Single Dad with 2 Teens & 3 Dogs - Plantation, FL
Posted by Nicholas R. on 9/22/2016
Start date: Flexible
- 908 miles away (Plantation, FL)
- $10.00 - $15.00 per hour
- 2 children (Junior High)
PM care/pickups/supervision, w/overnights/AM school shuffle when Dad travels for work (at times weekly for 1-3 nights). Weekend stays 3-4 times per year as well. Prefer a nanny who cooks and can keep Dad from buying takeout. Must like dogs...1 large and 2 small here (light housekeeping for the dog hair as well). My daughter (12) is sweet (non-hyper ADD) and needs help staying on track w/homework and chores. She needs an educated mother-figure to help her navigate her teen years. My son (16) is a typical teen. He is self-studies but needs reminders to stay on track w/chores/bed on time etc. He respects those who treat him as a young adult, not a child. Both were adopted into US in 2008, so an understanding of older-child abandonment issues are helpful as well. These kids need structure, but harsh discipline only backfires given their abandonment issues. Most importantly, I need a polite person w/firm boundaries - an an occasional thick skin. Thanks!
