I am 32 years old with a BS in International Business and a Double Major in Spanish and Marketing. While studying towards a Master's Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, I was a Substitute Teacher for a calendar school year, grades K-12. I relocated to Portland, OR to observe and study a more specific form of educational theory, and I became a nanny to a wonderful family for 6 months for a 4-year-old and 2 years old. I worked full time, 45-50 hours each week. I was responsible for two meals each day for both children, naps, transportation to/from school for their son-1/2 day, and their daughter's music and me classes and participation, coordination of play dates, all activities-the children were not allowed to watch any TV, helped with homework for their son, daily housework and chores, laundry and sheets for the children, and occasionally I would stay overnight when the parents would travel out of town. I had the children participate in some chores also such as cleaning up after lunch to help establish their routine. They loved to spray the cleaner on the table-We had to rotate it between days because it was actually so fun to clean! Who would have known? We had so much fun together and did lots of educational outings to museums, farms, fire stations, zoo, parks and libraries-almost daily basically anything I could swing into learning that did not seem like we were learning. The children were like little sponges and I made sure to get their input into what they wanted to do as well. Mostly, we played, laughed and just had a blast together! We also focused on imagination development and built forts-which were always a huge hit such as: pretending we were in the forest and bit by a bear, and had to call in the rescue helicopter and doctor; and we (flash forward-now the dr.'s) bring in our med kits and fix the bear bite; or, our fort is now a pretty little doll house and, "oh no, we accidentally had a kitchen fire because we were cooking without an adult!" "what do we do?" "call 911!" Then we all dress up in our firefighter outfits and the little girl slides down her little indoor slide which has now (our fort) been transformed into a fire station. When I arrived, the 4-year-old would still ask for a diaper to poop into. He would then go into the den and sit and do his business. The 2-year-old also was not anywhere near potty-trained. I was able to break this habit through positive behavior recognition and skills training methods and I am happy to say, I fully broke their son of his pooping in a diaper behavior. Their daughter also began to follow I call the, "monkey see-monkey do" and is pooping on her little girl potty. Not by herself, but nonetheless, the strides have been made.
