My Nanny's Ramadan Fast

My Nanny's Ramadan Fast

by Christie Tate

Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims, is under way, which means my nanny will fast from dawn to sunset every day. And that fasting means no food or water during the hours she will be watching my children. This is our third Ramadan as her employers and just like the previous two years, I feel a pit of fear in my stomach, worrying about her health and that of my children as she cares for them while the temperatures soar.

I know how this will go. For the remainder of the holy month, I will keep my phone closer than normal when I am at work. I will worry that she will pass out from dehydration while leading my 2- and 3-year-old children across the street. I will think about how light-headed and unable to focus I become when I go hours without eating or drinking water in the sunshine. Then I start picturing specific scenarios where she doesn’t watch them closely enough at the pool. Or maybe she’ll space out while my daughter rides her bike with her wobbly legs and her inexpert command of the brakes.

Your kids may be in danger, but at least you feel good about yourself.

no one is going to die of starvation or from thirst in 12-14 hrs.....these muslims do this in hot, arid countries and we don't read about them dying like flies....

if this woman trusts this nanny with her two small children otherwise, and apparently she does since she's had her as a nanny for yrs, then what is her big beef?...just another "look at me" and my "big" problems lib...

I’d worry less about her fast and more about the possibility of her killing the little infidels with a kitchen knife.

Religion aside - going without food or drink (as long as you are in good health)during the day is not that much of a big deal - as long as you’re not exertinh yourself too much.

And Islam allows people in critical jobs to eat and drink if they have to during the day - which Muslims will never bring up to infidels.

BINGO! Imagine how “progressive” they feel when they talk about their MUSLIM nanny at work and at cocktail parties. What morons...

This woman is some kinda nut.

Does the Muslim woman wear a Burka? How Muslim is she ? the Hijab or any of that other crap? Does she pray 5 times a day?’’Find yourself a new Nanny.

The bimbo mom didn't say she was Arabic...only Muslim. Maybe the nanny is from Chechnya.

Dear Christie,

Why the f--- did you hire a Muslim to take care of your children? Were there no Westboro Baptist Church members available? Or are you just an idiot? I mean, let me get this straight: You are spending your own money in a way that makes you sick with worry. You think it's selfish of you to pick which parts of her religion the woman you hired brings around your children in your own house. These are your children we're talking about, right? Have you perhaps experienced some sort of head trauma at some point in your life?

Sincerely,
Everyone

a person who doesn’t like the actual burden of having to choose something and live with it in peace, if a watchful peace, i fear. so instead she just writes an open ended, worried screed. confess it, this sort of worry-warrior gets under our skin sometimes doesn’t it, and it speaks to our weakness too that it does.

Frankly, if I needed a nanny, I’d rather they learn Spanish.

Don’t listen to these mean people. This isn’t about the nanny or your children, it’s all about you. How you feel and how you want other people to feel about you.

Not only are they being raised by a Muslim, their mother is a drama queen.

'Taint so much Ramadan you have to worry about. But if the nanny wants to celebrate Ashura [don't click if you're sqeamish] with your kids you have serious, serious trouble on your hands.

She should be concerned as during the hot summer her nanny could be very easy to get dehydrated or electrolyte depleted when you are not eating or drinking during the day. This could easily lead to impaired judgement, cardiac irregularities and even fainting and I especially hope the nanny is not driving kids in the car. Bad enough she is taking care of your kids but could you imagine having an employee doing this fast in a dangerous environment like a hot warehouse or a steel mill or while driving a bus or even piloting an airplane. The fast may have been no problem when the most serious effect might be falling off your camel, but in today’s world other people could be endangered.

WHO?

Kind of OT, but has anyone noticed if Benghazi Barry is wearing his ring during this time of Ramadamn?

I read somewhere wearing jewelry is not allowed during this time.

Yep, my first thought as well. But then those are just the children that she didn’t kill herself in the womb.

How completely, utterly confused can a mother be? She’s raising her kids with a combination of Jewish, Catholic and Muslim teachings. They’ll be so confused that when they grow up they’ll probably just skip religion entirely.

She wrote this screed just to let the world know how open-minded she is. An open mind gathers no truth.

“I will worry that she will pass out from dehydration while leading my 2- and 3-year-old children across the street.”

Stupid ^%$@(*! What would you do then? You put your children at risk (you just said it!) so as not to appear intolerant?

Get over your Noble Savage fixation and find someone with a compatible culture.

I would not have quite so much fear of Ramadan, they just get real cranky,but the ten days following for Eid when they celebrate you and your children's future slaughter as infidels might be a little dicy.

Clue... Get one

If so then she is insane for keeping her. She would be out my door in the morning.
