Pros: home enviroment, loving children and amazing co-workers.
Cons: no healthcare. and the possiblity of getting hurt is very high.
Typical day at work: depending on the house im working at that day my job duties vary.
i come in, sign in, look therap(commuication device) see whats been going on.
also depending on whether the children are home or not. if they are home, im immidiatly hands on. i get them to do their daily tasks as i try to avoid behaviors. the children i work with – more... are the hardest yet the most enjoyable part of my job. they are hard because these kids do not know how to deal with their behaviors, so when they lash out, and they have behaviors not only are they dangerous to themselves but they are also a danger to me as well, so my main thing day in and day out is to keep them calm and avoid behaviors.
My co workers are Amazing, we all know what to do, each individual at the start of their shift comes in knowing what to and when to it.
over all i like my job at Home of Guiding hands. – less
