What will your au pair be doing this Christmas day?
If you have asked your au pair to be on duty and work during part of Christmas Eve & Christmas day, how did you present this plan to him or her?
Did you discuss it during matching, or months ago, or just this month as the holiday has gotten closer?
How did your au pair respond when you scheduled him or her for Christmas hours?
Did s/he not mind at all, feel relieved that s/he’d have something to do, or feel disappointed? Or something else?
What advice would you give to a first time host parent, for managing Christmas and an au pair’s work schedule?
