Parenting and childcare issues

Experience in the area

I was a live in nanny for 3 years before I had my own children.I grew up in a licensed Childcare environment. I have worked in childcare centers.I own a extremely profitable licensed daycare in my home for the last 10 years.

Organizations

Family childcare association of Pierce county,NAFCC,WSFCCA,

Education/Credentials

Paralegal Degree currently working on my CDA
I am a board member for the Pierce County Family Child Care Association and a Board member of PSI of Washington. I run the warm line once a month for a week,helping new mom's with any issues they may have related to bringing home a new baby.

What do you like about this subject?

I consider myself a professional parent. I have always wanted 10 children of my own. I love kids and with that comes a natural understanding of them. I love that children are so honest and real. They have no agenda.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I am writing a series of children's books with my oldest daughter. I would like to get them published. I would like to travel and give parenting seminars. I would love to go into people's home's one on one and help them parent their children better.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The worst thing a parent or childcare provider can have is PATIENCE!!!! That means they have to deal with an unpleasant person. I think kids are great and I am the most impatient person I know. When you understand something or someone then you don't need patience. good-natured tolerance of delay or incompetence -defintion

Something controversial or provocative about this subject
