[ - ] It is funny how some of the SAHMs on this site talk so much about the "Jamaican nanny" and how mothers who work miss out on their children's lives and childhoods, let fail to note on the fact that their HUSBANDS apparently "don't know their children" and have "sacrificed themselves to be a corporate wage slave while they miss their children's childhoods". It's okay if he does it, right? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I suspect the "Jamaican nanny" person is a troll but yes, someone here once put it quite well, which is, They don't understand how someone can genuinely believe that it is crucial for them to be available to their child 24-7 until they are 18 years old, but if dad is around for only one afternoon a week, that will not impact the child at all.

My mother did this to me. When she remarried, she decided that we were all going on a 9-month journey around the world. She married in March of my 1st grade year, pulled me out of school and we did not return until December (of what would should have been my 2nd grade year). She was surprised when the school would not allow me to start 2nd grade in the spring term and instead made me repeat 1st grade. When I complained for years about being "held back" for no fault of my own, she said that it wasn't a big deal and laughed. She's a diagnosed narcissist and has borderline personality disorder, fwiw.
