[Homework]2013-12-01&12-05 男保姆带孩子 须眉不让巾帼

Families are opting to hire mannies to watch their kids, and I start out first hand about all they have to offer.She's the most iconic nanny of all time.
For a school full of sugar helps the medicine go down...
But now it's time to say goodbye to Mary Poppins and say hello to manny Poppins. That's Sophere G*'s character Gloria did on a recent episode of Modern Family.
-Gloria we are back.
-Here, let me help your load.
-Who are you?
-I'm the new manny.
-Am I being replaced?
So what exactly is a manny? We went straight to the source to find out.
-A manny is essentially a male nanny, but we brought it to a new level. We call it a big brother; we call it a mentor; we call it a camp counsellor.
John Brandon is the co-founder of NYC Mannies, a New York City based guys-only nanny agency with a fleet of 50 or so mannies that he says do the job just as well as the female nanny most people are used to.
-I think guys make great characters. They can be just as caring; they can be just as good with kids, so I don't really like just to put a gender role on it.
Many moms agree, especially those with particularly active kids that benefit from a more rough and tumble approach to childcare.
-My personal preference is always young and enthusiastic and energetic, because my daughter that's what you like. When it comes to male babysitters or mannies or whatever you want to call them, they just try a little harder. It seems, you know, they just make actual effort to prove that they are awesome.
I decided to see how a manny would handle my 19-month-old son, Jake. His regular nanny Sharon was skeptical, but she handed him over to John for an afternoon at an indoor playground. The other nannies and moms raised their eyebrows at first, but then quickly came around.
-I must say he's doing a really good job, and Jake is very comfortable with him.
And Jake, well he had a great time, too.
-We say good morning, America? That was close enough.
-All got it, right?
-Yeah, pretty close. He's got a future.
-Yeah, he does. Well, actually John, the owner of NYC Mannies, told us that he became a manny because he lost his father at a very young age. He thinks it's very important that kids have positive male role models in their lives as well as starting at a young age they can bound with mannies as well as their own female nannies.
