Nanny's are a sickening trend?

Boarding schools are sickening trends?

You, sir, are easily sickened.

I think you are in danger of over-simplifying things in order to make an ill-justified point.

I went to a boarding school - but as a day pupil. I was at school (in England) with children who had been sent away to boarding school at the age of 4. From Singapore/Hong Kong/Thailand/Nigeria/etc. They didn't even see their families during the school holidays - they stayed with people in England. What sort of way is that to bring up a child?

Do you really think using a nanny is the best way to bring up a child? I accept that many people have no alternative - but is it honestly the best way of going about things?
