What are My Attributes? Caring-I help other people that need to be cared for such as those in a nursing home. I also help out my parents and loved ones who are in need. Upbeat-I like to make people laugh and smile everyday. A good attitude is how you show your personality. You need an upbeat attitude when caring for children, because you have to pay attention to them and deal with their parents. Truthful-I try to not tell someone a lie or a story, because I would not want anyone to lie to me. If you tell someone a lie in front of their child you could cause a lot of trouble.
