Reoccuring Job. Looking For Patient, Reliable Babysitter Needed For 1 Child In Ames

Part Time
My son is a sweetheart and a lover, knows his manners and how to follow rules. But he is still a boy AND a kid, so there are the occasional hard times. I have been told by lots of people, lots from his school, that overall he is a very well behaved and it's easy to fall in love with him. Saying that, he is ADHD and has a mild intellectual disability. So sometimes he's just a bit overly hyper, especially if he's excited about something and there are days or times where emotionally he's just not having. Getting frustrated, sad, mad all that. Also there are times he doesn't always understand something the same way that others might. So sometimes you have to simplify it or find a different way to explain something. But in total he's an amazing kid, love his cars and monsters and everything a little boy would. Our ideal caregiver: Someone understanding and open. Works well the each child differently. And can communicate on anything need, such as scheduling, problems or concerns with anything. Additional needs include having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. We could use help with homework or curriculum assistance. Looking for a caregiver for my 7-year-old.
