For families

NEED AN EXTRA AU PAIR OF HAND?

Late in the afternoon your daughter suddenly remembers that she is due to write a test the following day – and needs some last-minute help. Your son has to be picked up from his music lesson and you have another appointment. The parents' evening at school coincides with the dinner you scheduled with your business partners, and your babysitter already has other plans. Does this sound familiar? For many of us it's everyday family life – there are many fires to put on and not much time to get them all done. Of course, you're always looking for ways to manage things better, to have more fun and less stress with all the different demands that come up in a modern family.
