I am certified red cross babysitter and I have my BA in psychology. I have helped raise my niece for several years and have 10 years experience taking care of children. It really awoke me to my passion for caring for children, and I discovered that I have quite a natural talent for it. I also have volunteered at a day carecenter and a head start program while i was away at school, I am a volunteer crisis counselor and I have intern experience working with children with behavioral and other disabilities. With my experiences of the past few years, I have decided that I am going to change my career path and move towards a child psycologist. I love animals and children. I love treating the world and viewing it in a compassionate and loving way. I try my best not to judge anyone, and I try to understand people to the best of my ability. I view the world with curious wonderment of what I am going to discover new every day. One of my goals in life is to help people and to make a difference in their lives, and one way in which I do that everyday is to treat everyone with kindness and compassion, while hopefully bringing out the best in them and making some impact on them in one shape or form. I like to have fun with children and interacting with them seems to bring out the creative inner child in me which I didn’t think I had. I am amazed as to how powerful wording of phrases and how powerful talking to children is in terms of helping them and getting them to be on the same page as you are. In dealing in terms of discipline or disaggrement I try to work with the child and come up with a solution together, or at least find out why the child may be having difficulty, and most of the time from there it is easier to move forward together.
