This was my first year being an Au pair, I chose France and it has been such a great experience! being supported by the Buterfly team has really made it a smooth process. I found the support calls super helpful as you realize we are all facing similar challenges and you can learn from how other people are advised on how to handle situations that arise within the family dynamic. I also realized that hard feelings of missing home or feeling overwhelmed by all the changes that happen at once are normal in the transition process and it made me feel more at peace with the decision I had made. I'm normally not a big fan of support groups but it truly helped me have a different and better perspective! Join a call if you can 🙂
