If you’re a busy working parent, here’s a question for you: when’s the last time that you and your partner had a date? A real date, without a little third (or fourth or fifth) wheel? Has it been more than a couple of weeks? Months? Longer?
Hosting an au pair for child care gives parents time to reconnect with each other during date nights!
For many parents, time spent together usually revolves around the children. From feeding picky toddlers to dealing with dramatic pre-teen crises, the focus is constantly on the kids, and sometimes it seems like days go by without adult interactions between parents. As much as you love your children, you occasionally need some time away from them to connect with your partner on a personal level, where conversations don’t revolve around the minutia of your children’s daily lives. And on those rare occasions when you DO plan a date night, the added cost (and stress) of hiring a babysitter can make it an expensive proposition!
Hosting an au pair with Au Pair in America is a great solution to the date night dilemma! Families receive up to 45 hours of child care per week and create their own customized child care schedule of up to 10 hours per day. As the children’s regular caretaker, your au pair is a familiar figure to your children and knows their personalities and routines, giving parents added peace of mind that their children are in good hands while they are away.
With reliable child care, you can add date nights back into the mix! While you’re reconnecting with your partner over a glass of wine, your children will be having their own fun night in with your au pair—and they probably won’t even notice you’re gone.
