Currently looking for an flexible babysitter for our 9. 5-month-old boy. He is extraordinarily independent and mobile. Loves about anything you feed him, and does not sit still for anything. We are raising our son to be empathetic and on a positive discipline model. We comfort him when he is upset because it teaches him how to regulate his emotions. We don't do sleep training. We have a Doberman Pincher named Athena who is our son's protector and best friend.
