She gave Clooney and co. the tips in the education of children

the bell rang As your telephone, thought Connie Simpson, Matt Damon wool congratulate her for her birthday. However, the reason for the call, so she tells it was a of other. The actor asked if she could help a friend. The expecting twins, but I have no idea about babies. The Name of your friend: George Clooney.

Simpson says, you've written for 30 years, and no application more. Your reputation precedes you, most just call them "Nanny Connie". She has worked for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, she accompanied Blunt, Jessica Alba and Emily, after the children had received, she helped Brooke Shields, which had suffered after the birth of her first child due to postpartum Depression with her second Baby. She is the nanny of Hollywood.

life with newborns and small children is a life full of questions and uncertainties. A Baby in the car seat strapped in? Sounds easy. But how, exactly, must now run the belt? The straps sit in the right place? And the small head dangles not too much back and forth? This is hard enough as it is, if it is prominent. But if Hollywood Stars are parents, add to this: the Paparazzi take a picture of your seat trying, the whole world is watching you parents.

"don't Go out, if the child is tired"

"it is My job, these parents teach, how parents can be like all the others," says Simpson on the phone. It is important to the Stars well to their new role, to prepare, to give them self-confidence: "I'll teach you how to secure a child seat in the car. I can tell you that the child is not out when it is tired, but if it is rested."

Simpsons mother worked as a nurse for the black community of her home town of Mobile, in the U.S. state of Alabama. Already as a little girl, Simpson accompanied visit to your house. She speaks with a southern accent, and of himself in the third Person. She talks loud, after the second set is called the caller will alternately "Sweetheart" and "Honey". The children of your customers hot in the conversation, "Little Miss so-and-So". The parents, with whom she has worked, as their sons and daughters.

Simpson says, you place value on authenticity. The you derives from their origins: "If you show up without a penny in the pocket on the door of someone, but so is how you really are, then this is worth more than all the money and all the wealth."

So much and like Simpson, he is also talking about really private Details about the Hollywood celebrities it can not elicit. Of course not. For the famous parents and their famous kids Simpsons confidentiality is likely to be an equally important core competence as the placement of the Seat belt or wrap basic knowledge.

With all the sense of mission, it is not surprising that Simpson has also written a parenting guide, in which she gives a few small insights into the lives of their celebrity clients. "The Nanny Connie Way" ("The Nanny-Connie-method") is the name of the book, on the Cover emblazoned on the diaper of a baby with the saying "Have No Fear", about a glowing quote from Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake. Perhaps the symbiosis of power, the: Connie is silent about the most Private of their customers and, in return, receives well-dosed Details to aid your self-promotion as a celebrity Nanny.

Six years in the case of the Damon family

Nanny Connie a all-round care: Once the Baby is born, call the parents. You time 24 hours a day, seven days a week, sometimes for years. Matt Damon and his wife, for example, wanted to go down that Nanny Connie is available, if you decide to have a second child. You bays Simpson after the birth of her first daughter for six years.

Simpson is not clear, who in the parent-Nanny relationship, the Boss is: "My customers look for me, I was looking for my customers! There were some prominent families from the first series, which I canceled, because they didn't want to engage with your child," says the 60-Year-old. Simpson takes to tell the Hollywood-parents, your opinion, not all are used to from their everyday lives. You had to ban, she says, some to shower your child with toys: "love means sometimes saying no." As Matt Damon's daughter wanted a kids computer, built-in Nanny, Connie a with your. Out of a cardboard box.

One of the main themes of your work is: normality. All babies have the same basic needs, regardless of the Status of the parents. Especially the Hollywood mothers, for their careers, the appearance plays a big role, it must wean even count the calories. "Who wants to breast-feed, you can delete the word diet from their vocabulary," writes Simpson in her book.

To 257 families she stopped count

what tips are not, you are. "The Knowledge of how to deal with newborn babies, was always there. There was nothing wrong with it, how people used to tackle the things. But it is at some point gone out of fashion. I have made it my mission, this ancient Knowledge back to life."

rich, Nanny Connie is not become with your work, she says, at least. Specifically about money, you don't want to talk but, only as much as she reveals that When she started as a Nanny, calculated 65 dollars a day. Now you are orienting to a rich Hollywood usual hourly rate. The sun is between 15 and 27 dollars, and in the case of your 24-hour-Job is a daily rate then you would from 360 to 650 US dollars: "I'm more of a settle at the upper end of the salary scale," says Simpson.

Meanwhile, Simpson is 60 years old. The time spent in different families, come slowly to an end, she says. How many families have you cared for in your career, don't know you. "I count about ten years ago, ceased to be." There were 257 families, she says, and adds with a Laugh: "I have a bunch of kids."
