Below are the Tips to live peacefully with housekeepers
Give them Space: when you have one housekeeper at home either house boy or house girl, learn to give them space to think on their own and do not over monitor them. For God`s sake, they are human too and need to be understood. Remember this will save you from frequent fights and disagreement with them.
Set your Boundaries: Draw the line within your home and no one should surpass them. Remember this is to improve the respect between you and them. For example, do not set free your house managers in your bedroom. Your bedroom is your home office where most secrets are kept. In short, get the message home.
Emotions: Learn how to read your housekeeper's emotions and when they react when they're upset or calm. This will help you to sense when there's danger or not.
Trust Issues: when you have trust issues with your housekeepers, do not leave your young ones in their care. In the short look for other options.
Discipline: anytime you want to correct your house managers over an issue, kindly do it out of your Children`s sight. This is to avoid degrading them in front of your children because when you do that, your children might fail to respect them again and that can result in hatred and later conflict.
