A problem faced by many a dual-earner family in Hong Kong is childcare. We have had two helpers since our first child, who is now ten and a half, and our younger child is nearly eight. Our current helper has worked for us for coming up to six years, and turned fifty last year. And I’ve had enough. There comes a time when having that one more body in the apartment just gets all a bit too much. I just can't live with no helper no more.
