If you are a working parent or are thinking about going back to work, this book is a great resource. It covers every aspect of how to find the right childcare provider for your children and how to keep good childcare as well. One of the hardest things for me to deal with is the guilt of leaving my son I am filled with such a sense of torment concerning the whole childcare dilemma. The first pages of this book discuss the whole notion of accepting the need for childcare. It was very important for me to come to accept that I will HAVE to find someone to care for my child; this book helped me to do just that... One of the things I liked most about this book is that it is very encouraging and optimistic -- you CAN find the right person to care for your children. -- ParentingPlace.com - November 1999
