But, is it good to have someone else raise your kid because you're too occupied to do so yourself?
As far as my upbringing goes, I came up in a two parent household and they were the predominant authoratative figures in my life. My dad worked days and my mom worked nights. So, one of them was always around to make sure I received the "home training" I needed to be a responsible adult. The closest I had to a nanny was my grandmother. She would babysit me when my mom had to go into work early for overtime. Although she wasn't a parent, she was still a relative. Someone who would always be in my life.
Nannies aren't always permanent. Sure, you have some familes who treat their nanny as part of the family, but how often does that happen? How often are nannies fired for stealing, sleeping with the husband/wife or for just being bad at the job?
What happens when the child gets attached to the nanny and she quits or gets fired?
What is the child's relationship with the nanny? Do they view her as a mother or as an older relative?
Some richer people have a nanny for each child, so how do those relationships work?
