Their ideal candidate has experience with ADHD, can assist the boys with their school work (that is likely to be partially virtual this coming school year), and create structure for the family with all the changes happening. They love structure, but have just found it difficult to implement so they are open to suggestions! It's $25/hour gross! The position will begin in September with virtual meetings in the meantime. Apply today!
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
The boys both have ADHD, and if possible, they'd like someone with a background or advanced degree in education. Someone super organized and proactive to help create structure. Someone who can help develop and implement a schedule for the boys and is detail orientated o keep them on track and focused. Someone who can think critically about what needs to be done for the kids, the structures in place already and what they put in place to make sure things are going well. Both parents struggle to set up structure themselves (though they know everyone thrives on it and they are happy to maintain it with the person), but super appreciate and value that structure. Especially with three different school (and moms!) implementation of their work and focus. Someone really active and engaging who can get the boys outdoors as well! Someone who is confident in the kitchen and likes to cook is a huge plus! They try to get Sun Basket for a few meals, so prepping those would be super helpful. Someone physically active and super engaging who can get them out to run around and get fresh air is huge!
The core schedule will be Monday-Friday for after school pick ups 3pm-9pm, Fridays potentially 12-6 PM. There is no announcement about school and they are all at different schools, so they will definitely need the assistance.
