...but one I'd like to voice anyway.
Hello, friends, here's the situation. I want to be a foster mom, and plan to be one as soon as it's realistic. I love working with kids--I'm an elementary education major (I'm twenty, by the way), and I've worked in childcare for awhile now. I'm also very very short. Under five feet. This is something I'm a little self conscious of. I wouldn't want it to hinder children's impression of me, especially older children, or have them feel like I don't have authority. I'm also single at the moment, and I don't want to wait till I'm with someone to provide a home for children. This is the main thing that makes me apprehensive about the idea of working with older kids/teens.
Has anyone felt similarly or been in a similar situation? Is this dumb to be worried about? Thank you in advance!
