Who's Going to Watch My Kids?
Working Mothers' Humorous and Heartfelt Struggles to Find and Hold on to the Elusive Perfect NannyeBook - 2015
Who's Going To Watch My Kids? is the true story of working mom Rachel Levy Lesser's struggles to find and hold on to a nanny for her two young children. It also includes the stories of 15 other working moms and their humorous and heartfelt nanny tales. Each mother longs to employ the modern day Mary Poppins - that perfect nanny who they soon learn doesn't exist. This book explores the unique relationships that develop between working mothers (and fathers) and the nannies and the kids they care for. These relationships are more than professional yet not as intimate as familial ones (or sometimes even more so!) The working mothers in this book, Rachel included, put up with more issues from their nannies than they ever would with their employees in their offices, but in turn they also learn many lessons from their nannies and grow closer than they ever imagined. Rachel includes her own nanny rules based off of lessons learned from her experiences and those of the other mothers in the book. --Provided by publisher.
