My most recent childcare experience was wonderful. I helped a mother raise her three amazing girls. I did everything from the daily routine of school, homework, prepared meals, drove them to and from school and appointments on many occasions, light cleaning, nighttime and morning routines, stayed overnight several days a week, did many crafts, swam, read books, helped greatly with their many pets, ran errands, and traveled with them. I did not consider it a job. To me it was an extension of my own family and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I have enjoyed my time as babysitter/nanny as well being able to have on the side my professional background. I love to take care of babies my specialty.. Newborn +, teenagers sometimes can be difficult to supervise when they have bad behaviors and can't listen. thats when my friendly positive and mature attidute comes out and deep breath to understand that each teenager have a different way to see life and they most of the time think and behave like "adults" and they want you to treat them as "adult" it can be tricky but not impossible! The main key is communication, listen to the children's without taking them for granted.
