I come from a family of ten children where i was basically the eldest , i was the sister-mother type , therefore learned childcare since i was eight years old. I was taking care of my little brothers and sisters even after my mother had came to America for a better future, i do not approve of children taking care of other children of course, but i did learn a lot about myself and my capabilities as a human being as well as how to deal with different children of close ages and different characters, successfully. I love children and have two myself. Now already grownup. One became a TV Director and the other just finished his Bachelor Degree in Engineering I am a very proud "mama" here I am the ''believer Type " i believe in child potential. And i know that with proper care and respectful guidance any child would be able to reach his or her full potential physically and mentally! This is not only words, just to illustrate my "Philosophy" i did not accept a young unexperienced teacher's believe that my youngest boy had learning disabilities, and i did challenged her "veridic" by taking upon the task of teaching my child how to read during the fallowing 3 weeks spring vacation, and to make the long story short, my son finished his hight school with honors as the best writer of the year at Port Richmond Hight School. Hellooo!
