I need a sitter that can work Tuesday-Friday from 3:20-5:30 during the school season and 12:00-5:30 during the summer breaks. This job would entail watching my son, taking the dog out, some light cleaning, helping my son on the potty, making dinners some days, giving medication to my son. My son, Vincent, has a disability called prader-willi which causes delays in speech, fine motor and normal motor control. He falls down and bruises very easily as well. One of my main concerns is his eating habits, you would not be able to 'snack' unless you're willing to share or give him a snack as well, which is monitored very strictly unfortunately. We do have one small dog that's a sweet heart as is my son, she would need to be taken out upon arrival. My son would also need help after school with homework. There is also a lot more that I cannot fit in here, I'm sorry this is so long. Please message me with any questions or if interested!
