I have found that the course has helped me, especially with thinking of “projects” to do with Kevin (who is 3), and thinking through the right answers to his strange questions, rather than finding a way around it. The childcare skills and development section, in particular, are very helpful – my host “mom” is pregnant, with the baby girl due 8 days after I leave and it has helped me to think about what stage the baby is going through inside her.
