Need a Mom? NYC Millennials Can Now Rent One.

Written by Gary

New Yorkers in need of motherly advice can now rent a mom.

need a mom

Let’s face it, living in New York is a bitch, especially for whiny millennials. If you haven’t done it yet, you will eventually do the following: cry in public, get lost on the train and end up at the edge of some random borough, have your heart broken by someone you met online, and be accosted by someone trying to bamboozle you (either out of your phone, purse, money, or general well-being).

Brooklyn-based Nina Keneally knows all this, and has created a service called Need A Mom, for ‘when you need a mom…just not YOUR mom’.

Her idea is actually kind of genius. For $40 an hour plus expenses (paid for by your parent’s credit card, you spoiled little Millennial!), Keneally will listen to all you problems, offer advice, help you plan dinner, sew buttons back on, and probably tuck you into bed if you need it. She will do all the things that your mother can’t do, because she is back in Roosterfart, Ohio, enjoying the fact that she can walk around naked and drink milk out of the carton. Because don’t be fooled, empty nesting was the end goal for your mom.

Nina’s idea is to be a mother figure for all the bohemian kids that flood into the city every year without a clue on how to really be an adult. Honestly, there are a lot of things people do that they wouldn’t tell their actual mothers, and Nina will listen without judgment.

So, if you are in the New York area and need some motherly advice without any Catholic, Jewish, or geographic guilt, maybe NeedAMom is just what you need.
