Final Thoughts | #4

Something I wish I knew at the beginning of my internship that I know now, is how important it is to give children a good foundation to step on—whether it be a good academic foundation, financial foundation, or even a good emotional foundation. Kids have good memories and first impressions/conversations always stick with them and it sets the stage for how the rest of your relationship with them will go. A good foundation will not just set up a good relationship for life but it will set up a good example for the child to follow throughout his/ her life.

For anyone planning on doing an internship that involves children I would advise them to give a good foundation—be that mentor that they need right from the start and not just when you know them better.
