Accept your exchange student as part of your family and for what they are. Then give them love, understanding, compromise, fun and compassion and they will become another son/daughter willing to give back exactly the same things you gave them. They will then be “yours” for the rest of your life and you will be “theirs” for the rest of theirs.
