Helping Children Transition
I am a nanny to J. He’s 3 1/2 and his parents are putting him in full time care because I am no longer able to care for him. I’m moving and won’t be able to do the commute, it’s just too far. I’ve been with J since he was 4 months old and we spend all day together. I try to explain to him that he is going to school and I’m leaving... but he doesn’t seem to grasp it. I’m hoping he transitions easily because it’ll be such a different environment for him. Any nannys out there with advice? I have FANTASTIC bosses that are absolutely generous as well. We are having lunch on my last day. I got J a backpack and lunch box for when he starts school. My heart is broken and I’m sad. It’s bitter sweet but I need to move on to the next chapter of my life.
