Water boy...by marc falardeau

I have known Petar for 10 years, both as a friend and as a schoolmate. We met at primary school and have continued to be friends until the present day. Our friendship is real, without any envy or looking down on each other, so I can say that I know him pretty well. At this moment, we are both in Grammar school in the natural science course.

I have always known him to be very kind to children. He has always proved himself to be extremely sensitive, for example, he used to take poor children from the streets for lunch. I can confirm that he is easy to connect with children. I remember him doing babysitting once. He was caring for two young children aged two and three years old. Their parents had to attend a very important meeting in order to get a higher position in the same firm they worked in, so he offered to take care of their kids. To children, he looks so fun and they quickly get interested in his fantasy stories and fairy tales.

I must say, however, that sometimes his tolerance can lead children to behave even worse than they usually do. I suppose that is because he is very patient with children and there is a moment when his flexibility comes into effect. I assume this is the only drawback he has when dealing with children. I suppose he should be more strict and everything will come into its place.

For the reasons I have given I have no hesitation in supporting Petar’s application for this job. I believe that you will be more than happy to have him as a babysitter.
