Your daily life as an Au Pair will be mainly based on the fulfilment of your tasks and free time; for this experience to be as satisfactory as possible, we offer you some pieces of advice.
It is essential that you carry out the tasks established in the agreement executed with your host family and that you do so taking into account that a great part of such functions are related to childcare, which requires a great responsibility on our part and the best possible performance.
As regards childcare, you should first realise how important your job is and appreciate how lucky you are for being able to carry it out since from the first day you will realise how wonderful it is to deal with children, there being no day in which you learn something with them.
However, not all days will be wonderful and quiet, since they are kids and they will have tantrums, irritation, tiredness or in which they will be ill.
That is why you must undertake the importance of your work, acting many times as a mother, a nurse, a cook, a teacher, a friend, a professor, and many other things, so you will not have a single profession, you'll have thousands of them, but it is worth it.
Another task you'll have to carry out and which you may not like are the house tasks agreed upon with the host family under the Au Pair agreement; we remind you that such tasks must be daily tasks performed by any member in any family, never involving heavy tasks such as ironing the family's clothes, cleaning the entire house or bathrooms, etc.
