Bad experience

I got an email yesterday from an au pair who had a bad experience with her host family. She was asking my opinion about what to do. Some of her friends told her to go back home instead of changing the family.

I understand her friends' point but as I understand this family was just not a good fit for her and vice versa. That's why it is so important to do a very thorough interview beforehand.

I would recommend not to give up after a bad match or experience. As most of us know there are too many great families out there to try out only one and give up. It is important to try to find a good match and make the best of this experience.

I would highly recommend you talk to your au pair coordinator about what to do. He/she can likely do a mediation that can help you work through the issues that you are having with your host family. Making a change in families at the holidays can be very difficult because many people hold off on making any big changes to their childcare arrangements until after the New Year. Still, sometimes problems are the function of poor communication. Take the time to try and work through your issues, and perhaps your problems will resolve themselves.
