We are a very busy Family and like to have fun. Our children are strong-willed and confident so I need someone that can have fun but be firm and assertive as well . Knowing when to pick their battles and what's important to expect and when it's ok to let some things slide . Like when safety is concerned it's always a serious matter but sometimes kids just need someone to understand what's going on with them and why they may not be behaving perfectly. for someone who is willing to learn and grow with our family as there's a lot going on but progress not perfection is always on the forefront of my mind. Someone who is willing to learn and possibly read a book or two on the different approaches we want to use to guide our children to adulthood . Instilling manners , respect and most of all kindness is most important. Thank you !. Our ideal caregiver: Need someone who understands a child's mind and can provide gentle correction to bad behavior but also keep them on task with activities and staying busy. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. We could use help with structuring activities. Looking for a caregiver for my 1-year-old son, 3-year-old daughter, and 6-year-old daughter. Flexible start date.
