Taking in an au pair that is changing host families; what exactly does this mean? An au pair that wants to change host families is already in your country, but wants to work in a different family. To be honest, when we first heard about au pairs that wanted to change host families, we had a lot of prejudices. If the au pair needs to change host families, the au pair musthave a difficult personality, right? Wrong!
Over the years, we have found that most au pairs actually want to change host families because their previous family had expectations that were way too high, or because the host family was exploiting the au pair. Unfortunately, some host families mistake the au pair program for a domestic worker program and treat their au pairs like maids.
