Know that you need help juggling all the areas of your life but not sure where to start? For many women, the pressure of trying to manage raising children with the running of a home and a career (not to mention their own health, their marriage and their social life and any hobbies) is just too much.The young girls who were told by the first wave of feminists that they could have it all are now grown women struggling with trying to manage having it all.
If this sounds familiar to you, then getting help, or letting a few of the balls fall to the ground, might be all it takes to help restore a bit of balance to your life and make you a happier, calmer and therefore healthier person.Help around the home and with your children could free up a great deal of your time and save some vital energy. The extent of the help that you employ depends on your circumstances.If you feel that having someone for a few hours a day helping with light housework and childcare would make all the difference, and your family would prefer the informality of having a younger person in the household from a different culture, then perhaps you should consider an au pair?
But, if you have a cleaner and really need more formal, structured and full-time childcare support, a traditional nanny would be more suited to your needs.Working out what you need is only half the battle. That is why many parents enlist the help of a nanny agency in London or an au pair agency in London.Finding the right au pairs in London (or nannies) can be time-consuming and stressful. For those with no experience of hiring childcare workers, the discovery of a nanny agency in London or an au pair agency in London can feel like a lifesaver.And if you aren’t sure if you should be looking for au pairs in London or a nanny, then a chat with an experienced agency should definitely be your first port of call.
