A nanny has been advertised to bring up kids in a gender-neutral way
According to the parents, previous nannies tried to influence the children, who are aged six and two, to choose a specific gender and so they were fired.
One of the rules the nanny must adhere to is to only refer to children by their names and “no pet names such as sweetie or hun and obviously no referring to them as ‘she’ or ‘he’”.

The family has requested a trial shift so they can judge the potential nanny and see how they are with their children.
The role includes picking the children up from school each day and spending time with them until the parents return at 6pm.
“Characters like Action Man and Barbie only serve to enforce gender stereotypes, for example.”
The parents added: “We are willing to pay well for the right person who can accept the way we bring up our children”.
The parents do not want any gender stereotypes enforced
“Society as a whole has become more accepting and it’s important that child carers respect the parent’s style of parenting, regardless of their own beliefs or opinions.
“As the UK’s largest childcare site though, we thought we’d support one of our community, so if anyone out there likes the sound of this family and is happy with the job spec, please apply!”
