I have rasied 4 children and many pets with my husband; each child was unique. We had one gifted child, one with multiple learning disabilities, one with medical problems and one "normal" child. I have babysat for friends children ranging from infant to eight years old. I was also a para professional at Hartley Elementary and the Jr. High and have done some tutoring. Many children played at our house where I gave pony care and riding lessons and 4-H dog show training practice. My kids were active in 4-H, swimming, music, Tae kwon do and raising puppies, ponies and chickens. I read to my children helped them with homework and encouraged them to do a lot of reading, writing, arts and crafts. I homeschooled our children for some of their schooling. I love children, I love working with them, playing with them, encouraging them, and helping them discover their gifts and talents. Of all of the jobs I've had just being a good Mom was the best. All of my children are grown and as of yet we have no grand children so working part time as a nanny would be fun.
