We have a wonderful opportunity in the UWS with a loving and sweet 12-year-old boy. The family is looking for someone equally warm, proactive, and loving who has experience with children with ADHD and anxiety. The ideal candidate is committed, understanding, and calm who can encourage him to overcome challenges and take them head on and with confidence. It's $25-27/hour gross for 12 hours/week guaranteed. This position will begin as soon as they find the right fit, with interviews taking place immediately. They would love to have the SmartSitter shadow their current sitter to learn the ropes and get to know the boy more.
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone who has experience with behavioral issues and struggles is ideal. Someone fun and engaging who will bond with him and want to be with him, engaging him in fun and meaningful activities. An animated and really confident personality. Someone who can help him foster friendships with kids his age as he tends to gravitate towards adults more. Someone who can remove their own emotions from the difficult situations and doesn't get flustered easily. Someone who is proactive and can take initiative to help out if it needs to be one.
