Abstract:

"From the playground to the playroom, mothers and nannies are engaged in a relationship like no other--they are sometime coparents and comrades, often confidantes, and much more than employer and employee. It is a complex relationship that touches on issues of love, trust, and money. It can be a wonderful collaboration between two women who care for the same child or a difficult situation with unfulfilled expectations on both sides. Mothers can be obsessive, conflicted, and confused about how to manage caregivers--but they must also contend with how they feel about having another woman take care of their children. Caregivers love the kids but often run into trouble dealing with moms. And Nanny Makes Three goes behind the scenes of domestic arrangements to find out what moms and nannies are really thinking about each other, the kids, their respective jobs, and their identities. In this eye-opening book, Jessika Auerbach plumbs the depths of this unique relationship and presents perspectives from both sides. Mothers' and caregivers' genuine and unique voices are equally represented, giving a balanced view to this highly complicated, emotionally charged relationship. Anyone who is a mother--working or not--or thinking of becoming a mother and wondering how to juggle career and children without dropping the ball somewhere along the way will gain invaluable insight from And Nanny Makes Three." -- Jacket.
