Newsletter Families - Granny Aupair: Mother-in-Law, temporary Grandmother or good Friend?

Dear family,

Having a Granny Aupair in the house is definitely a great relief - you don't always have to worry about your offspring and can keep your mind free for other tasks. And yet some young parents are wary about contacting a Granny Aupair: What if you don't get along? After all, women of this age have a lot of experience, will they be willing to listen to younger parents? 

These doubts are understandable, but mostly totally unfounded. Due to their long life experience, Grannies know that everyone is different. Granny Aupairs adapt to the new circumstances and at the same time bring a breath of fresh air with them. A new person in the house always means change. But you can determine whether this will be positive or negative right from the outset: Talk to each other beforehand on the phone, by Skype or Facetime, and/or exchange views by e-mail. That way you can quickly find out whether you agree on certain subjects.

There are no rights or wrongs here: what isn’t acceptable for one person can be ideal for another. With this freedom in mind, you can confidently embark on the Granny adventure and find out how this way of support can change your life. In many cases, the Granny Aupair even turns out to be a motherly friend who can enrich the life not only of the children but also of the parents. 

At the moment about 90 Grannies among others from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, the United States, Australia and Brazil are looking for a nice family to support with their life experience and gusto. We would like to introduce three of them to you below. And you can see more Granny profiles on our community

Very best wishes from

your Michaela Hansen und your Granny Aupair-Team


Warmhearted and organized: Granny Gerti

At very short notice, Granny Gerti (user name Gerti1964) would like to help out a family for four to six weeks in March/April or support someone as a companion. The 58-year-old career coach and family counsellor likes baking and cooking, walking and reading.

As a mother of two grown-up daughters and grandma of two small grandchildren, the Austrian has a lot of experience with children and is very keen about spending time with them.  In her profile she writes: "I want to be a support for the family (or a woman) and at the same time get to know the country and the people, possibly improve my English or learn a new language."
