5 things I learned being an Au Pair.

There are 5 important things I learned being an Au Pair.
1.Love: love what you do and put the best of you in it. Live with love, teach kids with love and spread love around.

2. Patience: when you work with children one of the most important things is being  a patient, attentive and responsible adult. When working with kids sometimes you need to handle the stresses, frustrations, and  the emotional swing.

3.  Adaptability: you find that some things are weird to you, but some things are also weird for your host family. This is normal, we all are different,  the most important thing is being always polite, respectful and understating.

4. Communication: have constant communication with your host family because you live together. It is always good to be honest and ask questions.

5. Flexibility: try to be flexible and ready to help. Sometimes the schedule changes: parents are late or kids get sick. Many things happen and a real life is sometimes far away from what was expected.Au pair from Colombia

Being an Au Pair with Go Au Pair I learned a lot and I am looking forward to learn more with my new family and their kids.  It is fun to be around the kids, they are so enthusiastic, active and curious. I like to teach them new things and to see them grow up happy and confident. I can’t wait to meet my host family and their kids!
