I was a nanny after graduate school and treated children and adolescents as a psychotherapist later on. As a nanny I spent time engaging with the children through play, reading, and doing homework. In addition to interacting with the children I cooked meals, did light cleaning, and drove them to activities, such as karate classes.

The most rewarding part of working with children is definitely when you get to experience the pure joy when they learn something new. To me there will never be anything that tops that moment when something clicks in their minds. You can see the wonder and joy on their faces. It's this moment that keeps bringing me back to childcare. In my experience I have found that the biggest challenged was finding the happy medium between being a child's friend and their disciplinarian. I think it is a fine line and I have been working very hard at perfecting this exact science. For the past five summers I have had the pleasure of working at a xx center in the Poconos. Here I worked with kids of all ages ranging from 7-17. I have also spent 10 years as a coach and volunteer for xx. I have also been a babysitting since I was 13.
