I start a new nanny job on Monday. Three boys, ages 8, 6, and 1. The older boys both have a hard time listening or paying attention. I have my week planned and the activities we'll do, MB says art projects and outings hold their attention and they will be into it. I'm not sure how to gain the boys' respect though, I really want the boys' to like me and look forward to me coming over. But I also need to look forward to watching them. What are phrases to get them to pay attention? Stop doing something inappropriate?
