I have worked with children from infant to 17. I have done everything from cleaning to changing a dipper. I take the children to thier events schduled. I have stayed periods of times with my children while the parents were out of town. I love to cook. I am a healthy eater also. I am strict with rules, but I know how to have fun. I have had many parents comment on how they believe that their children listen to me better then they listen to them many of times. I help the kids with their homework. I get them ready for bed. I can do anything that is expected of me to do for the satisfaction and safety of anothers child. I do not treat them any less then I would my own children if I had any, but I do have experience with my younger siblings. There is only one recommendation I ask for; that is if I do have to stay with the children on sunday mornings they will attend church with me. I have taken the children I have watched in the past.
