Complaint >> Posted: Oct 01 '15 by Judit in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany
I would like to report Enikö Balogh, who just spent 5 days with us.
At the beggining I informed her all about our family an house, eating habits and all. And she said all is fine, will be good for her.
On the 4th day of her stay she contributed to an accident (caused serious head injury) with our 21 month old baby. Enikö currently ways over a 100 kgs. I did not blame her I did try to carry on our functions normal.
Then the next day she burned completly our lunch.I did not fight with her or blame her just said "f...k it" and later I said sorry. She packed her bags and left without any responsibility, asking for her money although she worked little and did not take over the child care or household at all.
She states has experience with kids, but has none really and had no idea what to with our son, how to play with him, how to handle a child or how to communicate with him even when she tried.
She is not suitable for au pair, maybe only for household activities, but only when she is told what she has to do. For activities alone not really capable.
On her leaving, despite my request of sorting the matter out, she was very critical, antagonistic and was not willing to talk with me.
I would like that other families know about this situation of hers before they would employ her.
Thank you, Judit v N
