. If the nanny refuses to work, the children will suffer. But the effects can extend well beyond the immediate families. The children who are forced to live in a house with strangers for weeks or months at a time will miss out on many vital opportunities to build new relationships. They will also miss out on the normal family life, which is what all children need in order to grow up properly. The best solution for parents who do not want to impose their choice on nannies is to inform them in advance of the arrangements that they have made. The arrangement may be either temporary or permanent. In the case of temporary arrangements, the nanny may decide to go and work somewhere else temporarily until the permanent arrangement has been set up. The parents can then make plans for the nanny during this period. This will prevent any unpleasant surprises when the permanent arrangement has been set up.
