- Promotion of the time-out technique for dealing with inappropriate behaviour (p173). I've worked with enough children in my career and read enough literature on child behaviour and development to know that time-out is an ineffective, overused and misunderstood tool that adults resort to when they have no clue otherwise how to deal with their child's actions (thank you Super Nanny). In many cases it's the parents who need time out from the situation to cool down and gather their composure. I'm not about to tell anyone how to parent, but I will say that when a child is sent to time-out to 'think about their behaviour', you can be guaranteed they're thinking of anything BUT that.
Hi there! My name is Grace, I'm 23 years old and I've been nannying part and full time for 4 years and I very much enjoy it. To give you a little more background on myself and my experience - I'm a Certified Personal Trainer and I am Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED certified. I have previously worked at a standard daycare and Gold's Gym Kid's Club. As well as in home babysitting from 15 years old to current. I've nannied part time for 2 boys 6 and 8. Also nannied full-time for a baby from 2 months to 16 months. I have experience with infants, toddlers and older preteen/teen kids. I truly have an authentic love for children. I'm a multi-tasker and I make sure that everything I do is thorough and sufficient. I'm comfortable with running errand and doing housework. I'd like to think I'm a pretty easy going and fun babysitter while maintaining an authoritative figure while the parents are not present.
I offer care in a warm, family home environment with lots of playtime, story time and age appropriate activities. Your child will thrive learning new things with other children. I have been a licensed daycare provider for over 17 years. I am CPR and first aid certified. I accept children from newborn to school age. I provide breakfast lunch and an afternoon snack. I have a large backyard for children to play in when the weather is permitting. I also provide excellent references.
