These are unlikely Nannies
Nanny has become the catchphrase for any person hired to take care of your children. I have noticed this out in the real world LONG before I observed it on here. Let me break it down to you, it is unlikely you would have any of these listed problems with a professional nanny. There would be no argument with regard to whether or not it was okay to leave your child with a nanny who spoke no English because, a nanny who does not speak English is not a nanny. (She is a sitter and a very poor choice for a sitter at that). A professional nanny speaks English. A professional nanny is very often educated and always has previous nanny experience. Professional nannies drive and swim and tutor and dance and bake and travel with the children they take care of. They do not launder their bosses drawers or scrub their bosses toilets. A professional nanny is never, ever a housekeeper. I know many nannies who have college degrees, I know a nanny who is teaching her charge how to play the guitar, another nanny who is the only person in the home who is capable of assisting the child with his algebra homework. It isn't so much that they are being called nannies here. It bothers me that they call themselves nannies and that their bosses dare to suggest what they have hired is a nanny when in fact often she is nothing more than a glorified housekeeper. One thing, I always notice about professional nannies- they seem to really love their job and working with children. If you take the time and expend the money to hire a professional, legal nanny- you will not have these problems that I have seen on these pages. It is time for the good and great nannies to unionize and kick to the curb our lesser esteemed colleagues; those who drag us down with their angry faces and lazy ways.
