Newsletter Families - Guilty conscience?

Dear Families,

the "child or career" question is foremost in mind of many expectant parents. Is there even a chance to get it right? Anyone staying home for longer, might lag behind regarding job opportunities. However, anyone who goes back to work early is often branded as a bad mother. So, as a mother, you can never really please everyone. Maybe it helps to answer the most important of all questions: How does it impact on the child when Mum goes to work? Various studies have shown that it can be beneficial for children, when mothers work outside the home. For example, children who were cared for by other people during the first two years of life develop fewer mental disorders later, and make linguistic progress more quickly.

But even if children have a place in kindergarten or nursery, this is often limited to only a few hours. Lucky are those who can count on the help of the grandparents: Many grandmothers and grandfathers like to take care of the grandchildren if they live nearby and have enough time. And if there are no grandparents nearby: Granny Aupair offers a true alternative. A responsible "temporary grandma" is happy to take over “grandparental duties” and with her rich life experience actively supports you in caring for your children, so you have time for other things.

We also would like to draw your attention to our special service for busy families. More about this below.   

Best wishes from 

your Michaela Hansen und your Granny Aupair-Team
