The New Childcare Bible—A Must-Have Whether You Have Occasional Sitters or a Full-Time Nanny Finding the right caregiver can be one of the most life-changing decisions a parent makes. Whether it's a kindly neighbor for the weekday latchkey hours, a teenage babysitter one night a week, or a full-time professional nanny, the right caregiver can enrich a child's world and literally grow her brain. Hire the wrong one, and this person could cause developmental delays and stress for the entire family. In her groundbreaking new book, Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer: A Practical Guide for Finding and Achieving the Gold Standard of Care for Your Child, nationally recognized parenting expert Tammy Gold draws from her extensive background in child developmental psychology, social work, and family therapy to offer the first childcare bible for parents. Knowing the impact caregivers have on children coupled with the unregulated often unknown world of in-home childcare workers, Gold has devoted her professional career, and now this book, to helping parents navigate through this important--and woefully overlooked--process. She arms parents with invaluable tools, tips, and insider secrets to finding the perfect caregiver-family match. Gold's Family Needs Assessment helps parents identify the traits and conditions that are "must-haves," added "pluses," or nonnegotiable "deal breakers." Parents can then use this list of qualities to quickly weed out unqualified candidates. She also details what to ask over the phone and in a face-to-face interview, how to structure a trial run (which she deems essential), and what to spell out in a Nanny-Family Work Agreement--another essential tool included in the book. Readers learn her "Nanny Speak 1-2-3" technique to help clarify and resolve issues with the caregiver in a productive, positive way. In addition to saving hours and energy, Parents will also discover as much about parenting as they will about finding a nanny. Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer is chock-full of parenting gems about children's developmental stages, ways to nurture and stimulate the child, and essential strategies for maintaining harmonious and high-functioning parent-child-caregiver relationships. This book is a must read for parents who want to create a happier, healthier and safer childcare experience for their child.

His best friend and business partner had been searching for Alissa Lockhart for years. When Noah Collington boards an oilrig to reconfigure the computers and install a security program for Conquest Oil Company he makes an unexpected discovery. Alissa Lockhart is on board the oilrig as well. Now all he has to do is convince her to return with him to his hometown, Gemini Dakota, to see his partner who happens to be her big brother. That task is easier said than done considering Alissa doesn't want anything to do with either one of them. Alissa Lockhart didn't need her brother or his partner. She was twenty-five, a successful welding specialist for Conquest Oil and she'd had enough heartache to last her a lifetime. The only problem was Noah Collington wasn't going to leave her alone until she agreed to accompany him back to Gemini Dakota. Which left her only one thing to do: lock all her secrets up and throw away the key. The heartache her brother had caused her by walking away from their family was nothing compared to the heartache her secrets could inflict on him if unlocked.

Dry, comic and poignantly unforgettable, this is a moving childhood memoir of the great, late art critic. David Sylvester, who died in June 2001, achieved fame with his work on Cezanne, but became known especially for his close, perceptive studies of artists who became personal friends: Giacometti, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon. A brilliant interviewer who could make the most reticent artists disclose their secrets, he rarely revealed his own. But in the weeks before his death he wrote this brief, unforgettable account of his childhood. Beginning with his bewildered shuttling between an English nursery school and the turbulent Yiddish-speaking "parental country," he reaches back for his child's-eye view to bring us a life and a whole world in miniature.
