While there are hundreds of books that tell parents how to puree their own baby food or train a toddler tp sleep, there are almost resources for handling one of the most important aspects of a child's daily world: childcare. Studies show that a child's carer 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 carer and, most importantly, identify, evaluate and resolve any issues that arise in a productive, positive way, preventing little misunderstandings from festering into big problems.
