From the Author:

Doris J. Pick, Ph. D. As the co-author of the book and licensed psychologist who developed the Personnel Attitude Questionnaire-a questionnaire designed to predict nannies' work behaviors, I am excited to be able to provide you, the parents with access to professional services regarding the hiring of a nanny on a cost-effective basis. My 20 years experience in working with individuals and families, such as yourselves, have given me insight into the complexity of family needs. I fully understand that while each family is unique, all parents share the same concerns regarding the well-being of their children. I know that working parents continue to struggle with guilt and worry about the consequences of leaving their children to the care of others. On the others hand, I am reassured to see more and more parents are becoming pro-active in seeking ways to provide for the safety and well-being of their offspring. It is imperative that parents have the necessary tools to assist them in making informed choices regarding the care of their children. I am pleased that I am able to provide you with those tools, such as this book, psychological testing and background investigation. My sincere desire is for each of you to feel confident in your ability to find the right nanny for your family. Michelle Hadley As an agency owner and consultant, I have worked with many families over the last 15 years. I believe this book is a valuable asset in the hiring of a nanny. Each family may have unique needs, but all of you share some common goals. As a parent you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your child/children are safe and happy. I understand the prospect of hiring a nanny can seem daunting. How do you know where to start? What questions should you ask when you interview an applicant? What should you ask of the nanny references? Where do you obtain a background investigation? How can you predict what the nanny's work behaviors will be? Compared to other successful nannies, how nurturing will she be? The answers to these and so many more questions are finally available to you. By following the 10 easy steps, completing the fill-in-the-blank forms, completing the background investigation, and utilizing the results from the Personnel Attitude Questionnaire, you will be able to hire a nanny with peace of mind.
