  • Michelle LaRowe worked for me for almost two years as an expert parenting consultant, helping to create helpful and informative parenting content for a variety of websites. In that time, Michelle was the ideal consultant. She was able to provide targeted and helpful feedback not only to me, but to a community of freelance writers and editors, improving quality and forming relationships with the community at the same time. She was essentially the backbone of our library of parenting content.

  • Michelle LaRowe has put the 'parent' back in parenting with her no-nonsense approach to the world's greatest profession. Our family loved her confident "that's just the way we do it" approach so much that now even our girls say it to one another.

  • Michelle is a true expert. Her passion leaps off the page with anecdotes and lessons from her own experience as a career nanny making this book a must have for parents and caretakers.

  • Nanny to the Rescue Again! picks up where the first book left off, when you're preparing your kiddos for school, and sending them off to learn to fly solo. Michelle approaches every situation in a loving, practical way using her ten-plus-years of experience as a nanny to explain the relatively simple processes. No doubt about it, you'll be a better parent after reading this book!

  • A must-read for every working mom. LaRowe gives moms confidence and chutzpa, plus it's chock full o' nuggets to excel both at home and work. As CEO of a corporation and mother to two grown children, I related to the challenges addressed in Working Mom's 411. I only wish it had been released before my kids were grown!

As a parent and a family advocate, I appreciate her insight and realistic solutions to common every day occurrences. I encourage all caregivers to read this book.

  • She is the hardest worker in the industry and certainly among the most knowledgeable. She’s also one of the most influential – if not the most influential – catalysts for change/growth/improvement. Her list of accomplishments and successes would put her in the care industry’s Hall of Fame – on the first ballot. If you’re looking for a smart, tireless, dedicated industry expert who is well-connected and well respected throughout the industry, you can look no further. Michelle is that good.
