The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone who is fairly adaptable and willing to learn the family's particular approach to praise and discipline for the kids, especially as the boy is in therapies and they have particular strategies and approaches for him. Someone who is CPR certified and has experience with these age groups. An open and flexible approach is best as they learn the flow of the family. Someone willing to help prepare and clean up from meals for the family in the morning which are typically light and easy. A proactive and communicative sitter is ideal. Someone who likes things tidy and organized is likely to be a better fit.
