What moment are you most proud of as a caregiver?
In my time as a caregiver, I have had many proud and rewarding moments with the children I have cared for. One thing in particular that I am most proud of was when I worked with a 4-year-old non-verbal Autistic child and taught him to say his first word "up". Using Applied Behavioral Analysis I was able to teach him say the /u/ sound and then the /p/ sound. Putting the two sounds together was half the battle, but once he was able to learn the meaning behind that sound, he was able to communicate using a word for the first time in his life.
When you work for someone and they appreciate the things you do for them. I also go above and beyond and sometimes people don't appreciate the extra things I do.
When they have told me that I have done a good job with their children because I teach them to write and read in math, or generalizing in care, at home when I help them and they tell me that I did a good job.
The moment when you enter the family's home and your little one runs to you with excitement and hugs. Not only is it a rewarding feeling, but its validates your caregiving qualities to parents when they see how much their children are connected to you.
I feel most proud when my work helps the child along with their development, and at the same time produces appreciation from his/her parents.
As a caregiver, my proudest moments are seeing children grow into beautifully amazing people and to know that I had a part in that brings me nothing but pure joy.
When through encouragement, patience and persistence a struggling child has conquered a challenge and grown emotionally, cognitively, socially or physically. Then it's celebration time!!
What really touch me is when a child really lights up and find something unique to him or her and shares that with me. Last year a little 3 year old boy I was caring for asked me: "Miss Cate are you a kid?" He was appreciating being fully in the moment and sensed that I was too.
I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to be with a client of mine in the hospital when he passed away at the age of 105 years old I got to hold his hand as he went in to the presence of God I sang him him such as blessed as Sherwood's Jesus is mine the family was very grateful since they were out of town and his death came quickly
Wow! That brings tears to my eyes & joy to my heart. What you did is so very special and will never be forgotten. You helped usher him into the presence of the King. No words can describe how awesome that is. You not only brought a smile to the family ‘s face but to our Heavenly Father’s as well. Well done, well done.
I learn new things every day, kids are very intelligent and observant. I would love to remember a childhood and happy moment. I love being part of this!! ;)
The moments that make me the proudest is when I see that a child feels completely safe with my care, and the trust me and they have the freedom to explore knowing that I am right there for them while they explore.
I am the most proud when I find myself working with a child or student and seeing them progress developmentally in whatever it may be; vocabulary, cognitively, physically, motor skills, hobbies, even potty training!
I am most proud when a child invites me do something outside the usual evening sitting, like their birthday party, or to go trick-or-treating. It makes me feel like I'm more than just a caregiver, they enjoy spending time with me as a person. It is the best feeling!
I absolutely LOVE when children reach milestones, such as standing on their own, saying new words, walking without any help, and even eating new and different foods!
Not a moment, but a great length of time. Since beginning sitting at age 12, I have been a long time sitter of several families and have maintained contact with them. Creating a bond with these families and, in a sense, becoming a part of those families is wonderful.
when I see them develop little by little in learning and speaking as well as understanding good and wrong.
Being able to see the children I've taken care off grow up and start their first day of school is so rewarding, and I'm blessed to have great references from all the families I've taken care off.
As a caregiver I take pride in the achievements of children. I am most proud in those moments when I see a child overcome any circumstance and be happy doing what they love most.
I love being able to be a role model to children, teach them new things.
My most precious and proud time is when the children in my care have confidence and are proud of themselves with what they have learned and want to continue learning! Their smiles of joy make everything worth while as a nanny! :)
when i take care the kids and they give me a big hugs or a big smile, it make me feel proud the my job, because i feel they like me or enjoy they time with me.
When one of the babies that took care of, me made a drawing of the mothers day, because they considered myself part of the family, that is the moment that gives me so much pride of being a nanny :)
I guess my greatest accomplishment was following my heart. I care about my family. I will do the best for my family. I am very compassionate and understanding person. I feel other's pain. I am willing to help them. I also value my time so I can organize a day what I can accomplish.
Being a helpful hand to families is a great blessing!
When I see my patient happy, comfortable and trusting me. When I see that they are happy and enjoying my company.
Some of the moments I love the most as a caregiver is seeing the kids learn and grow, whether it be sign language as an infant or learning to say the alphabet. I love to be able to be a part of the learning process of a child!
How well i get along with kids and to leave them saying how much they want to spend time with me! i love caring for little ones! They are all so awesome and special!
The first family I worked for was on of the worst experiences of my life, I was fourteen and trying to help my family out so I took the first job offered. It was for a pretty wealthy family in my area that was known to be a bit standoffish, but I didn't let that deter me as the pay would've been pretty hefty. The had a 5 year old boy who was definitely spoiled and an 8 year old boy with autism. The eldest was non-verbal and had this tick where he would peel his cuticles off his nails whenever he was anxious. His parents didn't really believe in his diagnosis and constantly tried to make him do things that he just couldn't comprehend. As it was my first job, I wasn't sure of how to deal with it so instead of reinforcing the negative stigma around him I continued to care for him like I did his brother. I gave him basic lessons in language and reading and hoped that his was absorbing it. My proudest moment to this date was when he said his first sentence after a particularly hard day. To this date I think I'm most proud when I can watch a child grow and reach milestones that seem so far away. It's very rewarding to know that you make a positive impact on their childhood in a sometimes not so positive circumstance.
It’s tuff when you get a job that the parents don’t truly appreciate everything you do. I’m happy you didn’t give up and found the positives. I’m sure the boys still remember all you did for them.
When I get my good morning hug and kiss for the day and get my good night hug and kiss for the night!!
As a caregiver, I'm very proud and happy when I take care of kids and after a couple days, once I open the door the kids start being happy and screaming my name, jumping on me and hugging me, being excited to spend the rest of the day with me. this makes me think that I truly did my best to get to this point.
I cared for a 7th grade girl who ONLY ever ate bagels & mac & cheese! Period. After a few weeks in my charge...she was eating fresh peaches, strawberries, chicken & cheese corn tortilla tacos, roasted vegetables. Oh & also turkey meatballs with her pasta.
When one of my kids wrote a paper on how much she loved me. It made me cry and realize that I am helping to shape these young kids and it pushes me to be a better role model.
I am most proud when they recognize that they did something wrong and they try their hardest to fix the problem, such as apologizing to a peer.
A great moment I am proud of is the children liking what I make for them to eat for dinner and devour it! There are also other great moments when they learn something extra curricular that I teach them (like baking) or when they get enthusiastic about reading classic books like The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe and it starts a trend to love reading.
I think to be a great caregiver, a person needs to be caring and patient and courteous to the loved one you will be caring for. And I am most proud when I have made the one I'm caring for feel safe and comfortable and happy with the care I give them.
I feel most proud and blessed when I can make a difference in a child's life and as a result their family. I have been a nurse for many years so this may come in the form of just making them smile or giggle, helping them tolerate a painful procedure of nurturing a family whose child is dying. Each experience has touched my life and believe I have touched their's as well.
I have cared and taught many children through the years and have experienced all kinds of behavior. When I look back I think the proudest moment I have had was when I could help an extremely upset child become calm again due to seperation anxiety. TO the point that the child was willing to do a craft with me that I had brought to the home!
The moment that made me the most proud ws when the elderly man that I took care of on hospice responded to my love for him. His family said that he hadn't been out of bed in over a month, but he got out for me a let me take him out on the porch to gaze at God's beautiful nature. He pasted 3 days later. I was blessed to remind him of the glory of God.
My most proud moments as a caregiver is knowing my family appreciates my help & kindness when leaving me with their precious little ones. I love kids & mostly caring for them when a family entrusts you with their child/children & takes the time out to let you know your doing a great job, that's a moment of proudness. When the kids face light up when they see you daily is in fact a proud moment as well .
my moment most proud of as a caregiver is when the kids that I've watched,start picking spanish words. it just melt my heart, they are just so cute and curious for the world.:)
For me regardless of who you are caring for child or adult one thing I loved and still do is knowing that you are making a difference and by the time your shift is over when I turn to tell them that I Will see them next time and to have a good day or night that smile they have on your face it's just let's you know that you are really making a difference..
Moved to another state to help a family care for their newborn daughter as both parents worked in their careers.
Watching them learn and grow as their unique personality starts to show. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing a child you've cared for grow into their own person; it's a truly magical moment.
The moment I am most proud of as a cargiver for seniors is to see them smile and laugh when the are feeling depressed and sad. It makes my heart smile to see this...
When I see smile and happiness on the face my patient .
When i see a smile on the child's face and when the family is satisfied with the work i have done
I am most proud of all of the love and close relationships I get to experience with the families I work with.
I am proud when I see the results of my work in a child, like walking, talking, eating with spoon etc., just the development of my work.
Just left a family, who think they are the only ones with a knack at parenting, so instead of seeing I was helping, they decided I wasn't the right match. Careful with that.
I hear you there, it is so frustrating. God has bigger and better things for you, He did for me. I just had to ‘let it go’ and move on. So happy with this new Ohana now. Don’t give up
Making sure the kids or pets are save.
When the kids I have looked after smile :)
the moment I am most proud of as a caregiver is seeing the happiness on the childs/childrens faces that makes me know I have done my best to make them feel happy and cared for with as their caregiver/nanny
When I have made life easier and more enjoyable for a family (particularly mommy)! I have helped families learn how to grow and change as they add new additions and how to help their little ones develop and master communication which is always the key to a more harmonious home!
When an eight year old girl asked if she could be my sister, it was a wonderful moment that I will cherish forever.
The moment I am most proud of is my integrity and my ability to get along with everyone. I love to treat my clients like family. I am dependable and love being around others.
i am proud of , i am not only caregiver iam also loving person too , i love the kids just like my own !!!
One day the dad of the little girl whom I took care of, told me the ease and comfort he now feels after I started working for them. He confessed the level of stress he felt coming home from work and even while working from home. Such acknowledgement made me feel proud of my work and excited for the growth and bond developed with his precious little girl.
Taking care of a 2 1/2 year old girl named Allison for six months - we bonded and it was hard when her parents moved from my area.
My husband was diagnosed with early-onset Azlheimer's at the age o 53. I kept him home with live-in care until he passed away at 58.
A little girl I babysit, who is 3, refused to tell me bye when I had to leave because she didn't want me to go. That is one moment I am proud of because I felt so loved and wanted.
Each day knowing the difference my roll is making..
That the people I work with quickly have me want and say that I am very good at my job, because I always give the best of me and much more!
When you have made a lesson plan that every child in the classroom benefits from.
Getting a picky eater to eat peas.
I will try fix behavior by tailking
If there is bad behavior I would give the child two choices and if they still will not listen I would put them on a timeout. The time of the timeout would depend of the age of the child. If the child is three they would have three minute timeout
One joy of being a nanny is that you are most likely to be the one who gets to witness a first step or first word.. My proud moment is after teaching a toddler how to use the potty is getting to see them do it on their own.
My proudest moment as a caregiver was when I realized my "silly" teachings about nature have reflected in the children as a love and respect of all creatures furry, slimy, scaly, and feathered.
I am always the most proud when I am able to make a child smile. It fills my heart with joy to see them happy and I can't help but feel proud.
Seeing all the happy faces of the children during my time with them.
My most proud moment as a caregiver the moment when the parents give a sigh of relief when they find someone who can help them out and truly become part of the family.
The moment I am most proud of as a caregiver is when a relationship is developed with a child , and you can clearly tell that they trust you as a role model and respect you.
As a care giver, I'm most proud when a child I'm working with learns something new! I particularly love teaching letters, numbers, basic reading skills, and (most importantly) KINDNESS! The most fulfilling moment is when the information is absorbed and applied in daily life.
My most proud moment as a caregiver is getting the child to do small things that the parents are having difficulty having their child do.
I was a nanny for 2 little boys from 2 different families on different days. One day the 5 year old asked me, "Who do you love the most, me or the other boy you take care of?" I told him, "My heart is big enough to love you both equally" he replied, with a big smile on his face, "That was a good answer Nanny!"
When in a teaching phase it just clicks with a child and they have a "aha" moment.
when Alex, at 10 months old kissed me on my cheek. He was 2 1/2, when I started caring for him.
With the family I currently live with, I witnessed the baby's first steps, first words, and many other amazing moments
I stayed with a family that had a tragedy that happened inside the home when I was off duty. I took care of two children and stayed late everyday.
The moment I was most proud as a caregiver I was the first to be offered to take care of my aunt's 11 month old daughter. I felt like I was beaming with pride that I managed to keep her mind off her parents being gone, entertained her, reassured , and calm enough to feed. A babies first time away from their parents is never easy, I'm glad I had been taught the right skills on how to deal with children from my mother which helped me overall achieve this proud moment of mine.
So many. Seeing a child master learning like swimming. Abcs. And saying please and thank you on own after learning. Sharing with others willingly after encouraged especially with toddlers
The moment I'm most proud of as a caregiver is my dedication to provide exceptional care for the child/children in my care. I strive to go above and beyond to ensure that the child/children are cared for and the parent's expectations are met regarding the care for their child/children.
The first time I did an overnight for a family, I was up before everyone with breakfast ready, got everyone to school on time, had fun playtime with the other kids that day, a great lunch, and got everyone to nap together.That day was literally perfect, and I was fortunate enough to get another perfect day for the last overnight as well!
When I was a nanny for three kids on a vacation, I would take them to the beach and show them all of the shells. They learned all about marine life and would show me shells and start repeating back facts we are learned the day before. Training more marine biologists!
My proudest moment as a caregiver is when I not only help my residents but I help the families as well. Peace of mind can be hard when someone else is taking care of your loved one. I would do small things for my residents to make them feel at home, sitting with them talking about their life and their families. Playing a game with them whether it be cards or bingo anything to make them laugh or have some fun. I would also curl or style some of my residents hair to make them feel good and pretty. Not only did my residents enjoy some of these things so did their families. I would have their families tell me that they appreciated my extra help. Seeing my residents smile and be happy is one of the proudest moments of the job.
The moment I am most proud of was when one of the children I cared for came home from school and shared with me that they had got a 100 on their test, because of me! We had studied endlessly for that test!
Working in child care is very rewarding. I love watching the children's interest in learning grow everyday and watching them improve on different things! I'm personally proud of everything I do in child care. Working in a daycare, I love watching the children grow. It's amazing being able to watch a child grow everyday and being there from when they're a beautiful baby to very kind and smart school aged boy/girl!
When a child learn something new and reaches a goal that they have set for themselves seeing that smile of accomplishment on their faces I love it
My proudest moment as a care giver is the smiles on children faces when they learn something new. I'm proud because I taught them that.
It makes me happy/proud when the kids i babysit for rush to the door to greet me. it makes my heart melt :)
I will respect how the family wishes to handle their loved one's behavior and be consistent with their requests.
Witnessing the baby I've been looking over since she was three months old take her first steps!
One of my proudest moments caring for children is when a child I cared for that did not have her own parents, contacted me 20 years later to thank me for all that I did for her.
The moment my kiddo makes a significant accomplishment by completing a task independently, and seeing how proud they are of themselves!
When I was able to communicate with a non-verbal toddler with Downs Syndrome by using American Sign Language.
I am most proud whenever all parties involved are happy children,parents and I(myself) are pleased with a job well done.
i have a very strict but understanding approach to bad behavior i will not get physical with a child ever but i will talk them through why what they did is wrong and the real world persuasions
Use an Intangible Reward: Some kids respond to incentives for the right behavior, like "I have a surprise/secret to tell you, once you go upstairs and brush your teeth." Use Humor and Make It a Teaching Moment: When a kid misbehaves, try to see something silly or humorous about the situation. Kids usually laugh at themselves and it becomes a teaching moment. For example, I might say, "You mean you tried to squeeze your sister until she squealed and popped like a balloon? Yikes! Maybe you should ask her if she's OK and say, 'sorry' for squeezing her so tight? "That's it! Good. Big boys have to be gentle; she's a little girl not A BALLOON."
When you make a difference in someone's life!
I love it when the child gives a spontaneous hug declaring their vibes.
I would say a good moment for me is when a child I have cared for remembers to say please and thank you with out being told .I also had kids help another kid and say kind things like do you need a hug that has me wrote all over it.
There is no specific moment, all of them make me proud. However, watching the kids grow and develop is amazing. It is very special that the parents allow me to be part of them growing. Watching the child achieve a goal that we have been working towards is the best. For example, when watching an 11 month old we worked on infant/toddler sign language, saying "more" and "thank you". After constant work and positive reinforcement it shortly became a natural , everyday thing. The moment I realize how far they've come, and how much they are developing I feel a huge amount of Joy for both the child and I.
Seeing the children I watch thrive and learn new things while in my home.
My favorite part about being a caregiver in the positive influence I have on the children. I love seeing when they are able to express themselves in a positive manner.It is also fantastic to see them cause concern for other and their feelings.
Though through my nursing career, I have had the opportunity and pleasure of working with all ages, it wasn't until I became a mother that the pediatric population became my favorite age group to offer care. In that vein, I can't say as I am proud of a singular moment, but rather, my ability to help create many different moments or memories that, perhaps, a child will carry with them for the rest of his/her life. It is very humbling to be a part of this process, in knowing how a child eventually becomes a product of what they live and the memories they own.
