How much should you expect your nanny to play with your 6 mo old?
My nanny gives my son only about 30 min to 1 hr a day of real one on one play time, and 30 min to an hour of play but with a phone or tv on (very distracted). The rest of the time is solo play, feeding (with no interaction like singing, reading, or talking) typically with the tv on, changing diapers, going for a walk or he's sleeping. We don't ask her to do anything else throughout her 8-10 hr day. Is this abnormal or should we expect more? Even her one on one play doesnt seem very energetic or really involved and she doesn't seem , to be practicing any real skills with him. We do have cameras in the house which she is aware of, which makes it seem to me that she thinks she is doing enough in her eyes. What should we be expecting of her? Note we pay her $19 an hour which seems to be average for our area.
