For more than 25 years I have cared for the children of many families, including my own son and daughter. For more than 10 years caring for children has been my profession and sole source of income. It is something that I have a natural talent for. I am extremely patient, have a sense of humor, and have the capacity for the hardest part of child rearing which is earning the sincere respect of children void of fear. All the children that I have cared for have always respected me because I take my time to understand their moods and explain to them why it is necessary to sometimes do things that they would rather not, such as leave the park, or turn off the television and go to sleep. Every child is different and every moment of the day is different for them, so it is important to have the ability to read into a child's needs at those times in order to best communicate. Like any relationship, communication is the key.

I have been caring for children for about 18 years now, ranging from newborn to around 6 years old. I have done light cooking and cleaning, helped with homework, followed the child's schedule (which I believe is extremely important to keep a routine for children), and given baths. I've kept the children entertained doing crafts, playing games, playing outdoors, etc without keeping them in front of the tv constantly.
