Naturally we associate females with being maternal, more caring and sympathetic towards children than we associate males, mostly because of the natural maternal instinct that comes with being female. Fortunately, in the childcare industry however, families are beginning to understand and appreciate the positive influence of the ‘manny’ ‘governor’ or as some like to call him ‘hairy Poppins’ can have on their children and more and more families are welcoming the idea of hiring mannies.
Without being gender specific, but showing an understanding that often children’s entertainment activities like playing football and taking part in outdoor activities, often came about on daddy’s days off having a manny or nanny around to entertain your children outdoors and keep them away from the iPad is truly wonderful!
As more and more families are showing both parents working long and exhausting hours, perhaps it’s time to consider the role of a manny in your household?
Aged preconceptions of the manny are gone and after speaking with families who have/had mannies said that it is one of the best decisions they have made on their children’s behalf. They mentioned how wonderful it was to have a male role model, especially families with boys, that they were relaxed and often very active, and the felt secure knowing their children didn’t have to wait for one day per week to enjoy all their favourite activities. They often found that discipline and rules set out by their mannies were often adhered to very quickly.
