I often get the question what exactly is room and board. The Aupairs receive their weekly stipend of $197.75 and room and board. So Room is, they get their own private room with a door on it and this is their private space. Kids should not be allowed in the aupair room unless the aupair invites them in and everyone should always knock before entering the aupairs room. It is her/his private place. Board is, any food and drink the aupair consumes. You may list certain foods as off limits to the aupair, maybe you have certain items that are expensive or hard to get and alcohol should always be off limits unless you offer your aupair a drink and then of course that is your business.
