Au pair experience ... do you recommend it?

Hi everyone, a question:

I am 19 years old and I am thinking of having an experience as an Au Pair.

Do you recommend it? Is it a good experience?

Do you think it is dangerous (going to live in a house with a family)

Dangerous for my safety?I don't know, I have so many doubts, in fact I'm wasting my time to honestly think I want to have this experience (if there are dangers)

I will have my privacy (I will have the key to the room and other stupid examples)

The agency would be:

Is it a good agency you can rely on?

Would you recommend the au pair experience?

Ps: I have a lot of experience with children, especially in my family

    If you want to do this, then you should go through a reputable agency that matches families and au pairs. It takes care of background checks for both parties, which increases safety for both the au pair and the family. That's not to say that there aren't still potential dangers; if you don't feel comfortable with a family, then you should decline working for them. I have no idea if the agency you referenced is reputable or not. As for whether the experience would be "recommended," that's hard for anyone to say. If it's a job that you think you'd enjoy and will help you save up some money, then sure. I wouldn't recommend it as some sort of life experience or rite of passage.

    you'll get used up working for nothing, what if they expect sexual favors?
