Queen Nanny is featured on Jamaica’s $500 bill and is the only woman declared one of Jamaica’s National Heroes.
For over 30 years she freed almost 1000 enslaved people and helped them settle into these new Maroon communities.
Nestled in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica is a small community known as Moore Town. It is also known as Nanny Maroon Town as it became home to Queen Nanny and her ancestors of the Maroons!
The Nanny defeated the British forces that enslaved them in many battles. Despite repeated attacks from the British soldiers on Grandy Nanny’s settlement which was formed in her honor and called Nanny Town, it remained under Maroon control for years with successful defenses.
Nanny of the Maroons is hailed as the true Queen of Jamaica. From the Ivory Coast in Africa, Nanny and her brothers found themselves in Jamaica during the 1800’s during a period of slavery and wars. During this time Nanny cunningly outwitted the British soldiers rescued and freed slaves and refused to sign any agreement to return run away slaves.

When you're working parents, one of the hardest decisions you've got to make is finding the right childcare for your family. Many families choose to hire a nanny to have a more personalized and one-on-one interaction with their children. But when you're hiring an individual, how do you ensure you're finding someone you completely trust with your child and your home, who's reliable, honest and great with kids? It's like hiring a second (or third) parent for your children. For many parents, it's hard to find the right match.
On this episode Lindsay Thompson and Anna Stivers of The Nanny League are on to give you tips on how to find the right nanny, including:
* What to look for in a nanny
* What to think about when writing a job description
* Suggestions for interview questions, reference checks and background checks
* How to do a trial run with prospective nannies
* Standard benefits for nannies and basics on the legal aspects of hiring a nanny
* The benefits and costs of nanny placement services
* A special offer for LezBeMommies Radio listeners

Deanne McDonald must repay the money she got for agreeing to remain tight-lipped about the actor Adam Sandler.
A court has ordered Deanne McDonald who was hired as a nanny in 2009 to pay back $80,000 in damages after she accused him of treating her like a slave. Sandler then paid McDonald $48,000, as well as a further $29,000 to her attorneys to make the matter go away and she signed a confidentiality agreement.
However despite agreeing not to speak about the matter, last year she changed her mind and tried to file a lawsuit. But an arbitrator quickly ruled she was in violation of the confidentiality agreement by repudiating it, disclosing confidential information and threatening to sue and an appeal’s court told her to pay back the $80,000 Sandler had paid to keep her quiet.
The US Justice System is broken! We can refer to race, but also we must take into account the differences between the RICH and POOR.
The arrest rate of African American youth is nearly two times that of white youth. African American youth are 1.4 times more likely to be detained than white youth arrested for the same crimes, and are twice as likely to be transferred to adult court.
African American youth are 10 times more likely than their white peers to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. This is just one example of disparities in sentencing. African Americans of all ages are given sentences twice as long as whites.
African Americans make up more than half (56.1%) of youth sentenced to life without parole. This is almost identical to the disparity seen among the overall population sentenced to life without parole, where 56.4% are African American.

A dedicated philanthropist and former nanny, Florence Ann Romano has always kept a special place in her heart for children.
Romano started caring for kids before she was a teenager, and she shares those experiences in her first book for children and their parents. Mascot Books releases “Nanny and Me” in May 2015. A woman with a charitable spirit, Romano spends time working with nonprofit organizations. Inspired by her younger brother, whom is autistic, she is the founder and president of a junior board that supports awareness for children, adults and families touched by Autism.
I recently had a simply delightful conversation with Florence about her children’s book, Nanny and Me, and a wide range of topics from what parents should look for when hiring a nanny, to mommy guilt and growing up with a sibling who lives with autism. Please take a listen.
