Just about every EP has uttered that universal working parent exclamation -- "I need a babysitter!" For parents of newborns to pre-schoolers who work at home, choosing the right part-time childcare provider is often as critical as choosing the right home business or home career. That's why the advice of Judy Lederman, known as the "Childcare Crusader," is so often sought after.

Judy was inspired to write her book, Searching for Mary Poppins: One Family's Quest for Perfect Childcare, after enduring a series of over twenty-five childcare situations for her three children. A former Vice President for a large New York Public Relations agency, Judy has operated a home office on and off since 1989. To write her book, she consulted human resource professionals, detectives and psychologists designed to help others learn about childcare. The book spans the gamut from daycare centers to family care to au pairs, nannies and babysitters.

"Most parents are not trained managers," explains Judy, whose children range in age from five to thirteen years. "Hiring childcare help, maintaining them, knowing when to fire them: these are challenges that anyone dealing with a childcare provider must face. In an unregulated industry, where can parents turn? Most states that require hairdressers and manicurists to have licenses don't require the same from a childcare provider. That is deplorable."

Judith Lederman has appeared on Oprah, Dateline NBC, Court TV, Fox News and in the New York Times with her sage wisdom on childcare.

Judy Lederman currently lives in Ardsley-on-Hudson, NY with her husband and three children. You can reach her by e-mail at [email protected]. (Note: send your EP questions here!)
