Nanny and AuPair advice needed urgently
Hello, I want to ask for some advice regarding being an AuPair or Nanny in Switzerland.
I've been AuPair in more countries and recently I've been invited to this country to be a Nanny. Their children include a baby. Although I don't have any qualifications in this matter they tell me what I need to know.
The fact I'm concerned about is that the family didn't mention anything about a contract or registering me with the required authorities, and I know little about it from what I've read here. When I searched for health insurance I found this forum. Parents told me that I have to pay my health insurance, and one company asked me to pay for the whole period of staying. I paid it with my own money (beside the cost of air travel that I also paid). Some websites mention that the family should contribute for health insurance.
Parents are not bad people, except that I don't see them to discipline their children, and it takes a lot of time when they behave like 'fussy'.
For example if it takes half an hour or more, each time when one child has to put shoes on or I have to convince him to go a place where he has to or for playing, its totally ineficient for them and for me.
When children have too many options, I think wealth can be a problem sometimes.
More years ago I worked for a family for a long term because their child was so disciplined, such that it allowed me to do so many things in 5 hours per day. Beside childcare, I did full housekeeping, ironing, washing cars, even cleaning ovens and windows and gardening, absolutely anything, and I didnt mind because it was easier than the present situation.
This time the flexibility and the psychological effort they require drains me, and the payment is even less than before. However, I'm looking to help people who want to do things efficiently, not so much to earn lots of money. And because I found out about Switzerland being so strict and correct, I want to respect those rules.
Please advice what is the right way to proceed next ?
