First of all, kids tend to have very heightened emotions. They will react to things much more emotionally than adults will. Fighting will happen. The way I handle it when my kids fight is I take them both and sit them down and talk to them about what happened and I let them think of ideas to solve the problem. If they can't figure it out, then I have to think a bit deeper. Usually I don't have to go that far.
Have water games to play. Be creative. Play outside as much as possible because it is very healthy for children to play outside. When you are inside have some movies to watch and activities for them to do. Have several activities going on at the same time so that they are not all crammed together doing something. Not only will that be stressful for you, but it will be for them too, and that is when you start to have behavior problems.

Originally Answered: How much can the owner of a commercial Insurance Agency expect to make? (in Year 1, Year 5, Year 10?)?
Low risk? I don't know where you are getting that idea from, but the risk for a small brokerage (especially a new one)is actually quite substantial. How well you can attract business depends not only on you but on which insurance companies you can write business for. Getting contracts with the good ones is quite difficult if you're starting from zero. You have nothing to offer the larger companies. Even if you could you're going to have to start producing a lot of business in a short amount of time, because your insurers are going to want to see two things: volume in areas that they want to write and profitability. If you can't produce in either area then they'll cancel your contract, and then you'll see where the risk factors in as you're scrambling to remarket those policies and keep the client from going elsewhere (like a brokerage that still has a contract with the insurance company you no longer represent). If the insurance company you lost was one of your heavy hitters, then that could spell the end of the brokerage.
Small businesses are nice to write because they are simple package policies, but their premiums tend to be low. Medium sized businesses (those with revenues around $5-$20 million) are the juiciest because of the relatively large premiums, they tend to have other insurance needs such as fleet policies, bonds, etc and usually don't require a dedicated CSR (contractors/construction companies can suck up a lot of your time as they tend to replace equipment often and require certificates of insurance and bonds for jobs). Keep in mind these businesses will already be insured with a brokerage who have been doing this longer than yours, have more markets than yours and have an established relationship with the business (ergo more difficult to convince the business to change brokerage or even allow you to quote). Large businesses (those with multiple locations either nationally or internationally) are the Holy Grail for a brokerage however they won't even give a small brokerage like yours the time of day. Only large brokerages can tackle those beasts.
As for what you expect to earn no one here can say. Saying you're in Florida is nice, but a commercial brokerage in Miami is going to have different opportunities than one in Key West or one in Jacksonville. Small and medium businesses tend to stick with a brokerage that is convenient to them, so if your office is in an area where the only businesses with 100 miles are small retail stores with no manufacturing and/or rental properties, then your opportunities will not be the same as a brokerage that has a mix of retail and light manufacturing/light industrial (condo buildings and commercial properties can be quite lucrative if you can insure enough of them but they tend to have a high frequency of claims) . Plus it's possible your markets are not competitive for the type of businesses that are in your area., and the markets that are competitive may not be looking to take on new brokerages in your area. Also the fact that you plan to this part time while you finish school doesn't help your chances either.
Well, if they are 4-7 they will definately love to colour, so make sure you have an art area, or something.
But kids love to ask you alot of questions and tell you what they did last week, yesterday, and so on..., so just pay attention to them...
Another thing is, that if they get mad, or unhappy, do not try to fight with them in anger if they are not listening to you, just have alittle seat as a time out spot, and give them time to cool off, But make sure you tell them why they are in that chair, and how long they have to stay there for.
IF they get off the seat, just simply place them back on...continue to do this, until their time is up, and let them apologize to you.
I think a summer camp should involve more activities, since its hot, and not much to do... maybe sometime you could have a sprinkler and have them jump and run through it.
:) I hope this helped a ton. GOOD LUCK!

Are you doing this on your own or are you doing this with a summer camp program? If you are doing this with a summer camp program, then they should be giving you some training. You can do some arts and crafts, play some games, have a snack, ect.

sand art, play do, coloring, kid games hide n seek, ring around the rosey cars, house, baseball, pretty much just ask them what they want to do they will tell ya or just give them 2 choices like hide n seek or duck duck goose let them vote, play the one that has the most votes first then play the other that way all kids are happy.

Originally Answered: Good books for 9 year old, 5 year old, & 1 year old to read?
Well 9 years Old and 5 year old is a huge age difference and will not like the same books, 5 and 1 year olds will like Skippy Jon Jones the siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua. The 9 year old could read thinks more miture such as chapter books.
