Nannies are usually females. However, what if there were no female nannies available, would you use a male? If yes, under what circumstance?

If I was to have a nanny, I wouldn't let the sex of applicants become a determining factor. If my husband and I took a liking to them and they were qualified - and if their references checked out, I imagine we'd hire them.

I really prefer an older mature woman to take care of my children. I would probably leave them with a male relative but not a stranger who I hire.

I don't have kids, but if I had a son, then I'd be happy to have a male nanny. If I had a daughter, probably less so, because I wouldn't feel as comfortable with them doing bathroom or bath duty.
If I was going to have a nanny I suppose I would have a male nanny if he was qualified and the kids liked him. It would depend on references and stuff. But I'd rather not leave my kids with someone else all the time like that anyway.
I would prefer female nannies.
I think it would come down to whether I felt a connection with them, whether the kids connected with them, whether they are qualified, references etc. I recently advertised for a "helper" around the house (nanny / housekeeping) and while I would have been surprised if a male had responded to the add I would still have interviewed them and checked references etc
Sure, if he could do a good job of it I would.
I would be more comfortable employing a mature female for that position.
No. It is an unnecessary risk in 2014.
No way.
