1. How Do You Prepare For A Virtual Sitting?

The consensus of most parents is that they’re tired, they’re out of ideas, and they’ve got too much on their plate. They’re looking to you to take charge of their kids—even if only for an hour. Your role as a professional is to take initiative with what you do with them.

Get Creative!

Challenge yourself to come up with unique ways to have fun and make the most of a video chat interaction. The more you invest in making your time with the kids something they enjoy, the more chances you’re likely to have additional work opportunities with the family. Whether that’s more virtual sittings or eventual in-home care as our public health improves.
