The Au Pairs Program is do-it-yourself project.

For many young people who came by  J-1 Visa Exchange Visitors Program as the Au Pairs to the US, for a new experience to live with a host family.  From the time they start the Au Pair program, the responsibility of shaping a life  is on the Au Pair’s shoulders.

A right attitude is the key. The responsibility of building great relationships with your host family, working hard to provide the best childcare, making new friends, and living a fulfilled life falls on you.

Someone said, “Life is a do-it-yourself project.”  It means that your life today is the result of your efforts and choices in the past. Your life tomorrow will be the result of your attitudes and the choices you make today.Au Paiirs goaupair

Starting your life as an Au Pair, do it to the best of your ability and  with the best  possible attitude. It is up to you to build the life you want in the US,  therefore, make friends, be proactive, seek out social events, travel and visit new places and have a successful year in America.

It takes time to develop, grow and build the life you want. Apply your best effort in building a strong relationship with your family. Go above and beyond your childcare responsibilities, do more things with kids, – go to the parks, zoos, museums, sport games, libraries, teach  them a foreign language, introduce them to your culture,  and prepare  your home country’s dishes for the whole family.

 Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build you the second family you will  be welcome tomorrow.

    Polina, I love your post and your attitude! My husband is famous for saying, “Yeah, but that was yesterday. Today is a new day!” Sometimes he is trying to get out of trouble, but he has a great point. Each day is a new opportunity to share peace, love and happiness with those around us. Thanks for reminding!

    Yes, we all make mistakes, but if we learn from them, we become better people. Like it said, “we are creating yourself”. What we learnt from our mistakes is another phrase to describe our experience.
    Thank you very much for reading and your comment, Joan.
