If you’re a working parent, when’s the last time you had more than a few minutes to yourself to relax and unwind, without having to answer to the demands of your children or even your partner? For many busy moms (and dads), these opportunities are few and far between!
Between working a full-time job during the day and taking care of children pretty much the rest of the time, parents are often left with little or no time to attend to their own need for relaxation. Sure, playing with racecars and having tea parties with your toddler or attending older children’s baseball games or ballet lessons can be fun, and they’re great bonding sessions with your kids. But parents also needs their own time and space now and then to clear their minds and maintain their emotional well-being.
Au Pair in America child care is a great solution for busy parents in need of some much-deserved “me” time!

With Au Pair in America, families create their own customized child care schedule of up to 10 hours of care per day and up to 45 hours per week, which includes evenings and weekends.
