Dear family,

In former times it was often the case that several generations lived under one roof. If the parents had to go to work the grandparents supervised the children. Nowadays, it is often different unfortunately: Employees need to be more flexible in order to succeed in their job – but that this also requires adaptable child care, is a real problem, especially for single parents.

Dear Ladies, 

have you ever heard of bore-out? Especially older people experience how boredom will suddenly arrive in their lives and know the partly devastating effects that are triggered by this state of mind. Meanwhile physicians also indicate that seniors are relatively frequently affected by the so-called bore-out. This term actually comes from work psychology and signifies a condition triggered by mental underload with very similar symptoms to burnout.

All the best for Mother – and Father’s Day

Dear Family, dear Granny,

this year the first week in May is very special: As in Germany Father’s as well as Mother’s Day will be celebrated in the same week (5th and 8th of May). As close as both dates are together this year, the differences between the two could not be greater: Where as Mama traditionally is spoilt with a sumptuous breakfast in bed and a huge bunch of flowers on her day of glory, the German Daddies prefer an outing with their fellow men and a handcart on their feast day.

Dear Families,

If both kids and job are waiting, then parents know the day just doesn’t have enough hours. It requires a lot of skill and organizational ability to combine both important aspects of life so that no one gets a raw deal. How nice it would be to have another pair of helping hands on board, to give support in tackling all the jobs to be done, especially if the own parents live far away.

Dear Granny, dear Family,

Easter is the celebration of spring, the time where nature awakes to new life all around! And we humans start new enterprises with energy and fresh courage! Why not try out something completely different? Travel the world as a temporary grandmother and discover how nice it is to find a new home abroad. Or re-organise your daily life as a family: An au pair Granny brings a wealth of life experience into your family and relieves you with regard to daily child care. What are you waiting for?

Dear Ladies,

Reinhild would love to be a Granny. She had always dreamt of cuddling with the little ones, to dry their tears, to play with them and bake cakes. “What grandmothers simply do”, she says and adds: “My daughter, my only child, never wanted children.”

Dear Families,
In many countries Eastertime is coming closer rapidly and families around the world are looking forward to spending the holidays with their children, hunting for Easter eggs, decorating Easter bonnets, baking Easter cakes and much more. Holidays are a great time for children – and for parents, if they do not have to work then.
