Which do you prefer the most? Take care of your own kid or get a nanny. I say take care of your own kid, that is if you are not working and you own your own time. This is better than getting a nanny. 1st, you need not pay for a nanny, 2nd, your hubby will love and admire you, 3rd, your kids will grow closer to you and 4th, you get to demand from your hubby. The latter is the best part really. So, which is it? A mom or a nanny for your kid???

I prefer to raise my own kids. I do not like the idea of someone else taking care of my kids. This may be fine for some parents, but I personally don't care for it.

You are absolutely right. It is always better to take care of your own kids than having a nanny. Nannies sometimes are so abusive, I even heard of kidnappings by nannies... very common here in the Philippines.

can you imagine having a nanny like this ??????? - can you imagine having a nanny like this??????
For the most part I perfer to raise my own child. No point getting a nanny when I am home and off work. If when I do go back to work I might consider getting a nanny. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Sometimes nannies are needed. You never know what the world holds for you.

I totally agree with you. Just look for a nanny that is responsible and with good background. It will be best if you knew the nanny say for example, a relative of yours.. they are easier to get along with and really will take care of your kid.
