The Ideal Sitter for this Job
It's important that the adult is in charge, and kids aren't running things. Basic manners and politeness and respect -especially to adults- is important to the family. No means no, and the parents try to raise the kids with love and boundaries, and help them resolve conflicts with kindness. If you have a background in education, art, or art history, this is a plus!
