Adjusting to a New Culture: How You Can Help Your Au Pair
Living abroad for a long period of time is something exciting, thrilling and exhilarating but can also be complicated and stressful at times. Everything can be so different from what your au pair is used to: language, landscape, food, weather, driving, customs and much more.
Although you may want your au pair to dive right in your family’s routine and lifestyle, it may be useful for you to understand what she is going through in order to assist your au pair transitioning to her new life. This feeling is totally normal and is often described as Culture Shock.
