An Au Pair and a single parent.

More than 20 million kids in the United States live with one parent. Separation and divorce are the most common reasons for this. In other cases, the mom and dad may never have lived together, or one of them may have died.

Living with one parent instead of two can bring out a lot of emotions. Especially when kids lost their parents. Kids might feel sad and lonely and need more than a nanny.  In the situation where one parent is missing,  the Au Pair turns out to be an integral member of the family. That is why many single parents choose to hire an Au Pair.

I’ve had several single dads who raised the kids with an Au Pair’s help after kids lost their mothers. The Au Pair becomes a big sister for kids, a person who is a reliable and loving member of the family.

Single parents are often working parents because someone needs to earn money to pay for food, clothing, and a place to live.

An Au Pair  is willing to work around only one parent’s schedule and covers those times where work keeps the parent away from home.

The Au Pair becomes a responsible adult and a positive role model for the kids. She inspires and teaches  kids through her continual positive attitude and actions every moment – when she is working or having fun with the family

Watch the movie where two single host parents share their experience.
