Nanny 911: Expert Advice for All Your Parenting Emergencies by Deborah Carroll, Karen Moline, Stella Reid, Stella Reid

Regain control of your children with simple, direct, nanny-tested measures!

Is your life chaotic? Are your kids running the show? Do you feel like you're more of a zookeeper than a parent?

Take heart, America. When your family's in trouble, Nanny 911 is there on the double. Because brats are not born, they're made. No one knows that better than Deborah Carroll and Stella Reid—Nanny Deb and Nanny Stella—the stars of the overnight hit television show on the Fox network. Each week, up to ten million viewers tune in to see the nannies take charge and transform one family's utter chaos into serenity. No matter how loud the tantrums or how clueless the parents, Nanny Deb and Nanny Stella help them become the families they always wanted to be.

Now the nannies share their remarkable wisdom with millions of overwhelmed parents desperate for foolproof parenting advice at their fingertips. They'll show that parents need to change their behavior first—because when there are no consequences for naughty behavior, kids quickly realize there's no reason for the naughtiness to stop. And when mom and dad just don't know what to do, the kids take over. You'll learn how to confront problems head-on, with firm but loving discipline, effective communication, and the implementation of clear House Rules.

Nanny 911 is the perfect sourcebook for dealing with everyday problems that have escalated to levels that are out of control.

For parenting emergencies call 911. Nanny 911, that is.

With a Foreword by Head Nanny Lilian Sperling

Parents must be ready to implement the step-by-step instructions. The book is so easy to read - you can finish it in a few days. I would recommend reading the entire book and then deciding to pick the most important lessons to learn. I loved how they guide parents to picking the most important and serious areas. Kids will be kids - so chill out on some areas. As grandparents, we learn as many secrets as the parents. We met as a family group and implemented the same areas for consistency. If you have ever watched Nanny 911 show, it will make the reading more enjoyable because you will know your children are as normal as others. It is amazing how these small changes can easily be incorporated into your family life. Enjoy - and treat it as a therapy for all your family.

Although this book is chunky in size it really has nothing to say - the writing is inconsistent and I found it frustrating to read. The show is sensational I know, but I was hoping to get more helpful information from the book. Alas, this book felt like a big waste of money.

There is a great variety of helpful advice in this 300 page book. My only caveat is that there is no Index to quickly find a topic of interest. The book is divided into 3 main sections: Communication, House Rules, and Parenting 911 Emergencies. I found this organization structure a bit confusing to navigate without an Index. I really liked the charts in the book that clearly address the different negative parenting behaviors: clueless, disorganized, angry, undermining, nagging, loud and excusing...including 'What happens in a situation', 'What you typically say', 'What your partner does', 'What your child does', and then 'Offers an anecdote' demonstrating how to change for the better. I found myself identifying with most of these negative situations and learned some helpful strategies that have worked in my family. I think I will continue to refer back to this book again and again when my 2 boys (2 and 4) get older as it seems much of the advice is geared to school-aged children. If you have preschoolers like me, I would also like to recommend a very helpful complimentary book our pediatrician gave us called 'The Pocket Parent'. This A-Z parent friendly guide focuses soley on the 2,3,4 and 5 year old and the challenging behaviors they present such as bad words, biting, tantrums, lying, morning crazies, power struggles, whining and many others. I really like the anecdotes in both of these books that seem to ground the suggested strategies in reality for me. Both 'The Pocket Parent' and 'Nanny 911' are welcome additions to your home library that you can refer to over and over again. The best thing about these quick reference guides is that you do not have to read them cover to cover but rather the topics as you need them...each chapter is complete on its own. I really appreciate that in my busy life.
