"A top expert reveals the most common mistakes parents make with their nannies--and how to avoid them. While there are hundreds of books that tell parents how to puree their own baby food or sleep train a toddler, there are almost no resources for handling one of the most important aspects of a child's daily world: childcare. Studies show that a child's caregiver will have a direct impact on their social, emotional, and intellectual development-making strong childcare a crucial part of their early life. In this insightful and practical guide, parenting coach and psychotherapist Tammy Gold shows parents how to assess their family's needs, screen and select the strongest nanny or other type of caregiver, and, most important, identify, evaluate, and resolve any issues that arise in a productive, positive way, preventing little misunderstandings from festering into big problems.
