In December Cherry and I did a Child Development course at Long Island University, New York. We had class the Friday night, whole Saturday and Sunday morning. At first I was bummed out that we had to have class the Friday night, but our teacher was awesome and made it worth our while. Nicole (the teacher) is very talkative and through the whole course she told us stories about her career and the children that she has worked with. After this course I am totally willing to admit that I definitely have the most normal host family, which I’m blessed to have.

The course also mainly focuses on children that either have behavioral/mental issues, or disabilities. So if there’s any au pairs out there that feel like they need a break or even just advice on how to handle your host children, take this course.

Aside from the course, we had fun staring a dorm with 8 different girls, each taking their own course. Cherry and I had one tiny room with a bunk-bed. It was pretty hilarious trying to sleep on a tiny mattress with typical college bedding. Even though we mostly spent our nights hanging out in different places. You can go out on Saturday night if you have your own car or if you are willing to pay for a cab to go search for a party somewhere.

You receive 3 credits for this course and my personal opinion is that they could have given us more credits for the amount of hours we’ve spent in class. Overall, it is a fun course. If anyone wants to know anything about the course or about LIU, feel free to ask.
