There are some Host Parent – Au Pair situations where, once they happen, you can’t really do anything. Except get steamed.
Even when it’s more than just the Au Pair’s behavior, getting steamed at that other Host Family or even at the Au Pair Agency that let it all happen doesn’t actually help you.
So, I get it. You email Au Pair Mom with a polite, tidy, appropriate rant. And then, we post it so that members of the community can tell you:
You’re not nuts to be mad.
And…… what else?
Is there anything we can say that helps?
Here’s the email:
Dear AuPairMom — We were in rematch at the end of July, and we matched with a 9-month extension au pair. Her first family had wanted her to extend with them, she said she wanted to try something new, so even though she loved them, she chose to move forward with extending with another family- us.
