New Year's Resolutions

We all make them, and we break them. Here's one I hope you'll keep and share with others you know. The wonderful people at Hooked on Phonics have created a wonderful program that gives back to the community, and all of us can get involved.

Basically, if you make a New Year's Resolution to teach a child to read in 2009, HoP will donate a learn-to-read kit to needy children through, a really cool non-profit. The best part is that it is FREE.
So get started today! Pledge now to help a child to read in 2009, and give them the tools they need to succeed not only with reading, but with their overall education.

Working With Divorced Parents

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?
