- Putting their love for the children above and beyond their own personal needs.Nannies love children and fall in love with the children in their care. You can almost consider this an occupational hazard. I will be the first to admit that I can’t imagine loving my own child more than I love the children that I nanny, but most nannies who become parents will tell you that they do. You can love a child you take care of as long as you remember that this is not your child. This will never be your child and no matter how long you stay, this child is going to grow up whether you are there or not. You are not the parent.
