The world has been watching the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's journey into parenthood and eagerly awaiting to find out what kind of Nanny they would hire for their first born, the 3rd in line to the throne, born in the land of the Nannies to a family whom have hired Nannies for generations.

Five years ago, on a Saturday afternoon, I received a call from a NYC Mom of infant twins in tears. She has been on maternity leave for 18 months working with her Nanny looking after her twin girls who were born prematurely, only to have her suddenly leave the day she went back to work. The Mom said she cannot afford to take more time off and need a Nanny to start on Monday. I thought of two applicants for her right ...Read Full Post »

When I was 5 years old, and my sister 3 and my brother just 1, BOTH my parents moved to England, UK, leaving us in Sri Lanka with relatives and Nannies.

It is a gross misrepresentation of facts to claim an individual can be checked out ONLINE!

At a recent cocktail party for parents of my 6 year old twins, a Dad of two sons, explained how different his two sons are. He said the environment has remained the same when the younger son was born and both boys live with both parents and nothing has changed in their approach to parenting with the second son, but he said they are as different as light and day. So, I asked him, how does he explain the differences and he said 'Nature and Nurture'. I also shared with him that I am tryin...Read Full Post »
