I do think that being a parent helps to prepare you for a career as a carer. Being a parent requires you to be kind and patient. These qualities are very important for a carer. Also I think that the years spent physically and emotionally taking care of your children will give you invaluable experience that you can carry forward to your career as a carer.

In my opinion, being a parent of a child with a particular health issue would be an advantage to becoming a carer.

I´m not a parent, but i´m sure that it would help you to be a good carer if you were a parent. I think it would certainly teach you some patience when dealing with people that might be more difficult to deal with.

Good evening,
After 12 years as a full-time mum, I´ve found that my experiences have prepared me for my upcoming career in caring because I feel as a parent we learn how to consider others and to value their needs.

I do think that being a parent helps me in my career as a carer because it makes me feel good that I can care for somebody who is vulnerable.

I do think that being a parent helps you prepare for a career as a carer because as a mother you are all things to your children - from care giver to nurse when your child is ill. It gives you an empathy to those in need of sensitivity and compassion.

I think that being a parent is good preparation for being a Carer because you have to put the needs of your children before your own needs and be always aware of what has to be done for them.
It makes you think of the physical and emotional needs of others which is what the job of Carer is about.

I think it does because when you have kids you will learn to put your kids needs first and to have a lot of patience with them. So when you are a carer, you will have to put your clients needs first to complete the tasks that needs to be done. You will have to have patience and listen to them as well and being a parent helps you do this.
