Letter to the family

Hej my future host family! :)))

I'm Tutku. I'm from Turkey, currently living in Århus, Denmark, will soon be 19 years old and am fully vaccinated. I want to become an au pair and a nanny because I genuinely enjoy giving care to children. I believe touching even a small aspect of a child's life is extremely significant. And I believe being a nanny doesn't only give the opportunity of giving to children, but learning from them. Experiencing the culture of the family is a great side-benefit.

I'm confident that I'm a sufficient candidate because I'm experienced in this for one thing. I took care of my aunt's little son who is now 3 years old when she was at work. But besides, I'm deeply interested in developmental psychology and children’s psychology in general. I feel responsible for supporting and encouraging children and fostering their development along with providing safety for them.

I have an energetic personality. I have lots of energy and creativity to actively engage with a playful child and lots of patience that makes me willing to spend countless hours with children and makes me understanding about a children’s moods and behaviours without losing my temper or becoming outwardly irritated. I'm aware of how sensitive little people are and how important it is to give them the time to learn how to regulate their emotions. I don't seek any answers in punishment. I believe effective communication with compassion can become the solution. Therefore I'm kindly asking you to not expect me to punish your children in order to discipline them. Not that I have a problem with discipline, in fact, it would be a great pleasure for me to help children claim their self-discipline. But I don't think giving harsh punishments is the way to do that. Apart from this, I assure you that I'll respect your parenting style and I'm willing to compromise to change my way of treating your children in the way you want me to.

Considering my hobbies what I’m dedicated to is cooking. I like trying recipes from different cuisines but I can't promise it will always be delicious ':) House chores like laundry and cleaning are daily parts of my life already so I believe you can trust me on these too.

If you’re interested and want to get to know me better don't hesitate to text me.

I am very excited about meeting my host family and the children that I’m going to be a loving big sister to :))

Kind regards
