I've spent the past 10+ years working with divorced parents. I was thrilled to be asked to write about my perspective on this specialty niche and my suggestions and observations were published at the blog for Morningside Nannies in Houston, TX.You can also hear an interview I did at All About Nanny Care on this topic which has some more information, not included in the blog.
I invite you to check both of them out and let me know what you think about nannies who work with divorced parents. What advice do you have?

Those interviews are scheduled to air THIS THURSDAY - October 30. The focus will be on specialized nannies. I invite you to watch or set your Tivo or DVR's.

I highly recommend this conference to anyone in the in-home child care industry who has never attended an industry conference before. This Thursday - Sunday event is filled with networking opportunities, workshops, phenomenal speakers, industry leaders, and much more.
The INA also recognized an outstanding nanny in her profession by recognizing the Nanny of the Year. As a past INA Nanny of the Year (1997), I encourage all nannies to bring out their best and reach for this accomplishment and be recognized by your peers for the work you love.
Watch for more details on the conference as they become available.
Have you attended an INA Conference? What is the most important thing you've learned from attending Conference? What is your favorite memory?
