An au pair is someone who travels abroad to offer live-in help to families including childcare. Most au pairs travel to learn about different cultures or a different language while they work. Au pair literally means living equally so it is a great way to mutually help each other out while earning a small stipend. Work hours are usually set by agreement between the family and the au pair and because this is somewhat an informal agreement, there might not always be a contract.
