Notes to Editors
About The Three Day Nanny Series 3
In this new series, KATHRYN is faced with some of her toughest challenges yet: a stay at home dad struggling with two boys aged two and three who won’t stop fighting, whilst their mum struggles to spend more than 10 minutes alone with them; a single mum of four under the age of three trying to control her children and get out the house with them, coupled with the constant demands to be carried; three children whose relentless fighting, biting and name calling are tearing the family apart; tantrums that can last a full day; the extreme attention seeking two year old who is constantly banging his head in protest and trying to get his parents to react; and fighting brothers at war with mum and dad whose own childhood experiences have left them with little idea how to cope. The pressure then mounts as KATHRYN withdraws to observe how and if the parents have put her advice into action and whether they can cope without her by their side. But whatever problems KATHRYN is faced with, her solutions might be seen as unconventional by some but they are always effective.
KATHRYN MEWES has over 20 years’ experience working with children…and their parents. She was trained at the prestigious Norland Nanny School and has since set up her own nanny practice where she has worked intensively with hundreds of families to give them bespoke troubleshooting advice.
