My little one is very intelligent, creative, polite and fun. He will only fight you when it comes to showering and brushing his teeth; it may also take him a minute to get motivated to do homework but once he does he usually has no trouble completing it. We also have two large dogs and a few cats that all take their turns coming into the house but spend a lot of their time outside as long as the weather is nice. Additional needs include having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Looking for a caregiver for my 8-year-old son. My schedule may vary.
