I'm a single mum and I'm working full time sometimes 6 days a week. I have a 13 year old son who is a calm and independent person. My needs for child care are mostly for the half-term holidays. I'd like for him to do things and be active but not having family many connections in the area it means much time is spent indoors all day long.
I'd like for someone to be with him for a cycle ride or library or swim and also encouragement and support for homework or learning.
Ideally I'd like someone who has experience with over 8 year olds. My son is strong willed but needs a gentle and kind approach not to mention being strong when necessary is needed.
