When a we reported on a nanny-behaving-badly, earlier this week, our commenters were divided over who to spank – the gold-toothed nanny or the parents. What to do? NJ.com picks up our story…and the debate:
The first person to comment on the post disparaged the nanny for her dental work (she was probably going to “meet her pimp,” they wrote).
Others complained about “undocumented” immigrants who have no training in child care (although there were a few foreign-nanny defenders).
But the greatest outrage was reserved for parents, especially moms, who care more about material possessions than spending time with kids:
Sell the damn house in Glen Ridge or Montclair that you really cannot afford, and dump that Nazi-brand car for a less expensive car and let “Mom” quit work, and stay home and protect her most important treasure, her daughter, whom is really (or should be) THE most important asset in her life, before something terrible happens, and…..of course, the “Mom” will blame everyone BUT the woman in the mirror.
The witness to the Monclair nanny-negligance also posted a report on isawyournanny.blogspot.com, a site devoted to spying on nannies. Here, you can find attacks on working moms, along with stories of defensive, overworked nannies and a few good-nanny sightings.
I’m just wondering, why stop at nannies? Why not a site called isawyourmommy (one nanny tried; looks like it never got off the ground). What about “isawyourdaddy” or “isawyourteacher” or “isawyourbabysitter” or ”isawyourdogwalker”?
So tell us, Is outing bad behavior being taken to the extreme or is it a good thing?
