After a rough breakup last January, I was sad and single in the Big Apple.Valentine’s Day was approaching, and this city of more than eight million people was feeling oddly lonely.Please note: A granny-nanny or granny au pair is not a cheap or free household help!Therefore, some set up a formal or informal “contract”, but this is not an obligation.The fact that most of them have children on their own puts them above a regular young au pair when it comes to handle baby’s colics, a toddler’s meltdown or a child’s never ending questioning.If you decide on a nanny from Germany, Switzerland or Austria, you will get someone that is not only able to speak German to your kids, but can also sing German songs, read German books, and knows about your traditions.What you will get: A well experienced, temporary family member; an additional grandma for your children, a mother/mother in law for yourself, a companion and definitely a new friendship.
It’s always a good idea to have multiple Skype sessions and talk about the daily live, what’s needed in terms of hours, etc.
With 12 weeks of summer, several snow days during wintertime, and children getting sick every so often, there is no way for working Mom and Dads, to be there for their children all the time. Working with au pair girls or boys might be another option, but let’s be honest – depending on age and level of experience with children, it sometimes feels like adding another child into the mix.
Daycares or after-school programs might work for some, but most of them don’t offer evening hours.
