We have an 11-year-old budding engineer, very smart and likely to test your problem solving skills but respectful and kind. We also have a 10 yea old smart, sweet, creative mind. Both are considerate and kind but also act like regular siblings who squabble and compete. Our 10-year-old is a slow starter and needs encouragement to get her homework done while our 11 (almost 12) year old is a self starter but will often go so fast through his homework that he overlooks things. Additional needs include light housekeeping, being comfortable with pets, having a reliable car, a non-smoker. We could use help with structuring activities.
