Letter to the family

I want to start a new adventure. I thought an exchange would be amazing but going to school every day and studying the same thing over and over is not for me. Also, I love taking care of children.
I would like to find a family that would be important to me and for whom I would be important.
I also think that it could be a new kind of independence and a chance to experience something incredible and unforgettable.

I find that living with a host family is a good way to discover a new culture and new traditions. I would like to improve my English and I think the best way to do this is to be confronted with it in everyday life. I hope that I will create a strong bond with your family.
The idea of seeing them grow and discover the world makes me want to support them in this process from the beginning to the end of my stay and even after if they need me. I would like to be like a big sister (with rules) and help them grow up with confidence.
I know how to deal with problems. If your child is upset about something I will let him/her speak and we will try to find a solution together.I am convinced that letting the child express himself allows him to be relieved and if we manage to find a solution together, it will allow him to feel valued. Of course, if you don't have the same vision of things I could adapt to your way of working but if it's the case let's talk about it to be sure to be in the same universe
I know your child will test my limits initially but I'm not worried about that. I think that if I explain to him my way of seeing things (in accordance with your principles) he should be fine. For me, the most important thing is that we can all trust each other to be comfortable together.
The most important thing for me is that everyone feels comfortable and that your child does not feel uncomfortable coming to talk to me if he or she feels the need.
I also think it can be a good idea to plan ahead so that I know when I will have free time. And that we also talk about household chores and what specifically you want from me. I adapt easily if things are explained to me. What do you think about it? I hope I'm not totally wrong
