Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Beverly Hills Nannies features professional childcare providers competing for jobs with rich/famous Southern California clients. Both the employers and the nannies can be pretty catty and/or obnoxiously superficial. Expect lots of drinking (during social events and over meals) and some sexual references (including discussions about infidelity and sexual harassment). The nannies love to name drop, and designer brands like Gucci, Hermes, and others are discussed and/or visible.
Is It Any Good?
Beverly Hills Nannies offers a voyeuristic look into the world of the high-end childcare provider, in which they must compete with each other for jobs that include perks like new cars, working at beach-side properties, and salaries of up to $40 an hour. It also shows that while some folks expect their nannies to legitimately assist them with their children in a positive way, others seem to think that their nannies or mannies are personal slaves who should be at their beck and call.
Viewers get to hear some of the gossipy comments that employers make about their childcare providers, which usually aren't very favorable. Meanwhile, the nannies engage in lots of catty behavior, and on occasion look for ways to sabotage one another. Fans of these sorts of shows will enjoy the reality drama, but it doesn't send the best messages to (or about) families and the people who work for them.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
