Tactical Nanny: Security Guard and Nanny in One
Julia Marsh of The New York Post interviewed Jonathan Gilliam, a former Navy SEAL, who is developing a new nanny agency, Tactical Nanny, offering female military veterans as caregivers. Gilliam came up with the idea, according to the Post, after the horrific slaying of two children in the Upper West side of Manhattan last year allegedly by their nanny.
Gilliam told the Post the former military women being recruited for Tactical Nanny are already trained to protect people and in crisis management. They’ll even come armed if that’s what their client wants.
In the Post he says the military veteran nannies can keep tragedy from happening. The service costs at least $1,500 a week, or about $30.75 a hour, reports the Post.
When asked about mental illness in veterans, in the report below from Pix 11, Gilliam says his program will screen the veterans for post traumatic stress syndrome. Pix 11 explains Tactical Nanny is just a test program right now with just a few military veteran nannies signed on.
Do you think providing female military veterans as caregivers will give parents a peace of mind?
