“I just wanted to say that I was very glad that I took the time to register with you. I knew that one day I would find a family or vise versa, that would meet my needs. I enjoy children so much, I am so very happy with the family that I am with. The night that I had e-mailed them, she had contacted me that same night, we set up an interview for that sunday, they hired me that following thursday. I was so thrilled, it took me almost a year to find the right family, but in the long run it was all worth while. I just wanted to say thank you.”
"Our program welcomes all kinds of families to apply to be on the show. Single parents, straight and gay parents, all ethnicities and income levels are invited. Whether you're a younger parent, or even an older parent, I find that the challenges facing parents today are universal--children need love, nurturing, laughter and stimulation, but they also need boundaries, discipline, structure and consistency. So many times parents want to be friends with their children, but what a child needs is a parent, not just a friend. It's tough to do, but your family will thrive if you can!"
“If there was one message I could leave with today’s families, it’s this: It is okay to ask for help.” States Candi Wingate, whose company has been matching nannies to families since 1987. “Today’s lifestyles and environments put more stress on a family than ever before. Children feel the stress of their parents’ multiple priorities and strive for attention in increasingly negative ways. A great nanny has one priority only, the well-being and happiness of the children in the family. It is a great break for busy parents to bring in the Nanny when Mom or Dad needs a time out. “Supernanny,” Wingate continues, “is a phenomenon in the work of Nannies. Jo Frost’s advice is spot on and I hope all our families across the country turn out for these casting calls”
