It is always stressful when you leave a child in the hands of another---whether if he or she is a close relative, friend, or babysitter. With nanny cams, you never have to worry anymore about leaving your child in another person’s care. A majority, if not all, nanny cams have motion activated recording that features a high resolution camera, even including a DVR. What is great about these cameras is that they are completely not obvious and will blend into your surroundings. You can even set your camera to motion activation or to continuous recording, as most appropriate for you and your budget.

In Russia during the second half of the eighteenth century, a public conversation emerged that altered perceptions of pregnancy, birth, and early childhood. Children began to be viewed as a national resource, and childbirth heralded new members of the body politic. The exclusively female world of mothers, midwives, and nannies came under the scrutiny of male physicians, state institutions, a host of zealous reformers, and even Empress Catherine the Great. Making innovative use of obstetrical manuals, belles lettres, children?s primers, and other primary documents from the era, Anna Kuxhausen draws together many discourses?medical, pedagogical, and political?to show the scope and audacity of new notions about childrearing. Reformers aimed to teach women to care for the bodies of pregnant mothers, infants, and children according to medical standards of the Enlightenment. Kuxhausen reveals both their optimism and their sometimes fatal blind spots in matters of implementation. In examining the implication of women in public, even political, roles as agents of state-building and the civilizing process, From the Womb to the Body Politic offers a nuanced, expanded view of the Enlightenment in Russia and the ways in which Russians imagined their nation while constructing notions of childhood.
In 1956, Marco Rubio?s parents came to America as poor immigrants with grade-school educations. They found a land of opportunity where anyone could work hard, play by the rules, and build a better future for themselves and their children. His family proved the reality of the American Dream, where the children of maids and bartenders could become doctors, lawyers, small business owners, and maybe even a U.S. senator. But now the American Dream is on life support. Years of government-centered, tax-and-spend liberalism have failed to lift the poor or sustain the middle class. Millions of everyday Americans have been left behind by an economy that doesn?t value their skills and a government that would rather give them a handout than a hand up. In this follow-up to his bestselling memoir, An American Son, Senator Rubio offers a road map for restoring the land of opportunity. He explains why we now stand at a critical junction and why the next few years will determine the future for our children and grandchildren. He shares his plan for scaling back the nanny state, helping families save for college and retirement, and making it easier for small businesses to create millions of good jobs. Above all, he urges us to return to the values and can-do spirit that made our country exceptional in the first place.
The Adventures of Dedan and Dylan Jackson is about the adventures of two imaginative boys and their tales of mischief. Dedan and Dylan both live with their mom in an upper-middle-class home. Their parents are recently divorced, but are attempting to work together for the sake of the children. Mrs. Ruth is the family's nanny who watches the Jackson boys. The idea for the book came about because of the lack of books about African American boys. I decided to begin a chapter series to contribute to the need for books that focus on African American male characters, and positive role models in the African American community. I wrote this book in an effort to begin a trend in writing stories that all children can relate to at any age. This is not a book solely for African American families or children. These are warm and loving stories for families to share and read together.
Cuba was a playground for the wealthy in the 1950s. It was a place to bask in the sun during the day, and enjoy many fine nightclubs, restaurants, theaters, and casinos after the sun went down. Many wealthy Americans traveled to Cuba for both business and pleasure. In January of 1959, everything changed. I was a little girl in Cuba at that time. I was living a life of luxury with practically anything that my little heart desired. My family had a chauffeur and homes in the city, in the country, and at the beach. I had my own nanny. I had parents and grandparents that loved me and lived close by so that I could see them almost every day. I was truly living a fairy-tale existence. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, my world came crashing down around me. Fidel Castro took over Cuba and made devastating changes to the country - and to the lives of those who lived there. The fairy tale quickly came to an end. Many difficult decisions had to be made by my parents and by many others. The world that we knew no longer existed. We had to leave loved ones and property behind. We had to move forward to a new life in a different country, with different customs, and a different language - and there was no turning back.
Acclaimed author Lauren Slater ruminates on what it means to be family. Lauren Slater''s rocky childhood left her cold to the idea of ever creating a family of her own, but a husband, two dogs, two children, and three houses later, she came around to the challenges, trials, and unexpected rewards of playing house. In these autobiographical pieces, Slater presents snapshots of domestic life, populating them with the gritty details and jarring realities of sharing home, life, and body in the curious institution called family. She asks difficult questions and probes unsettling truths about sex, love, and parenting. In these pages, Slater introduces us to her struggles with her mother, her determination to make a home of her own, her compromises in deciding to marry (her conflicts manifesting as an affair on the eve of her wedding), her initial struggle to connect with her newborn child, and the dilemmas of mothering with a mental illness. She writes openly about her decision to abort her second pregnancy and her later decision to have a second child after all. She tells us about the searing decision to have elective double mastectomy and how her love for her husband was magically rekindled after she saw him catch fire in a chemical accident. It''s not all mastectomies and chemical fires, though. Slater digs into the everyday challenges of family living, from buying a lemon of a car and fighting back menacing weeds to gaining weight and being jealous of the nanny. Beautifully written, often humorous, and always revealing, these stories scrutinize the complex questions surrounding family life, offering up sometimes uncomfortable truths.

All the romance of travel at sea is captured in the long history of P&O. From humble beginnings in the 1830s, The Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company grew to dominate British mercantile shipping for much of the 19th, and a good deal of the 20th, centuries. Initially the company's paddle steamers carried Her Majesty's Mail, as the name implies, to the Iberian Peninsular, but over time P&O extended its routes across the Mediterranean, and onwards to the Middle East, Far East and Australasia. Besides the mail P&O liners carried specie, as well as such commodities as silk, tea, and even opium And then there were the passengers - colonial officers, the military, planters, traders, big game hunters, pilgrims, missionaries, emigrants, Monarchs and Maharajah, along with their wives, children and nannies; not forgetting the 'fishing fleet' - young ladies venturing east to catch a husband. P&O came to represent the British Empire at sea, and as the Empire waned, and Britain took to the air, so a golden age of travelling by sea came to an end. This new book delves into the P&O archives to take a nostalgic glance astern at all those who travelled P&O.
Dear friends, My parents came to the United States in 1956. The country they found was truly a land of opportunity, where hardworking people with grade school educations could afford a home, a car, and college for their kids. A country where maids and bartenders could raise doctors, lawyers, small-business owners, and maybe even a U.S. senator. That was the American Dream - our country's central promise to its people- If you work hard and play by the rules, you'll find tremendous opportunities and an even better life for your children. Yet today, I look around and see the American Dream on life support. Seven years of government-centered, tax-and-spend liberalism have failed to lift the poor or sustain the middle class. Fewer Americans are working than at any time since Jimmy Carter was president. New business creation is 30 percent lower than it was in the 1980s. The stock market may be surging by the time you read this, but millions of everyday Americans will still be left behind by an economy that doesn't value their skills and a government that would rather give a handout than a hand up. I wrote this book because we stand at a critical juncture. What kind of country are we going to be? Will we surrender to Obamacare and other laws that crush innovation and entrepreneurship? Will we accept a powerful nanny state and the erosion of family values? Will we allow politics to kill the American Dream? Or will we rise to the challenge - and take back our legacy as the only nation on earth that offers unrestricted opportunity to all? I believe we can restore the American Dream and expand it to reach more people than ever before. But to do so we must restrain our power-hungry, debt-ridden federal government. We must help businesses create more stable middle-class jobs. And we must help our families stay healthy and secure. In this book you'll meet an over-regulated small-businessman, a struggling single mother, an out-of-work and in-debt college graduate, and others who want nothing more than their own shot at the American Dream. Their stories are our stories; their challenges are our challenges. Of course no book or politician can single-handedly restore the American Dream. But a movement, working to promote the values and can-do spirit that made our country exceptional, can turn everything around. My goal is to provide a roadmap for that movement and inspire Americans to reclaim their rights- to dream, to work, to build a better life for their children. I hope you will join me as we build that movement and restore the land of opportunity. Sincerely, Marco Rubio
"Lady Pamela Hicks's joyously entertaining new memoir, arguably the poshest book that ever has or will be written" ("Newsweek"), is a privileged glimpse into the lives and loves of some of the twentieth century's leading figures. Pamela Mountbatten entered a remarkable family when she was born in Madrid at the very end of the "Roaring Twenties." Daughter of the glamorous heiress Edwina Ashley and Lord Louis Mountbatten, Pamela spent much of her early life with her sister, nannies, and servants--not to mention a menagerie of animals that included, at different times, a honey bear, chameleons, a bush baby, and a mongoose. Her parents' vast social circle included royalty, film stars, celebrities, and politicians. Noel Coward invited Pamela to watch him film, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. dropped in for tea. However when war broke out Pamela and her sister were sent to New York to live with Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, while the prime minister appointed her father to be the last Viceroy of India. Amid the turmoil, Pamela came of age, meeting the student leaders who had been released from jail, working in the canteen for Allied forces and in a clinic outside Delhi. She also developed a close bond with Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. "If you are addicted to "Downton Abbey," chances are that you will relish "Daughter of Empire," a British aristocrat's memoir of her childhood and coming of age...She is also a keen observer of a way of life now vanished, except on PBS" ("The Wall Street Journal"). "Not many people remain who can tell stories like Lady Pamela Hicks" ("Vanity Fair").
Rugged Craig Haynes came from a long line of lady-killers. Lately, though, the single dad was targeting only Jill Bradford, his sons' new nanny. Two parts sweetness, one part sin, the petite redhead proved a wizard with his rambunctious boys. So what made this miracle-worker insist she was strictly hired help? Could a houseful of Haynes males ambush her wary heart...and make her a mother and wife.
An Immigrant American Hero is the story of Patricio (Tico) de la Fuente, a Mexican immigrant who came to this country during World War II when he was only six years old. Leaving behind a life of wealth, nannies and mayor domos in the mining towns in Chihuahua, Mexico, Tico and his family moved into a garage in East Los Angeles. Accepting their new life of reduced circumstances, Tico's parents never gave into the idea that their sons were not meant to succeed in life. They insisted that Tico and his brother, Chacho, focus on their education and remain faithful to God and the Catholic Church. It was his faith in God, and strong family values that inspired him throughout his life, so that no matter what the circumstance, this American immigrant hero faced his life with humility, bravery, and laughter. An Immigrant American Hero is a modern literary novel inspired by the stories of very real extraordinary immigrant men. Where the book American Me told the East Los Angeles story of immigrants becoming the gangsters of Mi Familia, (the Mexican Mafia), An Immigrant American Hero is but one story of the heroes coming from the same community.

In 1931 domestic service remained the largest female occupation in Britain. We view it today as an undesirable job, owing to the class divide it has come to represent, and this is reflected in the portrayals of mistresses and servants in books and on the screen. However, it was seen as the perfect way to equip young women with the skills necessary to become good wives and mothers, and continues to be a career taken up by many today. But what do we really know about how girls felt when taking up these positions in other people A|s houses, or how they were treated? Indeed, how has the domestic role changed over the years to incorporate nannies, au pairs and domestic staff in hotels, hospitals and other institutions? This first major study of domestic workers in the twentieth century includes first-hand accounts and reminiscences from men and women working in this sphere. Pamela Horn uses these sources, as well as official records and newspaper reports, to extract the truth about the lives and status of men and women in domestic service from A Ai900 to the new millennium. The reluctance of many women to return to service after the two world wars is discussed, together with government efforts to persuade them otherwise. Overseas recruitment is not forgotten, as a number of young women were trained in government centres for employment in the colonies, and many also came from other countries looking for work. Written with authority and from a national perspective, this well-researched study is essential reading for social historians and anyone with an interest in modern history.
