The first weeks that an au pair and a host family spend together are challenging and very exciting and can shape the whole au pair stay. We've had the chance to interview Helena, an au pair from Denmark, and her host mom Brigitte. They share their tips for getting off to a good start and growing together as a family. Find out how au pairing worked out for them and how you can have a great start with your own au pair or host family, too.
I'm Ellen and I've been working as an editor at AuPairWorld since 2011. After writing so much about au pairing, I've decided it's time to get out from behind my desk and go out into the world and be an au pair myself. I'm really excited!
