Create Your Own Preferences: The Ideal Helper
The helper will be living with you and your family in the same house so it is important that you know from the very beginning how well the helper’s behavior and characteristics are. There is nothing wrong with being cautious when it comes to the welfare of your family and order of your home. It is suitable for you to make a list of your preferences on what characteristics your future helper should have.
Age - You need to consider first the quality you want your helper to have. If you want a helper who is jolly, energetic and can give entertainment to your family, you can find a younger helper. On the other hand, if you want to have an organize and mature helper, you can choose older and experienced helper. But you have to make sure that your preferences are balanced when it comes to their age because not all young helpers are industrious, and not all old helpers are mature and orderly enough.
At times, choosing a helper in terms of their age is not really the thing. It’s the experience you need to consider the most. If you are looking for a helper to take care of your child, you need to find someone who has experience with children, patient, and kind who can treat and love your child as their own.
Location – One of the factors you need to consider is from what country your helper came from and where is the specific place your helper grew up. If you are going to hire a Filipino helper you need to find someone who grew up in the province because they are the one who knows how to cook good and quality cuisines. Those who live in the city is more knowledgeable when it comes to machines and technologies, it is best for you to choose them when you want someone to do the household chores.
Clearance Papers – Ensure that the helper has their updated clearance papers. The clearance papers are consisting of NBI Clearance, Police Clearance, Medical Certificate and Birth Certificate. This is to make sure that the helper will not burden you hereafter.
One of the best aspects of having a satisfactory experience with your helper is to start emphasizing prevention than the cure itself. But then, besides prevention, you also need to learn to deal with the dilemma after they occur.
