Rich kids and their expensive nannies
Parents are known to have a soft corner for their little ones, and perhaps wouldn’t think twice before taking care of their every demand. In modern days when the busy group of parents doesn’t get enough time with the kids, nannies are employed to undertake the job, and taking care of them on a daily basis, and the perks for the nannies are there too. One of the most prominent examples is that of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, whose brood of 6 kids has a personal nanny to themselves. Not only that, each of them are supposed to know at least 2 languages including the one spoken by the child who might belong to a different country, where English might not be spoken.
And, they aren’t the only odd ones out. A recent order by a Russian client in London saw a leading staffing agency receive a request for a nanny, which has $200,000 as salary with the other benefits. Though the specifics aren’t known and this nanny hasn’t been given a long list of must-haves, but will sure enjoy the luxuries like airplane travelling, preferably in business class, accommodation and food free of cost and of course, paid yearly vacations too. Research also mentions that some nannies have very specific needs, like travel in business class flights amongst others, but the parents who have the needed cash, don’t mind splurging either!
While it’s absolutely right that whoever looks after your children should be rewarded handsomely, the darker end of the issue is the attention syndrome and lack of emotional bonding with the parents, as a male nanny called ‘Nick’, says the main demand in these kids is the emotional bonding, which is missing in most cases. While super rich parents wouldn’t mind splurging, but what they do not do enough is spending a quality time with their own children, leaving them emotionally starved though materially satisfied. While the lifestyle may be good, we all can certainly draw from this by noting that no one else can replace the attention that a parent needs to give the child.
