What's the Secret to Hiring the Right Nanny?

The thought of leaving your child in the care of a stranger can seem daunting--but it doesn't have to be that way.  The secret to hiring the right nanny is using your heart, soul and mind throughout the process.

The Nanny Manual will take you on a  journey of self discovery through your heart, soul and mind to help you prepare as you make this most important hiring decision.  Whether investigating the viability of choice for working mothers, debunking the myth of perfection that is Mary Poppins, or exploring the minefields of emotions, values and the hiring process, The Nanny Manual prepares you for the day when you leave your child in the care of another.
