  • Yaya Fashion: Setting The Rules for Proper Yaya Attire

    If you feel yaya’s not properly dressed when looking after your child, then read this article on how to address this issue.

    If you find yourself faced with this realization, do not fret. It’s really not all that serious a predicament. If you don’t require your staff to wear a uniform and sometimes require them to be out on errands, propriety when it comes to dressing may be something you just need to settle with her. Set down the rules and explain your reasons.

    However, before all else, please keep in mind that tactfulness and compassion is always important. You don’t want yaya to feel inadequate in any way. Hence, it is vital to point out that the attire is the issue not the person.

    In this regard, you may have several concerns and as such, it would be best to ask yourself the following:
    a. Is it a color-coordination issue?
    b. Is it a modesty issue?
    c. Is it a hygiene issue?
    d. Is it an image issue?

    Once, you distill your real concern to the core --- make certain that you explain how important first impressions are and how they can affect the way people think. Remind her that no matter where she is, she remains always a “representative” of your household and indirectly of you. Similarly, if she doesn’t dress appropriately, people may think badly of both her and your household. Explain that at the very minimum, cleanliness, order and neatness are non-negotiables. Ask her to think about this… if the tables were turned and she met someone on the street who was dressed like she was, what would she think of that person? Would she be impressed? Would she be disappointed? This should help clarify things.
