Inside America's Families: New Data From Nannies4Hire.com Bucks Children's Health National Trend
Date:9/22/2008

OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In a national survey of 6,177 nannies and babysitters, Nannies4Hire.com and Babysitters4Hire.com report some new facts about the state of America's children. Parents' inconsistency with rules may be leading to out of control kids but families with nannies may be healthier and happier. The survey reports that overweight children and obesity rates are less than the national averages, children spend less time in front of TV's and more time outside. Children with nannies are also eating a healthier diet. Having a Nanny during a child's development years may be an asset for life.

"A Nanny's focus is on the well being of the children in their care, so I was not surprised to see that America's nannies are committed to their families and children," states Candi Wingate, President of Nannies4Hire.com and Babysitters4Hire.com. "I was surprised that we may not be taking care of our nannies as well as we could. With over 2611 responses from full time nannies, 86.1% (1711) reported having no employer paid health insurance, 95.7% (1827) reported no retirement plan and 51.7% (1043) have no paid sick days," reports Candi, author of 100 Tips For Families and Nannies.

America's children who have a nanny are doing well, according to the report of their caregivers.

a. Well adjusted 91.4% (3045)

b. Well cared for by

family 95.1% (3177)
