I prefer specific dates over a long term schedule and because I'm a full-time commercial actor, I have a flexible schedule. However, I will only commit to a job if I am 100% sure I will be there (that goes for nannying and my vocation). In the next few months once I am settled into a routine, I will update my profile. Thanks!
I've always cared for others younger (and older) than me. My first paid babysitting experience was for a 2-year-old boy, a 6-year-old girl, and an 8-year-old girl when I was 13 and lived in Hartland, WI. The 6-year-old and I became pen pals and I created a short story book for her. When I moved back to Bucks County, PA, I started High School and my neighbors asked me to intermittently babysit for their 7-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy. Once they moved, I cared for the 4-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy who moved in. However, my favorite experience caring for children was at Camp Discovery. It's a volunteer, overnight camp where high school kids are paired with a child, aged 7-11, for a week. Each kid is abused or neglected and has a social worker. She was my 10/11-year-old girl I cared for two years in a row. She would verbally jab at me and sometimes physically. As a 16-year-old, I had to remind myself not to take her behavior personally; my job was to make this week the best week for her and set an example as her graceful, respectful older counselor. My question still remains: who took more away, the kids or the teen volunteers?
