You don’t have to be watching reruns on Nick at Nite to know that The Nanny was one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, especially if you were around when it first came out in 1993. As the show follows New York City’s Fran Fine, who becomes the nanny of three children and wife to their millionaire father, countless lessons about home and family are learned, whether it’s about keeping secrets from your significant other or making time for romance even when you’re overworked and exhausted.
Here are 6 lessons about home and family I learned from The Nanny.
1) Work hard
One important lesson I learned from The Nanny is that hard work pays off. No matter how difficult things seem, if you keep working at it, you will eventually succeed. This is a valuable lesson to remember in all aspects of life, whether you’re trying to get ahead at work or fix a problem at home.
2) Listen to your kids
As a parent, it’s easy to get so wrapped up in our own lives that we forget to really listen to our kids. But, as The Nanny taught us, it’s important to take the time to listen to what they have to say. It can help you better understand them and connect with them on a deeper level. Plus, if you listen to your children, they might just learn from your wisdom. After all, you are the expert when it comes to parenting!
3) Take care of your family
The first lesson I learned from The Nanny is the importance of taking care of your family. No matter what happens, your family will always be there for you. They are the ones who will help you through tough times and celebrate your successes with you. So, it’s important to always take care of them and show them how much you appreciate them.
4) Be open to change
The first lesson I learned from the nanny is to be open to change. Sometimes, things happen that we don’t expect, and we have to be flexible in order to adapt. For example, when the family I nannied for got a new puppy, I had to help potty train him and adjust my schedule accordingly.
If I hadn’t been open to change, it would have been a lot harder to do my job well. 6) Let kids make their own decisions: One of the biggest lessons I learned from watching The Nanny was how to let kids make their own decisions.
When 8-year-old Grady wanted to play with a toy that wasn’t age appropriate, he came up with his own way of making sure he could play with it safely–and without getting into trouble. He asked his dad if he could watch cartoons while playing with the toy! It was so adorable!
5) We are all in this together
The first lesson I learned from The Nanny is that we are all in this together. No matter what our differences may be, we all have to work together to make things work. This is especially true when it comes to family. We may not always see eye to eye, but at the end of the day, we love each other and want what’s best for each other.
6) You are valued
- No matter who you are, you have value. This was a big lesson I learned from watching The Nanny. No matter how rich or poor someone is, they have value.
- You should always stand up for yourself. If someone is mistreating you, don’t just take it.
- Family is important, but so is your own happiness. Sometimes you have to put yourself first, even if it means disappointing your family.
- It’s ok to be different: I think the most important thing that the show taught me is that it’s ok to be different. Whether we’re talking about your looks, personality or beliefs, it’s ok to be different because that’s what makes us special.
- Love doesn’t know boundaries: Just because two people aren’t together anymore doesn’t mean they don’t love each other anymore. They can still care deeply about each other and want the best for them-even if they’re not together anymore
- There are many ways to make a family: Another important lesson I learned from The Nanny is that there are many ways to make a family. There’s no one way to do it and as long as everyone loves each other than anything goes!
