[Wanted Tibetan Nannies: New York parents seek status, supposed Buddhist calming influence]
Cliff Greenhouse discusses the increase in demands for Tibetan nannies and the differences between the cultural/educational need and those seeking Tibetan nannies to keep up with NYC trends. Cliff Greenhouse is quoted “…he can only field requests for nannies from a specific ethnic group if there is ‘a bona fide educational reason.’ … ‘We’re seeing this more and more. It’s a result of the growing number of extremely wealthy families who can afford to seek out and employ someone to teach their children a language. And as the pool of Tibetans doing household work grows, then people are starting to request them as nannies more. People love the Tibetans.'”
