Lovely family in Bel Air with two children, ages 13 (boy) & 11 (girl) seeks a full-time Manny or Nanny. The primary role of the position is to look after the 13 year old boy who has a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD. He’s a complicated & awesome guy! He’s in a mainstream school and is extremely bright but requires the help of two tutors, some medication and many therapists. He has a GREAT family and Mom & Dad worry that his easy-to-ignore little sister is getting short-changed as far as their attention goes. The idea is to hire someone special for their super special son. They would LOVE for him to be involved in sports or out bike riding but they have a really hard time motivating him to do any physical activity — so a sporty or outdoorsy Manny or Nanny would ideal. He’s a big tech guy who can build a computer from scratch, but they don’t want him to be addicted to screens. He’s also interested in community gardening and volunteering, but Mom/Dad haven’t had the time or energy to facilitate those interests on a regular basis and they’d like help on that front as well.
Mom and Dad would love to get out every once in a while for dinner and they like to travel every now and again on their own, so their ideal candidate will be flexible to stay late and stay overnight on occasion. Hopefully candidates like to travel too as they own a great home out of state that they regularly visit with the kids. Weekends have been especially tricky so ideally, we can find a Manny or Nanny willing to work Saturday, Sunday plus three days during the week. If a weekend off is required — the family will accommodate. So long as there’s reciprocal flexibility — everything can be worked out.
Our ideal candidate is a charismatic/strong/active/consistent Manny or Nanny who has special needs experience, is super flexible, likes to travel, can cook healthy kid food, has heaps of common sense, a high EQ, the patience of Job and is a great role model, mentor, family organizer & inspiring individual with an empathic heart and a clean driving record. We are holding out for someone super special who will step up big time to help this really kind and wonderful family. The goal is to relieve some of the pressure caused by a beautiful child who requires extraordinary care. This is a great opportunity for a Manny/Nanny who would like some free weekdays as the kids are in school until 2:30/3:30pm most days so you’ll get your 40 hours over the course of the WEEKENDS + three afternoons/evenings (through dinner and possibly beyond).
Mom is understandably burnt out. She really wants someone else to oversee the homework (in addition to the tutors), and push her boy to get outside and be more physically active and engaged. Dad would love a little help every now and again too, i.e. taking the car in for service or running to the pharmacy. This is a Family Assistant role. Of note, there are two gorgeous dogs in the house and a full time Housekeeper who has been with the family for 10+ years and is involved with the kiddos. We would LOVE to find the perfect person to round out the team and fill this really important role. Here is an opportunity to earn money while doing some VERY important work for a family who could use a little magic.
