Introduction

[August] As I past the age of being AuPair I continue to provide support to families as employee or service provider. Previously I assisted parents as AuPair in Oxford, London, Luxembourg, France, Geneva and I've been living eight years in UK working other jobs.

In my twenties I worked as AuPair one year long for one family, plus a cumulative year for others. My role is to drive children to after school activities and to supervise them. For families who need up to 20 hours per week I accept them to pay what they consider to be fair, based on performance, like in a free market. When families require more than 20 hours per week or more effort I expect to be paid a full time salary; When the family arranges the legal paperwork, employee rights and other requirements, they are considered the employer and can make the terms and salary, usually for a part time work. When I provide a domestic service with no contract and sort out my paperwork, I make the terms and the rate of pay, usually for a full time work; For each reference I'm requested to give I ask families to provide two recommendations from their previous childcarers.

Money is not a value to me and is not the unit I use to measure my service as I consider my service to be priceless. Pricelessness means that I don't charge for overtime work if it happens rarely and that money can not buy everything - for example if an employer cares about my well-being, I care about their well-being in return; For me being successful means that I don't have liabilities. I prefer to buy my own food and can keep my living costs small. The greatest value I discovered in life is health. The positive aspect I admire at the families I worked for is maintaining a healthy lifestyle, such as going early to bed, avoiding junk food, no smoking, no tatoos..

I observed that parents who discipline their children handle better leading employees and they get a better service. Families who dont have experience with headhunting are more satisfied with qualified providers but the higher price is worth it. This profile is intended for functional families, who seek a long term agreement, can train an assistant when necessary, who value getting things done and intellectual support and who want to delegate their tasks to me. For family problems I can only offer advice as consultant. I don't have the skills to work as live-in for: dysfunctional families (see Wikipedia), children who need intensive social or emotional support, who don't control their freedom or high energy drives, don't pay attention to what I have to say, or for dangerous work. I try to minimize the risks of my actions and I expect the same from children; When we both set our expectations right about what we seek foremost, we can then identify a great personality that can meet those expectations.

My personality is practical and my primary trait is reasoning. In the past I did excel in Mathematics when I passed few stages of the Olympiad and later I studied one year of Computer Science. I like efficiency and I can organize the whole housekeeping when the children are disciplined; I haven’t excelled at arts and crafts but I practiced: driving, sports, cooking, barbering; I like when children are active in asking me to teach or assist them with anything. It’s never too many questions a child can ask me until they become self reliant; I think that for boys to turn into great men they need to grow up around men, and in history such moment was marked by a rite of passage, when the boy is taken away from parents and learn not to cry being without them. Because women like to marry men who don't depend on their mothers; When people understand my terms, we can collaborate for more than one day; As time passes by I become less materialistic and I enjoy working for people who found their inner calmness. I do not own the land but the land owns me, and when I will die I will become one with the land.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” When I criticise constructively I avoid using labels (like 'stupid'), and use instead verbs, (like in "the fish does not swim"); Each personality has a less developed side, (that could be perceived as too noisy, too quiet etc) and for everyone to feel OK, I think personal space is important. A good practice at my one year long stay as AuPair was that the family provided for me a small chalet studio with all facilities and the separation between us was useful to maintain a sense of independence, which only strengthened our inter-dependence; I've always handled conflicts without leaving a scar on anyone and I also read books about this skill. For me fun means awareness of unnecessary wars; Please ask me questions about the words or the pictures I used in this profile to make sure you derived the right meaning that I intended. Please tell me about your personality types and your family.

Thank you, Nic
