Au-pair history?

Post  DeathOfRats on Tue 13 Nov 2007, 6:07 am

Does anybody of you know anything about the history of au-pairing?
When did it start, who had the first idea, in which country, ....

I want to know it for my Au-pair project for school. I think it's a good idea to write it there, but I didn't find anything about it.scratch
And if not for the project, I would like to know anyway. It's an interesting tihng.

Any ideas?Idea

Thank you very much, Linsday!
The articles are very interesting, especially the first two ones. I can see there were really tough days of au-pairing in the past.
