America's nanny offers a large dose of healthy parenting advice with secrets for raising happy, secure, and well-balanced babies and toddlers.
Babies don't come with instructions. And since today's parents are so overwhelmed with schedules and demands, they have little time to bone up on their parenting skills. Often removed from grandparents and relatives who in times past lived next door or just down the street, they have no one to guide them through the disorienting world of raising children. Enter Nanny to the Rescue! Michelle LaRowe, 2004 International Nanny Association "Nanny of the Year," gives her tried and true solutions to childcare. Her expertise with chapters titled "Who's the boss?" and "Discipline is not a four letter word" gives confidence to parents who need specific ideas for real day-to-day problems. A proud member of Christian Nannies, Michelle offers foundational truths sure to help encourge moms and dads.
Michelle LaRowe is "America's Nanny" and author of Nanny to the Rescue! The 2004 International Nanny Association "Nanny of the Year" and a credentialed career nanny for twelve years, Michelle is the Founder & President of Boston Area Nannies, Inc., Vice President of the International Nanny Association, and a proud member of Christian Nannies.

Tell us a little about yourself. Hmm. I am thrity, divorced, have no children of my own and I am a chemist by training - that goes to show that God doesn't choose us because we are prepared, He prepares us because we are chosen.
What was your motivation behind this project? You'd be pretty motivated too, if you got a call while you were in the local YMCA getting your charges ready for swim class and a male voice on the other end of the line responded to your hello with "Are you a woman of faith?" and a few weeks later you ended up writing a book series of your own! This has really been a God given project. He had a messsage and I was willing to lend my voice.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Insight, encouragement and empowerment. I feel that God has a message for today's parents - "to take back their children." I hope that readers come away with a refreshed appreciation for parenthood, along with some tried and true nanny tips that I've had tucked away in my carpet bag.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Well, the Holy Spirit was the influence in writing this book. He spoke through me. My mom has been an amazing influence in my life and taught me most of what I know about parenting. But then came two little guys, that captured my heart when they were just days old, that taught me a bundle - probably as much as I've taught them.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: That God can do the impossible.
