Hello Parents! Caring for children of various ages, personalities, intelligence levels, and health conditions has become a lifestyle for me over the years. Helping young people, (and seniors, too!), on a close up and personal basis has provided them with the care they need while providing me with a sense of purpose and intrinsic enjoyment. Helping to raise three children over a 16 year period yeilded me many experiences and has equipped me with various skills to include: diapering, bathing, grooming, bottle feeding, cooking, serving meals, light housecleaning, laundry, shopping, lunch packing, scheduling the children's appointments and activities, assisting with homework, driving children to and from school, as well as driving them to their school activities and to their doctor and dental appointments, sports activities, and social functions, etc. More detailed experience includes full infant care, potty training, nap and bedtime routines, dispensing medications as instructed by the parents, teaching Read more a child to ride a bike, swim, and read phonetically, playtime at the park and beach, singing songs together, picnics, going to the park and play dates, instructing children in crafts (such as Easter egg dying), teaching budgeting for children with their allowances, how to write thank you letters, teaching petcare, and how to wrap gifts. Have homeschooled two students through grades 7-12 with hands-on teaching as well as overseeing an independent study program. Experience prepping middle school and high school students for theater auditions, procuring musical instruments/lessons, and finding instructors for children to expand their skills in such things as surfing, voice training, Cotillion, table manners, dog training, drivers' education, etc. Have planned birthday parties and sleepovers. Attended parent/teacher conferences, volunteered as a teacher's aid, and have assisted with school projects. Was CPR/first aid certified for 30+ years. Have volunteered as an acting instructor, intern director, makeup artist, and costume procurer for children's theater. I especially love reading to children, art projects, and helping them learn to cook and bake the foods they love to eat! Relationship building is key. There is a balance between fun, instruction, and discipline. Sharing life experiences, feelings, and ideas builds friendship, as well as mutual trust and respect. And of course, an occasional great big belly laugh does everybody a world of good!
