The Difficulty & the Bliss
When choosing a caregiver, as a parent you want to make sure your mind can be at ease regarding the person you’ve hired to take care of your little ones. It’s not a simple matter to leave your children in the hands of a stranger, so the more support you can get, the better. A business like ours helps to ensure that your children are taken care of in the best possible manner. This way, not only will you benefit from having an extra set of hands to help, but your children will benefit also, by being able to build a loving relationship with their very own caregiver, who often becomes a very important and memorable figure in their lives.
Focusing on a child’s well-being is key. Taking shortcuts doesn’t count in this game, but rather investing time and effort into the lives of the little ones. This means thinking about creative and age-appropriate activities, providing emotional support, as in showing interest in what the child is doing, and obtaining a deeper understanding of the child’s level of cognitive functioning, not to mention making sure the child gets healthy nutrition the proper amount of sleep! Nutrition is a vital part of a child’s growth and development, both physical and emotional, so it’s super important to pay attention to what children are munching on.
Tip of the Day
For a child, it’s important that a caring adult stops to listen when the child has something to say. You can often boost this level of connection by getting down to the level of the child, looking her in the eye, and giving some undivided attention (that means without the cell phone in your hand) and trying to understand.
