HOT TOPIC: WHAT DOES A NANNY SAY ABOUT PARENTING SKILLS?
Is a nanny necessary? Does the presence or absence of a sitter speak volumes of a mother’s ability to nurture her child? These were the questions that Reagan Gomez-Preston tackled in her latest Vlog entitled, ‘Let’s Talk About Nannies.’
The actress opened the session up by thanking her fans for subscribing to her channel, and then jumped right into the controversial stuff. “I think there’s a negative misconception when it comes to nannies,” said Reagan. “As soon as people hear the word ‘Nanny’ they just automatically assume that the nanny is raising the kids and mom must not be a good mom because, God forbid, she has someone on the payroll helping her…’Cause you know moms are suppose to be able to do it all. We don’t need no help.”
Gomez-Preston added, “I have a few celebrity girlfriends who have nannies and for me, the role of a nanny is just about help. Help, that’s all it’s about.” Reagan made it clear that she and her husband neither have nor need a nanny right now but would have no problem hiring extra help in the near future.
Many have coined parents with nannies as individuals trying to pawn their children off on someone else. Do you agree with such opinions or do you, like Reagan, view nannies as extra help to parents who are working hard to give their kids the better things in life? Would you hire a nanny?
