1.In my first job taking care Lucero and Sebastian i learned a lot about childcare,I learned how to prepare baby food and taking care of its needs ,helped the girl do her homework and we play a lot.
2. In my second job, it was more difficult but I also learned a lot, i learned how to be patient with the older children, help them clarify their ideas and listen to them. I was able to put into practice everything I learned in psychology.

Family experience:

-My nephew lives with me, he is 14 years old, I have been living with him for 1 year and learning how to treat a teenager. I help him to do his homework, to resolve concerns, I like to help him develop critical thinking and we do exercises together.
- One of my brothers has two children, a 4 year-old girl and a 3 month-old baby. On weekends I usually visit them and take care of the girl or they bring her to my house on saturdays. We play together, we go to the movies, we bake cookies or brownies, i prepared her food etc. For When my niece was two years old I had to take care of her every afternoon, we lived very close
at that moment.

As for reading, I like to teach my nephews books to read. I teach them how to get analysis out of reading and I teach them that reading is not always boring.I teach my neighbors how to paint, draw, and do their homework, I'm not very good at painting but I look for drawings on the internet and they make them.
