I just this week talked to my office women about her 16month old baby as she said she will send her to her Mother in her home town for two months so she can catch up on work as she has fallen behind since the baby was born.

I suggested a Nanny and she said in her words " News always say, Some lady look after baby then hit baby or give some med to baby then let baby sleep

Hmm...did you also not look down on leaving kids with the grandparents?

Do you not also support sending elders to nursing homes?

So what's wrong with the nanny?

I thought that in China, you don't trust any strangers, so how come you trust nannies and even kindergarten teachers? In China where face is paramount, what type of people do you think will apply for nanny-type jobs? Since you look down on teachers, what type of people do you think will apply for teaching jobs? When people are unhappy, do you think they will treat others well?

Yes, it happens anywhere, but it's more serious in China. I guess Chinese blood runs deep, while I do see traces in overseas Chinese, but the situation is very extreme in China. In some ways, western culture is better. So sick of the competitiveness and the face culture. Too bad you got rid of the good stuff from old China but not the bad stuff. And you adopted the bad stuff and made it 100x more extreme.

for your information: Chinese nannies cost quite a pile of monthly pay and they can be choosey.  ...

That seems a lot for China.
