A girls school seems so old fashioned to me.

That was my understanding as well. Eugenie, I read somewhere, was big on sports so opted for Marlborough because it had a concentration on sports.

In the area where I teach we have quite a few schools and about half are single sex ones, with a preponderance of all girls over all boys. These single sex schools will include government run as well as private ones and often the single sex schools are near the partner one e.g. one all girls school is across the road from its brother school but the two schools are completely independent of each other.

A nanny does all the dirty work. When they are babes, they change the nappies, feed them (if using a bottle), dress them, wash them etc.

Do single sex schools give a warped view of the world? When these children leave school they will have to learn ALL OVER AGAIN how to mix with different types of people.

A nanny is a surogate mother. That is a HORRIBLE way to raise children.

No they don't - the schools are aware of the need for socialising with the other sex (these are the 'different types of people' I assume you are referring to). They don't have classes with the opposite sex (we also have quite a few boys only schools here).

Remember that William and Harry went to all boys schools and they don't seem to have any trouble mixing with girls do they?

Many wealthy people employ someone to help raise the children, particularly if they parents have really busy lives e.g. the Queen and other politicians.

At least the children have a constant figure in their lives, even if it isn't their parents. Children need to have someone there all the time for them - and a nanny, or a teacher or carer at a daycare centre can fill that role.

I see no difference between having a nanny and sending students to day care at age 3 months for up to 10 hours a day as many parents do.

That is very true, thank you for showing me a different perspective on nannies.

Actually, I wish that I had a nanny because they can become a best friend and someone that takes them to special places when mom or dad can't.

Neither I nor any of my children seem to think so, I had a nanny, they had a nanny and now have nannies themselves. We all think it leaves the parents free to enjoy spending time together.

I personally will never have a nanny for my future children. On christmas morning I wouldn't want my children to run to their nanny's room wishing her or him a happy christmas instead of me.

We open our presents on the 24th, so we all get to see the excitement then, but if you want to be woken at 5 in the morning by over excited children, you are most welcome!

Let me get this straight, in England, you have a nanny to help with your children when they are very young, then you place them in boarding school at the age of 7 to 18, only seeing them on holidays, then at 18 they are all grown up, having spent ALL of there lives with nannies or at boarding schools.

Children know who their parents are and how much they are loved. There are parents who employ a nanny that spend a lot of quality time with their children and parents who don't that plop their kids in front of a television and ignore them. Your domestic help does not define your fitness as a parent.

For those so who are so against nannies, daycares, and/or boarding schools. Do you not send your kids to school for 7hours day, plus they have after school activities, homework, and supper. That leaves what maybe 3 hours before they go to bed. Is that quality time?

You are so right about that.

If the parents have to work and need extra help, then a nanny is a whole lot better than a daycare center--in daycare there are so many children, they often do not receive any one-on-one time, whereas a nanny can provide a child with one-on-one time, extra help, and provide a sense of stability and security. I have never had my child in daycare, but I have employed the same sitter for almost five years now and she watches my son, Sterling, at least three times per week (twice during the weekday for four hours per day and once on the weekend for various times). Now that I am in graduate school, the time that Sterling spends with her will be increased, but he has a warm relationship with her and I wouldn't have it any other way.
