Employee: Often governesses are being partly cooked and cleaned up after. If employers provide meals and you use the facilities within their house then please help keep it tidy. If you see a job, then please do it. (I.E. wiping table or benches, putting away food, dishes) In any living environment everyone need to do their part.Employers: If the governess has their own cottage or room, give them privacy. Make sure the kids are not over their place on the weekend or after school unless invited. Don’t expect the governess to be constantly doing your jobs as parents.
