Calling All Host Moms-
We want your opinions!
** Should a Host mom have her incoming Au Pair overlap with her outgoing Au Pair? **
A reader recently posed this question in the comments section of the post on Orienting Your New Au Pair. Rather than responding unilaterally with my $.02, I’d like to get your opinions, advice and concerns about this tactic, and put them together in a post that covers the question from a variety of directions.
Would you tell us:
- Have you ever had your incoming and outgoing Au Pairs overlap?
- What were you hoping that this tactic would do for your incoming Au Pair? Your outgoing Au Pair? You? Your children?
- Any stories about great experiences with overlapping? How about not so great experiences?
- On balance, when (if ever) would you recommend this tactic?
You can zip me an email at Mom@AuPairMom.com, or you can put your thoughts in the comments section below. In a week (around July 15) I’ll post a compilation of our advice on overlapping.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experience!
