Nanny to the Rescue
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, former 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.
Nanny To the Rescue Again

America's nanny is back to offer a large dose of healthy parenting advice with secrets for raising happy, secure, and well-balanced children.
Keeping It Together
In today's busy world keeping the family's schedules straight can be a full time job of its own. Add into the mix grocery shopping, to do lists, errands, and house management tasks and you may be thinking its time to hire a personal assistant of your own.
Well take heart, I've found the next best thing- www.homeconvenience.com. HomeConvenience.com is an online family calendar and home organization tool that can be customized to meet the needs of even the busiest families.
As a nanny and household manager, I am often left with the responsibility of creating the master schedule of the home that I am employed in. HomeConvenience.com has made this task much easier. Everyone in the family can "sync" their schedules from their Outlook or Palm accounts onto the award winning secure server, allowing me to create the master schedule - which I can then print out or email to the entire family. One of the best features of the application is that I can send updates via cell phone and email to myself, reminding me of important appointments and events. I can also alert my employers of changes in the kids' schedules or send them appointment reminders with the click of my mouse.
HomeConvenience.com also has an address book and various data bases for grocery lists, to do lists, home inventories, journaling, meal planning and emergency contact information. Once the information is entered it can be updated, edited and printed - formatted in an easy to read format. Picture it. You type in the basic grocery list of the house, and then everyone can log onto the secure server and add their weekly requests. Send a last reminder before you head out the door, then print out the list and take it with you - no more complaining that something was left off the list!!
The newest and my favorite addition to the application is the Family Center. This area of the site provides a form printing wizard that automatically generates common forms such as Emergency Contact Information, a Babysitters Check List, Member Profile Form and tools to filter each family member's profile - from allergy information to underwear sizes. When grandma calls this Christmas and wants to know what's on Molly's list pull up her profile notes and email them over. When Aunt Mary wants to know what shirt size your hubby is- pull up his profile and its there to see. Once the basic information is entered into the system, the ways you can use it is unlimited. HomeConvenience.com is truly a time saving tool.
So if you are sick of wondering where Steve is going to be tomorrow night, when Sarah has soccer practice, what you need at the grocery store and when you are due for your annual dental exam check out HomeConveience.com and you won't have to wonder anymore.
