You are basically a child-sitter except you will take care of your "guests"
overnight for periods ranging from a few days to a few weeks. You obviously
need to be someone who loves children. You will need to have a couple of spare
rooms in case you expect to have more than a handfull of "guests"
staying with you. Prior to your guest's arrival, you will need to meet with
the child's parents and find out the details of the child. You will need to
take note of the child's school, their schedule and any special need the child
may have. Take special note of medical conditions that the child may have and
be prepared with a list of medication and family doctors. During school breaks,
you will need to plan daily activities for your guests to keep them occupied.
Every parent knows that kids with lots of time and nothing to do leads to HAVOC,
so be prepared. You should also come to a clear understanding of how discipline
is to be handled. If either party is not agreeable, then it may be best NOT
to accept the child into your care.
