I loved it!

I loved reading this book! As a 'new' nanny, I found this book very useful. At first i said I wouldn't want to work with a family like these mentioned in the book, but then I thought more about it, and I actually wouldn't mind getting the 'experience'. I live in So cal, so we do have families like those D.C. families. This is a must read!!

For all parents with children and nannies. You'll laugh out loud!

White House Nannies tells stories of the interworkings of the nanny placement world that are worth telling. I laughed at Barbara, at White House Nannies, and at the families and nannies they bring together - some more successfully than others. As a working mother with nannies functioning as the 3rd parent in my home for over 7 years, I also laughed at myself as there was a story or maybe even two that "hit home." White House Nannies focuses on the humor in the struggle to balance work, marriage and family. The tongue-and-cheek syle of writing brings out the humor in every example (some typical and some not so typical) of this struggle. Very entertaining!

She nailed it!

Barbara Kline has penned an extremely well written page turner that absolutely nails the nanny industry in the U.S. today. I should know, I own a nanny agency myself. She has been fair to both nannies and the families who hire them and her sense of what works and what doesn't passes the test of time and experience. You root for her families who are trying to have it all--career and family, and you cheer for the nannies who make it all happen. There is not a slow page in this fast read. Barbara is a caring, competent agency owner and it is great that someone of her intelligence and ethical standards has taken the time to share her experiences, her common sense and her humour. If a good book makes your day, this is today's read. Karen Walker Ryan, President, Heartland Caregivers Inc.

This is a truly fun read!

This book is an intelligent and very funny look at the often wild world of child care. It's not only for the Washington crowd to guess who the players are, but every parent can recognize him or herself somewhere in this book. After reading this book you should feel much more comfortable with your own lot! It's an easy read that will make you laugh out loud.


I absolutely adored this book. It is a great beach read/ guilty pleasure. Kline's true stories are hilarious and get even more outrageous as the book progresses. What impressed me the most, was how well it was written. I highly recommend this book!
