I'm 25 years old and parent to a sweet 21-month-old boy. I've had years of unpaid experience with caring for kids of all ages, since as a teen I helped my parents foster sibling groups and eventually took care of an infant on my own for two years when I was 19. With my own son from the start I've been drawn to gentle parenting, which focuses on relationship/communication and respecting the child as an equal and whole human being capable of understanding and making good choices. I have a free but super engaged approach to childcare, with intentional eye contact, verbal communication and lots of physical affection! I'm looking for a full-time job I could include my son in (he's with me Mon-Thur). I'm also willing to do once-off babysitting on weekends. I'd be happy with $17-20 an hour, depending on ages and number of children.
