What is the best way to approach the employer of a nanny that is your neighbor? This woman lives in the associated building next door. Her son and my son know each other from school and recognize each other at the park. My son is excited to play with him, but her son has very poor impulse control and no direct supervision. The boys are both three years old. The nanny is always talking to other nannies, not even looking in the direction of the children or playground. This puts me in the position of having to redirect the hitting child or removed my son from playing with him with very firm reasoning. "You are not playing with a child who continues to hit/spit/kick (take your pick) you." I could simply do this but many people try to keep their child away from him, some complain to the nanny. The nanny always looks at them like they are nuts and says, "they are children, they are playing, he don't like it, play somewhere else". As a formerly working mother, this really troubles me, because her child is getting a bad reputation and learning some very bad habits. It wouldn't take much at all to supervise the children a little closer. There is a nanny there who supervises two twins who seem to be four. One has a little more freedom and the other she sticks to because he, despite knowing better, will put anything in his mouth. Because of her presence, she is there to redirect him, even give him a look or remove him from the situation. It isn't rocket science. What it comes down to is I think the 3 year old has a piss poor nanny. The regard she shows him in public is troubling enough, I can't imagine what happens behind closed doors. I don't know this woman, she is merely a very casual acquaintance that I met through a preschool function and have since then waved a polite hello to.I'm not looking to become a friend, or an enemy.. but for the sake of the child I feel I need to approach her about it. I just don't know how.
