Mothers do best, so why the nannies?
Why is it that people have the option to hire nannies to raise their children? It is wrong on so many levels.
In the majority of cases the nannies are from a different culture, background and religion to the employers. Why doesn’t that concern the parents? What on earth possesses people to leave their children in the care of strangers?
Recently there was a case of a maid accused of sexually assaulting a one-year-old boy in her care. There is no reason for anyone to leave their child in the care of a stranger. Especially those who go out to coffee shops and malls while their children are being looked after by maids. I am not attacking maids, not the good ones anyway who do try their best. These children who are being raised by the nannies are our future generations.
Even ‘working’ mothers who leave their kids under the supervision of nannies should not do so. If they need the income then better not to have children they can’t afford to support. Otherwise they should wait till their children are in school during the day and work part-time.
Ban nannies for the safety of children and the integrity of our future generations.
