Our grandson is a pretty well behaved kid, especially in view of the his recent and tragic circumstances being in non-family foster care for a year and a half, unreliable and non-commital parents and losing the house/home he knew. Working on his tidiness, manners, study habits and addiction to games/devices, but general a sweet kid nonetheless with a good sense of humor. Two teenage part-time daughters are very helpful with him, but would not be involved with/ relevant to the caregiving.... just for him. Our ideal caregiver: We are now fostering a grandchild and will be adopting him due to his parents lising him to the state for mostly addiction issues. It has been hard for him to be losing contact with his parents. However, we raised our children and are nearing retirement and looking for a loving, experienced and reliable caretaker to watch him in our home to give us a break periodically- some Saturday evenings, an occasional overnight and a couple or few multi-day trips a year (most likely to our second home in Florida). Additional needs include meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 10-year-old son. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
