The great unknown!
I am considering entering uncharted territory by looking for an AuPair for when M goes back to school. Someone that would take care of breakfast/getting M ready for school and take care of feeding and entertainment after school. Like every other parent, we are looking for a ‘perfect guardian angel’ – someone warm-hearted, loving, honest, reliable, experienced with children, energetic and positive. I am a little hesitant about having someone we don’t know live with us – but my biggest fear is how do I know which AuPair is the prefect match for us?, how can you judge someone over the phone?, what questions should I ask? can I trust my instinct? Anyone have firsthand experience and advice? What are the best questions to ask ?
