    The Ideal Sitter for this Job

    It's important that you're a really good listener and that you're sensitive to the toddler. He requires a sort of nuanced attention. You don't have to have a prescriptive idea of being with a toddler, sing song-y voice, that sort of thing. Sometimes he'll need four visits before he warms up. Once he sits on your lap or takes you by the hand, you're good! Let him lead in terms of affection and try not to be prescriptive in terms of activities. (If he hands you a xylophone, ask him what we can do with it instead of taking it and playing it right away.) Let him take ownership of his discovery of things. The family is looking for someone who is mature and someone who can understand that it is difficult for mom to be leaving her little one in the care of someone who she is just meeting and that it's an act of trust for her. CPR/First Aid is a must.
