All about au pairs

E-mail Print PDF

     “A hundred years from now...

    it will not matter what my bank account was,

    the sort of house I lived in,

    or the kind of car I drove...

    ...but the world may be different because

    I was important in the life of a child.”


1. How is it to have an au pair? – The view of a host family

Hello, my name is Franzi and I´d like to tell you about what it is like to be a host family. When I talked to my mum, I found out some interesting facts about the au pairs that I had when I was a lot younger and that I myself can't really remember anymore.

As my parents both had to go to work, they organized au pair girls for me when I was a little child. They thought it would be good for me to have a person who lived in the household with us so that I had the chance to get to know that au pair better. They also liked the idea of teaching the German language and also German traditions to an open-minded person from another country. Furthermore it was less stressful for my mum, because she didn't need to drive me to a nanny. This was also useful when my parents wanted to go out in the evening because I could sleep in my own bed.

My first au pair stayed with me when I was three years old. My mother told me that her name was Emmy and that she came from Slovenia. I cannot remember that but I was told that she was very friendly and helpful.

If you are a passionate amateur cook and love to experiment with new recipes, this will be the perfect dessert to try out for you! It has a bit of everything – juicy fruits, a sweet note and delicious dough. Especially in autumn, plum dumplings are one of the most popular and most cooked desserts in our region. The recipe even goes back to the time of our great-grandmothers. Of course, they were cooked with fresh plums from the orchard and therefore the dessert was even more delicious. If you know any plum tree near your house or even have one in your garden, it is absolutely worth cooking with fresh plums - you will notice the difference.
