So back in 2009 this was my first post as a writer/nanny exploring the world of childcare …
“Nanny Time Bomb signing in.
Inspired by Julie & Julia I begin a blog unsure as to where this will lead. In conjunction withTwitter and Facebook, I attempt to make a voice heard in a wilderness of endless debate.
My experiences as a Nanny are based exclusively in Manhattan, New York City and in real time. The opening chapter of my book “The Nanny Time Bomb” can be found (reading from first tweet to latest tweet) on my twitter profile:THENANNYTIMEBOMB. The point of the book is this:
Today in 2009 children are suffering.
If they’re suffering in Manhattan you can be sure they are suffering through-out the world where parents have to outsource the care of their children.
To be clear in my intentions my work is not an attack on working parents or childcare workers. It’s a criticism of a system – the system of economics and of a culture – that fails our children in their first years of life. Therefore modern childcare must be reformed. I endeavor to be a part of the movement for childcare reform.”
Yes I was pretty passionate back then. I still am. But 10 years on I’m also a bit wiser. There are no bad guys here just an industry that could use some reform. From here on in I want to connect with you – on your side of the fence where-ever that is. I want to share what I have learned and the wisdom of others. Ours is a community of hard-working people who care about children. I hope you stick around for the next phase of my journey from a working nanny to a full-time writer and the CEO of a New Parent info hub called www.babydoesnyc.com.
