We’ve had au pairs living with us and helping us with Hattie and Joe since they were 14 months old and I started my degree. Here are a couple of blog posts I’ve written about it. How to find a great au pair talks about the process of actually figuring out what kind of person you want, and tracking him or her down. How to be a happy host family discusses our experiences of making life with an au pair work well for you, them, and your kids. And coming soon – about 18 months after Hattie and Joe started school – an update to talk about au pairs and bigger kids!
