Currently working with a family for the past 3.5 years. The youngest will be 4 in September. This family also has a 6 yr old. Parents are loving, involved people, dad is a small business owner who is out of town often, and mother is a stay at home mom who had health issues after birth of younger child. Both children will be in school most of the day and mother is at home, so do not need me as much as before, however, they still want me to stay! I would like to work with a family with babies and younger children. I have potty trained both children - boy and girl, worked through some behavior issues, separation anxieties, discovered lice - both kids - twice! Anyway, I think I could be more helpful to another family. As far as the fun stuff, the children have learned colors, numbers, letters, nursery rhymes, dressing oneself, kindness, manners and generally how to be nice people. Of course , it is a team effort between parents and me and I like to follow the families' philosophy on how they want to raise their children.
Prior to this family, I worked with a family with 3 small children, 6mos, 3 yrs and 5 yrs. Three year old had speech issues which were mostly resolved with a team effort from parents, myself and therapist. Both parents were working outside the home majority of the time.
