In a high society world of rich and famous most mothers let their newly born babies being taken cared by their nannies all the time. Is it proper?

I don't know if it's proper or not but I don't think anyone should have kids that can't be with them most of the time. Being raised by a nanny is so useless for the parents. Why do they even want a child when they don't get to do anything with the child..the nanny does it all, They usually are the ones who see the first step, hear the first word and are the ones that the child runs to when they need something. All this is everything I think you have a child see their first steps, hear their first words and be the one they run to. I think these people are selfish..they just want a child so they can show it off and say, "see what I did?"

well its easy to say something because you are not in their shoes. im a band singer and i am a single mom, sometimes my band travels out of the country for a six months contract and im a single mom. i have no choice but to leave my kids behind with a nanny but in the supervise of my mom. but now that i am no longer that active in the band i am a hands on mom. what i am trying to sya here is it isnt easy to leave kids behind, but i need to do it to give them a good life.

I've always believed mothers, not matter how famous, should be the ones to care for their newborn child. Children are not like stuffed animals or plastic dolls where you can just place with anyone. Newborn kids, need to bond with there mother and the mother with them, otherwise why even have a child? The rich and famous who do, should at least take time out to care for their little one, eventually they will get back to their work, they just need time off. There is nothing wrong with a celebrity taking time off to bond with their baby. It only seems right. The nanny should come later on, although it can be dangerous, this is why one, including celebrities should always do a background check on the nanny. Keep cameras in the home, just to be safe and to know how that nanny cares for their kids.
