I know most families might not provide a smart phone, but from my experience, the Au Pairs have their own devices any ways. We hope our Au Pairs are not on them all the time, but I am realistic and know mine are on them and they use them when they are not working. So, I figure to make their transition easier, I would provide them with some of the best apps to download.
The app that made me chuckle was the Clothing Size Conversion app– which my imagination turned into an app that helps au pairs (and anyone else) convert the size she thinks she is in her mind into the size she fits into at Forever21. It has an alarm if the intended outfit is age-inappropriate, obvs.
Which made me wonder — what apps do I wish all au pairs had on their smart phones?
“Drunken FratFellow BS Detector”?
“Au Pair Clothing Evaluator: Tacky or Terrific?”
“Host Mom – Au Pair Translator'”?
“Tough Conversation GPS Tool”?
