Okay Moms, I give in. I will take a deep breath, and open the floodgates, because it’s time to address the topic that every host parent cares about: "How can we get the best match possible?"
We have to take this one slowly, maybe even over a couple of months. There’s just too much to cover, and too many other pressing topics, for us to expect to get out all our advice and tips on matching right away.
Let’s start with some of the basics. How about we each share …
* Really go off the board with this one– think of something that never seems to make it onto the agencies’ "suggested questions list".
* Look at the questions already shared, so that we can avoid duplication and nudge ourselves to be creative.
* Link the question to something that you value in an au pair or au pair relationship– tell us why you think this question is important.
