I am a mother of 7 grown sons, which started for me, in 1984. I am also a veteran home educator of over 25 years. The qualities of honesty and integrity, love for children, patience, and respect for their feelings and ideas, is extremely important to me, and something I am purposeful in practicing. I have worked conscientiously over a period of 35 years to gain knowledge, wisdom and discernment, learn self-control and how to be calm, even during especially stressful times, with husband, my children, other people, and other people's children. This mindset helps me guide my choices, actions and decisions when involved with someone else's children, so that I am able to maintain a steady demeanor of understanding and compassion in all situations. I am firm, but loving, in how I deal with behavioral issues. I no longer have a CPR cert, but I could get re-certified if Read more need be. I also had first aid certs. quite a few times, and can also re-cert if wanted, although I am already quite adept at handling any kind of emergency concerning babies or adults. Having 7 children educated me in emergencies.
