The process of choosing a host family is a really important step in becoming an AU PAIR. If not even the most important thing the future Au Pair has to face. If you click with your host family your experience will be wonderful. If you do not… it can be hell!
Many Au Pairs go through the process of switching the family after they already move and most of them told me that this is a horrible experience.
“You found your family, you move there, you get settle but in a month or so you realize the family does not respect the agreement you made, or they do not pay attention to you, or the pocket money is not sufficient enough… “
Now what?! Do you stay? Do you quit?
If you stay, the experience will not be as it could be – the best year in your life. If you give them a resignation you still have to stay there for about 14 up to 30 days and taking care of their children. But most importantly, in that time you still have to LIVE THERE in their house.”
Being an Au Pair in this position is a very uncomfortable situation.
That is why I strongly advice you to PAY ATTENTION TO THE RED FLAGS that appear in process of interviewing.

Is there still something you would like to know? Go get your copy of the book How to be an Au Pair.
The book How to be an AU PAIR is easy to read and extremely useful for anyone who is thinking to go to work as an Au Pair. Unlike many complicated approaches towards childcare, I have to say that is the handbook How to be an AU PAIR full of simple, smart, and »healthy« bits of advice on the topic. I like the fact that the book based on Danica’s experiences, which are described in detail. The positive and the negative aspects of it.Neja P., first-grade teacher
While reading the book How to be an AU PAIR I was surprised how can someone who is not a pedagogue use so well-chosen approach towards children. I am a primary teacher and I would be extremely happy to work with Danica. 🙂
Working with kids is one of the most beautiful experiences in this world but not an easy one. You have to feel the calling, you have to be accessible to children but still set clear boundaries… In the book How to be an AU PAIR, Danica captured this issue very well.
I highly recommend it!
BWT my dear future Au Pair!!!
