Jennifer S.

We are looking for a cheerful optimistic nanny for our 8 year old son. He is passionate about real life work and loves to do projects, chores, learn about computers and anything electrical. He does have some challenges which includes ADHD, anxiety, and OCD, but currently he is doing very well and is generally a joy to be around. His challenging behaviors emerges when he feels anxious and this will lead to refusal to do certain activities (i.e. leave the house, refusal to eat, refusal to brush teeth). However, when the nanny offers reassurance, kindness, calm, and patience, he can work through his anxieties. He enjoys gardening, cooking, reading, and doing projects in his art studio. He has both a therapist and school tutor who will be meeting with him regularly. We are looking for an engaging, high energy, positive and friendly nanny who is willing to understand his fears and work with him to push limits in a comfortable and joyful manner.
