"While many families view their nanny as part of the family, Gold reminds readers that this is ultimately an employment relationship. She dispenses exceptional advise that will help families avoid common pitfalls and is especially strong when illustrating scenarios from a nanny’s point of view. From her needs assessment to interview questions to problem-solving language, Gold’s examples and crisp narrative give readers one-stop shopping for nanny know-how. A required purchase. Well done."
“Parents setting out on the nanny quest will surely benefit from this practical handbook.”
“All new parents contemplating in-home care will think The Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer is a godsend. It offers good sense, reassuring advice, and detailed instructions on how to find and keep a good nanny—probably the most important decision you will make in your child’s early life.”
—Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of The Idea That is America
“Seeking a nanny who will be in sync with your family and life style? Here’s how. Your children — and their developing brains and bodies — will thank you for heeding this book’s excellent advice.”
— Carol S. Kranowitz, M.A., author of The Out-of-Sync Child
"Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer is a godsend for parents looking for a caregiver who not only tends to their child's basic needs, but nurtures the whole child--mind, body, and spirit."
—Patricia Gale, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
About the Author
Tammy earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her graduate degree from Columbia University, and has worked with families and nannies for over a decade, while also running parenting groups and giving lectures. Her revolutionary "Nanny Whisperer Communication Techniques" were created from her work counseling couples, and her "Gold Standard Nanny Hiring Process" is based on Dr. John Bowlby's Attachment Theory, Erik Erickson's Stages of Psychosocial Development, and Mary Ainsworth's Secure Base Phenomenon. She is one of the first therapists to marry psychotherapy with childcare.
Tammy is recognized nationally as a leading authority on nanny-parent relationships, communication and conflict management. She has appeared in more than 100 magazines, and writes regularly for The Huffington Post, MommyCoach.com, The Bump.com and Howcast.com. Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer: A Practical Guide for Finding and Achieving the Gold Standard of Care for Your Child (Perigee, 2015) is her first book.
