It is not easy to find a responsible helper nowadays. Knowing that wickedness has been increasing in the society as economic life has been decreasing, finding and keeping a helper loyal and responsible is really a hard search. Here are just some tips: * Before accepting one's application for a helper in the house, you have to fervently pray to God that you will be led to approve and accept the application of the right person whom God alone knows. * Scrutinize the person's background. If possible, get one from a family known to you or to your family and close friends. * When you have already a helper in your house, just keep a nice and warm friendship with her or him but set a limitations that will keep in her or his mind of the position. * Do not fully trust the person. Leaving a portion of reservation will still keep you safe from possible betrayal. * Keep valuables to a place not accessible to the helper. Temptation must be avoided. * Never try to hunger or thirst the helper. When the stomach is satisfied, giving up working with you will never enter into the helper's mind. * Try giving the helper some bonuses too.

The relationship should be give and take. As an employer needs the best from his or her worker. The worker also need the best from the employer in terms of good condtion of service. It is wrong to expect the best from a worker while you are at the same time paying such a worker a low wage.

well the employer must also pay the hired help on time, give them day off on holidays and weekend, help them round the house when you can. take time to get to know them and bond with them, give them increase when it is due,make them feel accepted in your home and treat them as a friend but be respected as their employer. Give them something extra on the christmas holidays, they surely would appreciate it.
