COVID-19 stories #9: “I am like a teacher right now”


During these scary COVID-19 times we have to stay strong, however difficult it may be. Some of us are dealing with homesickness, some feel scared and others try to make the best out of the situation. We are all dealing with this situation in a different way, but we want to let you know that you are NOT (!) alone. We will share COVID-19 stories from au pairs to show you that you are not the only one who is dealing with this.

Au pair from France

So right now the situation is hard cause my host kid doesn’t have school and I have to become a teacher. Also, because every place is closed (library, sports, …) we have to stay home all the time. I don’t know yet if I have restrictions for going out (movies or restaurant). But, I had a trip to Mexico planned that I had to cancel because my host family was worried and I was also worry to not be able to come back.

Do you feel inspired and want to share your story with us? Send an email to and tell us about your situation.
