We introduced Nannypalooza speakers in part one of this feature two weeks ago. Now get familiar with the rest of the exceptional line-up of speakers and workshops for this event.
The Habit of Helping
What is compassion? Can it be taught or is it simply an innate character trait? How does it develop, and how can care providers empower children to become compassionate, participative members of the world around them? Is there such a thing as too much? We’ll explore the answers to these questions, as well as the role of how compassion and helping in the world play a role in many of today’s hot child development issues, such as self esteem and bullying.
Get a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Do you want your employers to respect your opinion and listen to your advice? We all do. Understanding your employer’s perspective is the key to getting them to see things from your point of view. Come to this workshop to learn not only how to communicate so that your employers will listen but also to become the most knowledgeable child care provider you can be.
Cloth Diapering 101
Are you working for a family looking save money while going green? Do you cringe at the thought of adding to landfill waste and love the idea of soft reusable fibers against your baby’s skin, then cloth diapering may be the solution you’re looking for. More and more families are interested in this option. This is a great way to get information to share and be the expert in the home.
And no, we’re not talking about the safety pins and thick soggy diapers of the 1970s. Today, dozens of options exist for clean, dry, and surprisingly low-maintenance cloth diapers.
In this one-hour workshop, Heide Fraley, mom of three (including twin toddlers) will give you all the basics you need to understand how easy it is to jump into the cloth diapering world. Get past the stigma, myths, and confusion. Explore different types of diapers that might be right for your budget and needs. Touch and feel samples. Learn about accessories to make cleaning and storing your diapers a cinch.

2)Will cover the basic different discipline techniques and how to use positive reinforcement with defiant children.
Enjoy learning new information, active conversation and a new approach to your daily life as a Professional Nanny.
Ashley R. Hayes is professional parent trainer and personal childhood educator. She received her degree from Campbell University in Family Consumer Science-Childhood Development and is a proud member of the National Association for Education of Young Children. She spent several years teaching in the classroom before realizing she would make more of a positive and permanent impact with families by working on on one with the parents and entire family.

The tools she uses revolve around consistency and parent patience. These tools allow the children to grow and learn while following the parents as well as authority figures. She has assisted numerous families which resulted in permanent positive changes and successful outcomes. Ashley grows a relationship with each parent and forms a bond with the children that allows the entire family to feel comfortable in sharing concerns with her.
Her professional, respectable, compassionate and driven personality is part of the formula to her success.

Jack and Nanny Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water

And Nanny Jill came screaming after!

Building Resilient Kids!
What better gift could we give the children in our care than the ability to handle whatever life throws at them? Dr. Gilboa, a family doctor and parenting expert (as well as mom of 4) will give tools and tips to teach resilience. From scrapes on the playground to bedtime fears to real life tragedies, Dr. G will give us ways to use the events in our kids’ lives as we teach them to manage their own emotions. She will demonstrate how to empower children to be problem-solvers and resource-finders. Come spend an hour learning what else we can do to build the calm and confidence that comes when kids know they can handle most anything.
Dr. G (Deborah Gilboa, MD) has been empowering parents around the country to increase their knowledge and to utilize the parenting instincts they already have, but have been dampened by stress, doubt and guilt, so that they may raise their kids to be people they respect and admire.
