Anyone has a maid at home?
 
How do U treat your maid? Fierce? Friendly? Firm and strict?
Do you draw a line between employer and maid?

I treat her in a friendly manner but of coz there is a boundary. I let her know my expectations on her first day of work and she has been following it since.

Mine usually from Philippines. Though for my second boy, when born , I had Myanmese and later Indonesian maid. But babies safer to let grandparents supervise maid if u r not around.

My first time experience with maid is not good.

Where is your maid from? Get those fresh ones with no prior working experience, easier to train from start. Experienced maids have tricks up their sleeves or may have attitude problem.

Indo.
Fresh ones also have difficult training them up.

Nowadays maid is not like last time. They know their rights and if they feel not happy staying in your house, they will request to change employer. But u as an employer, u only have 4 chances to change maid. Exceed the limit, MOM will invite u for coffee... :s22:

Food must give, they also humans, they come to work is cos they no choice.. who dun wan to be at own home shake leg...

treat them as family, auntie or friend.
Mine is older den me.

Let them know your lifestyle, sometimes close 1 eye..
I eat what, they eat what...
*Before you eat, take a portion for her, NOT ASK HER eat left-over.

Once a while, call home ask her if she need supper, if wife go out, bring her go shopping, walk walk.. den get back b4 the kids get home..

Treating them good also hv to see if its worth it or not. some are knn al:s13:so..
I have 1 b4, can like eat till no tomorrow..come SG like sightseeing..

Languages needs time to learn one. Imagine asking u to learn another foreign language now, also need time.
Just start by teaching simple words and repeat them daily.

I agree. I treat her like part of family, but a line must be drawn..
