Many families leave their children for years to be looked after by young people about whom they know next to nothing, from places they have barely heard of


  • The book does not flinch from documenting the realities of the situation the racism and the problematic behaviour of the au pairs themselves, as much as the ignorance and exploitation they can be subject to

    The book is a case study in how to come to feel modern life empathetically from the viewpoint of one of those many migrant groups we take for granted and rely on but rarely try to understand.

    This is the first book devoted to the lives of au pairs, their leisure as well as their work time

    We see this world from the eyes of the visitors, and their unique perspective on what lies at the heart of our family life

    Who are these au pairs, why do they come and what is their experience of this arrangement Do they, for their part, find that they are treated as one of the family, and would they even want to be After a year of careful research, this book shows how most of our assumptions and expectations about au pairs are wrong
