MOST canadians here DO NOT have live-in nannies. MOST families here have both parents working and they have to arrange their work around dropping off and picking up their kids to and from daycares. THIS IS NORMAL Canadian life. Very few are lucky enough to get some help from parents or relatives but it's not very common. And even when they can, they won't do that to burdan their parents for FULL TIME childcare. Your wish of getting your parents over to replace daycare isn't really a valid ground for H&C.
