I am being influenced by my host kid.

Hey People,

MY HOST KIDS ARE AWESOME.

I don't know how many of you guys have such a nice relationship with your host kids, but I do have. We share a strong bond. Why am I telling you that? My intention is not to brag about it. I just want to show you that not only you can be an influent person on your host kids' life, but the other way around is quite possible too.

For example, my 13 year old host kid loves reading and writing. She reads at least two books every week and writes awesome stories. We, coincidentally, like stories about supernatural things, such as demons and angels stuff. Because of her influence and incentive,  I started to read way more. She would land me books that she loved about subjects that I like. Before I met her, I was the kind of person that would read one book per year, or less. Unfortunately, I never learned how to enjoy reading a book, but thanks to her I am changing for good.

She not only influenced me to start reading more often( I read three books this month - YES), but  she got me into writing, and I figured out that I actually enjoy it more than I thought. Now, she is not only my host kid, but also she is my editor and mentor (awwwwwwww).

This week, I started to write a story about a cursed girl. So far, I only have one chapter done. I would love if you guys check it out and tell me what you think. My host kid made up an account on Wattpad for me. I will post the link below.

I strongly recommend for those who want to improve their English to write and read as much as they can because those are the only ways to level up the English to an academic level. By reading you can expand your vocabulary. I know it is hard for us to get away from the simple words, but we are here to improve our English. Aren't we?

PS: If you say you don't have money to buy books, I say "POO YOU!" . There are many free eBooks on amazon. Just look it up. If you enjoy that kind of "supernatural" reading, here are the last two books I have read #1 and #2.  Once again, READING and WRITING are the keys!

One small tip about host kid x au pair relationship: Try to share with your kids things that you like, and show them that you are also interested on things they like. For example, if your host kid likes star wars, then you should take some of your free time, or with your host kid while you are working, to watch it. Why? First, you are showing him that you are very interested in becoming part of his world. Second, you are going to have more things to discuss about with him. As any other person, kids also like to have a conversation because it makes them feel very "grown up". Lastly, the parents will see that you are trying to be friends and bond with their kids. (Just one more that does not count for the au pair like as au pair, but it counts for the au pair life as a girl: If your kid actually like start wars or not , still you should watch it because guys also love  girls who know about their Lightsaber - if you know what I mean!)

  2. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
