Would you ever hire a "manny"?? Would you hire a man to take care of your children?

I personally wouldn't hire anyone to watch my children.

Well - that I can understand. Do you think you would ever consider hiring a man?

Idk, maybe but I'd have to know them personally first. Which would be the same for anyone that watches my children.

I'm a professional nanny, and if *I* didn't watch OTHER people's kids on a daily basis, I'd definately hire a manny if I found one that was great

I wouldn't have a problem with a male nanny.

It would bother me to have a male nanny... have no clue why... but it would definately bother me. Although I really don't think I'd take well to having someone else care for my kids period.

no...I really wouldn't hire anyone to watch my kids. Manny or nanny or whatever. I only trust my family, seriously. I don't think I could leave my kids with just anyone. I have issues....LOL.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

This made me think of Tony Danza in whose the boss.

No, I wouldn't get a manny, it may be different if I had both genders maybe but with my all girl household I would definetly not get a manny.

I don't want a nanny or manny, I'd take a housekeeper though.
