This book takes a comprehensive view at the rise of hired domestic care in Sweden, where recent challenges to publicly-funded day care have resulted in growing numbers of nannies and au pairs. Featuring interviews from nannies and au pairs—as well as the families who hire them and the children they are paid to care for—Practices of Child Care in Sweden examines the situation of in-home child care from all sides. Eldén and Anving reveal tensions between the expectations placed on the role of an au pair and what the job actually entails, revealing what is most crucial for understanding truly effective child care.
