My last job I took care of two kids. One was a boy with autism. I got him ready for school, fead him breakfast, lunch and dinner. Helped with his therapy. The other one was a little girl. I spent the day with her making different activities. I also helped get her ready for school by teaching her spelling, math, and art. Also I kept the house nice and clean. When the parents would go out of town I spent the day and night with the kids taking care of them. When summer came around I would find activities to keep the kids happy and busy. I spent 5 years with this family. I had to move on because the kids are old enough for the parents to take care of themselves.
