  • Help


    The main work is based around helping mum with the 3 kids.
    In the mornings it involves helping getting the kids ready and driving them down if need it,staying with the young one at home while mum takes the other ones to activities. Play with them to keep them active. We have lots of Lego to put together and playmobil, those are the favourites. of the boys. But new things are always interesting to learn.

    There is some help as well with housework and cooking if the workaway person likes it , otherwise mum cooks,sometimes babysitting at night if parents go out. Normally mum does it all, so it is not an everyday obligation, just voluntary.
    Average working hours per day 4 to 5. A little bit of work sometimes on Saturday mornings if there is something going on, but weekends are normally free, unless parents go out for dinner.

    The house in Spain.
    The house has a mid-size swimming pool , all kids know how to swimm already. There is a playground area and a decent sized climbing wall in the garage with a moon wall included.
    The family helper would have their own bedroom and bathroom.
    There is also a little house in case the work away helper needs a bit more independence.

    Help needed would be needed September and October and maybe other moths.
