First, without knowing what really happened to your son I can't say...but those rashes could be from anything....If you have an uneasy feeling about her - get rid of her. You may feel bad taking away her income but she can always find more work. You are better off going with your gut and protecting your son then worrying if she has enough money. Trust your inner instincts...I would hate to see you regret it later. I wish you lots of luck!!!!

Hi friend I think you have to talk with you son first and ask him where he got it and who did it to him those things coz it might be cause by playing or what. Reporting not on time is a bad habit you are paying the right compensation and you get less service. If you think that she add you a stress then its up to you to decide. I suggest that you get a male nanny, if you want to get male nanny friend I am available..... Hahaha joke, actually I am looking that kind of job related to my course I am nursing assistant grad. So much for that, you need to talk with her whaterver decision you will have on mind ok. Just be franck to her and approach her in a nice way I know she will understand..

Ugh, as a young nanny, that is embarrassing. That's really rude and irresponsible, and I would never DREAM of doing that. *que grumbling*

Kids do get rashes and it doesn't mean that the nanny was the cause for it. If this is the only thing that has happened between your child and nanny, then I would just talk to her about how she thinks he got the rash and then make a judgment call from that. Maybe give her another chance, because people do mess up. But if she keeps messing up and not fallowing rules, then let her know you will be letting her go if it keeps up.
