If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I have a sister and younger cousins ​​so they are always left in my care, they are ages 5, 9, 15 and 17 years old, I had to supervise the little ones, help with their homework and entertain, I was responsible for their meals and sometimes take them and go to school for them. My favorite part was to go for them and ask them what they learned in the day since they told me from their point of view everything they saw at school and how they felt about it.

In the case of the Seniors we mainly cook together, we put on makeup, we do TikTok, we go shopping and we play board games for which I must admit that I am very good, we also like to visit outdoor places where we can play, run or just sit and talk. With them, I liked that I could talk and listen to their complications and advise them, as well as they with me.
From all my experiences in childcare I learned that it is very important to maintain good communication with them, teach them to channel their emotions and know how to transmit them since each of them expresses themselves differently, understand what they feel because although sometimes for us they are insignificant problems for them if they are of their importance and should not be minimized.
