Well I work with a friend of mine due to the fact we have been working together since forever and we have been friends since Kindergarten. We both love kids because we both have younger siblings, she has a younger brother and I have a younger brother and sister. Although we are both still in school and are still young we love to help families with a flexible schedule due to schooling and in 2019 I am due to be a camp counselor this year I am a Lit or leader in training on certain days during the summer. But we do love to give parents time off and away from there children or pets. We also do house cleaning, in case that is also needed.
