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

Chris and Lenore will discuss, among other things, parenting in the modern age of fear. Topics will include recent cases of parents who have been arrested for merely wanting their children to be independent and self-reliant.
Lenore, who's been called the world’s worst mom for inspiring parents to raise self-sufficient kids, maintains her own website FreeRangeKids, which offers a good reality check on the constant fearmongering put out by the nanny state.

Patrice Johnson started inspired MOM in 2014, steaming from her own personal struggles of being a single mom. inspired MOM is a haven for MOM's that need a hug, some direction and a little inspiration. Patrice lives to be an inspiration to others, NOT because she's the perfect MOM but because she works towards HER perfection daily.

Inspired MOM is an organization that helps MOMs through their journey of parenthood. Inspired MOMs kicked off its first event in early 2014 with a mom’s appreciation dinner and cupcakes for dads that expressed to parents the appreciation that is sometimes missed. Every month after inspired MOM has hosted a FREE MOM's night out to give the moms a much needed break and time to socialize with other moms. Through social media outlets and the bi-weekly blog inspired MOM reaches hundreds of moms with useful parenting strategies and inspiration. inspired MOM strongly believes that every mom must find her own strategy that works for her family, and we are here to help. The mission of inspired MOMs is to build a bridge to help moms get to their destination. Patrice is her brand! MOM is an acronym that stands for mom on a mission.
