Dear host family,
I have experience taking care of children from eight months to 10 years old, both girls and boys. In 2010 I took care of Francisco, my nephew, who was 3 years old, and Juan Sebastian, 10 years old. The experience was great. I woke up the children, we had breakfast together, I helped them to get dressed, to go to the pool or to play in the park because they liked it.
Afterwards, I took care of my cousin, who loved to watch me make plasticine figures and then try to make them on his own. Sofia was a very responsible child so I would help her with her homework at school and when she finished we would go to the park to eat ice cream. Sometimes, I would dress up with her and we would play make-up or bake cookies, because what she liked the most was to surprise her mother with chocolate cookies made by herself.
On the other hand, I liked my cousin's daughter Victoria's experience. She was a six-month-old baby and I had to prepare her bottles, feed her, help her develop the skills that a baby of her age starts to learn, such as turning from side to side to explore, entertain her with toys or help her to sleep.
