Someone who can take initiative and really take charge; a sitter who doesn't need a ton of direction. Someone who has street smarts and is organized. An active and energetic sitter who wants to engage the kids both in and outdoors. Experience with these age groups is a plus while experience with ADHD is a MUST! Someone who is comfortable assisting with homework and can assist with her school work. A warm and caring personality with a bright disposition. Someone who knows when to be flexible and when to let something go and work around an issue with the boy.
