Playtime and Childcare in the Pandemic Age with Florence Ann Romano, The Windy City Nanny - Episode #95


Dr. Dan welcomes “The Windy City Nanny” Florence Ann Romano to episode 95.  A childcare expert and entrepreneur, Florence is also the author of Nanny and Me.  She joins the show today to talk about playtime, childcare, nanny wisdom, and more.

Florence Ann Romano, The Windy City Nanny™ (www.WindyCityNanny.com), is a dedicated philanthropist and former nanny who has always had a special place in her heart for children. Romano worked for over 15 years as a nanny, beginning as a ‘Mommy’s helper’ at the age of 11. 

Dr. Dan and Florence discuss the importance of empathy, parenting awareness, and what Florence calls the “healthy trifecta.” 

Florence’s career as a nanny as well as her informative website provide resources on many topics including:

  • What really works for caretakers and children?
  • How ditching electronic devices playtime benefits children    
  • What are some of the best ways for parents to homeschool their children (especially in the midst of COVID-19)?
  • The reason the best parenting practices come from the entire family working together

Florence’s book about her lifelong childcare experiences — Nanny and Me (Mascot Books, May 2015) — helps children make the transition from being cared for solely by their parents to having a nanny in their home.

The Parent Footprint Moment at the end of the show will resonate with parents and encourage parents to being open to learn and grow alongside their children.
