How to get over homesickness as an au pair?

Homesickness is something almost everybody goes through, when moving abroad (or simply moving away from home). Being in a new country, learning a new language, having strangers around you can feel very scary and that is when you easily feel homesick. Homesickness means you don`t really miss everything about home nor does it mean you should just pack your bags and go back. It means you miss the feeling you have at home - being safe, loved and looked after. And there are ways to get over it sooner rather than later. Here are a few tips to read about what to do when you get homesick. We also have a post about how to combat homesickness and make friends when you first go abroad. Make sure you talk to your host parents when you feel homesick. It is important for them to know how you`re feeling, and if they have had au pairs before, they might also have some good ideas on how to help you.
