If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
Among my experiences in caring for children, the one that has marked me the most because of the learning that I have acquired has been to be able to take care of my younger brother, I have been six years old, and since his birth I have been able to have the opportunity to change his diapers, being able to bathe him after he was seven months old, prepare his bottle and be aware of him while he was taking it. It was with him that he really learned all the responsibilities that parents have with children, he prepared his food, dressed him, took him to birthdays, and always helped him in his learning, reading books to him or teaching him to write. As the years went by he learned that he had to help him learn in different ways, for example: At the age of five he helped him ride a bicycle, he helped him to learn colors and numbers, when he was seven it was different because he took him to practice his favorite sport which is baseball, I started to help him with his homework, such as math, which was the most difficult for him, and when he was 9-10 years old, my greatest responsibility was to always be there to do his homework and do not go to play without doing it. Being in each stage of my brother's life taught me the different stages that a child has, this strengthened me at the moment of having in my life the responsibilities of all those parents who trusted me to care for their children.
