Experience to share:
I think that an ecperience as Au Pair should deserve to be lived, because it’s great. Even if at the beginning it’s challenging, more difficulties you live more you learn about the Chinese world and yourself.
The first period in the family I was really upset and shocked for their way of living and acting which it’s so far from ours, especially because these families are very rich and so they have different habits and ,in general,life style. I had been impressed by the expectations of the the parents on their kids education. Even if the children are very small, parents give a lot of importance to sports, studying languages, and other activities. So an Au Pair should be well prepareed about the high requests of the parents, who want the children can learn the foreign language quite fast.
An important thing to keep in mind is that, if at the beginning kids refuse you and it seems that they won’t accept you, you need to be patient and never give up!
At the end children will grow attathed to you and will consider you as a member of the family. I recommend you to try this wonderful experience!
