- One reason that Brazilians make good au pairs is that they are raised to be very affectionate and family-oriented. They tend to have been raised in an extended family environment. Therefore, Brazilians look to be treated as a true member of the family. Asking how their day was and including them in family activities and discussions is much appreciated.
- Brazilians love to share their culture with their host families. Asking them to share a tradition, recipe or teach the kids how to dance as they do in Brazil brings them much joy.
- Young people in Brazil have a very active social life. They go out with friends, to parties and discos. The most popular sports are soccer, volleyball and basketball. Teenagers also enjoy the famous Capoeira (a Brazilian kind of dance), martial arts, aerobics and dance classes.
