I adore children and have experience with infants, toddlers and children up to 14 years old. I would care for your child as if they were my own. I am a mature, very loving and caring person. I am energetic, patient and would enjoy being active with your child. It's important to interact with children and teach them something every day. Talk to them, give them responsibility; make them feel included (especially when there is more than one child). They all need attention and need to feel important. I teach them respect; to say thank you, no thank you and please. As well as, to respect them back and say you're welcome, etc. A child needs praise. I'll give them positive feedback. If a child has done something wrong, I explain to them why they should not do that again. I will follow your eating and sleeping schedule for the baby. It's important that they are feed and changed frequently so no irritation occurs. In 2006, I took a buy-out from Ford Motor Company, since then I have been enjoying life and giving my love and care to children. I am CPR/First Aid Certified.
