The biggest trouble rock families have is where to find a good nanny and how to convince the school to let your child miss more school than the law allows. Trustworthy nannies are difficult to find. Everyone I knew who had children at home and on the road was always looking for a new nanny. The biggest problem is many are fans. Fans do not make good nannies as they tend to be interested in the music and people around them, instead of the children. I was fortunate to have a wonderful nanny and house manager for 13 years! She was a blessing and I was grateful for every day she was with us.
We even got the school to let the kids miss more days than is allowed. Once they realized we actually took the kids to museums, castles, zoos, and yes..even bull fights and concentration camps...they let the kids go. The teachers agreed our children learned more about the world being on the road than they could ever learn in school.

When they kids were school age, we always got a bus for our family. We never wanted any family fights, arguments about staying up late, or food fights to get in other's space. Contrary to some reports, our family is normal, with normal situations and some you may consider abnormal! We like to keep it private. Our extended family is around the world, too! We brought several of the best friends, boy friends, girl friends and nannies around the world with us too.
