If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
With my brother I learned to take care of someone besides myself, he is three years younger than me and when my parents were not present I was the one who was there for him if he needed help with school work or if he just wanted to play.

I also took care of my two younger cousins on occasions when their parents asked me to help them, they were short periods of time where I played with them, accompanied them, and supervised them. With these experiences I learned more about patience and empathy, I also learned that children learn more by example than by words so we must be careful with our actions.
