My 4-year-old son chase is very active so anything hands on works for him. My 4-month-old loves to be held. We sing to him and talk to him and I read books to both . Our ideal caregiver: I would like for my ideal caregiver to be hands on and knowledgeable of child development. . Additional needs include light housekeeping. We could use help with homework or curriculum assistance. My schedule may vary.
