Dear AuPairMom and Readers–
I enjoy reading the blog and learning from all your advice. I wonder if we could crowd-source some ideas?
Our Au Pair Community Counselor is a lovely person, but sometimes she seems a little out of touch with what Au Pairs might think is fun or useful.
Our Counselor plans the same boring monthly Au Pair meetings year after year. (We’ve had 4 au pairs, and they have all attended the same monthly meetings on Driving Safety, gone to the movies together, etc.)
For example, I can’t figure out why our Au Pair Coordinator didn’t plan a shopping trip to one of the big malls around Christmas time, and why she’s never planned a group trip to the beach (only one hour away).
Beyond the ‘classics’ of safety meetings,
what are some fun things that Community Counselors have done that have really engaged their cluster of Au Pairs?
