I started a small farm this fall with my partner, and right now am producing organically grown winter greens in unheated greenhouses.
I learned to love kids through babysitting, starting when I was about 14 (ten years ago). I had regular babysitting clients all through high school and the beginning of college, but I have not been sitting for the past three or four years because I have been busy with graduate school, starting a farm, and other jobs.
I have experience caring for boys and girls ages 2 - 12, and up to three children at a time. I have had three separate clients who were autistic boys (ages 2 - 9). I am comfortable nannying for children between the ages of 2 - 12. I love animals and spent seven months in 2010 as a livestock apprentice, so I am happy to care for house pets, horses or other animals.
I have no pets or children of my own.
I believe in supporting the parents' philosophy when caregiving, but when in doubt about the parents' desires, I use my own judgement. I encourage children to eat healthy snacks, play outside, read books, take naps, do their homework, say "please" and "thankyou", and eat their vegetables. I discourage consumption of sweets, excessive tv/movies/internet/videogames, complaining, violence, and rude behavior. I prefer to discuss disciplinary actions with parents before my first job, in order to learn what works best for their children (e.g. do you use time-outs or withold a favorite toy as punishment, or is there something else that you find more effective?)
