The kids are typically very well behaved but they will push the rules if you let them (especially the 5-year-old). The 5-year-old also likes to pester the 8-year-old to the point of upsetting him. Our ideal caregiver: Someone who is patient with the kids, can keep kids occupied without using electronics the entire day, who can enforce rules and help motivate kids to eat healthy.. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son, 5-year-old daughter, and 8-year-old son. Flexible start date.
