I have been doing this job that I have now, for about three years. Each year seems to get worse. The five year old now knows how to give everyone the middle finger and he now says the word faggot. I told the dad and he thinks it's cute! The only punishment the dad gave was no ipad for a day! The five year old hits his baby brother constantly and he never gets punished for that either. I am about to walk simply because there is no rules in this house at all. There are two older half brothers and they never do as they are told either.
I have been a nanny for a new family for about 7 months. The parents are nice and I like them enough but I am starting to feel taken advantage of and resenting my job.
My original hours were 7:30-5 and have since changed to whenever they need me. Sometimes starting as early as 6:30 and not leaving until 6 pm.
What would you do? She was 31. I was their nanny for 2 years. I loved her and her children like they were my own. We were so close, like kindred spirits raising these little humans together. Her 5 year old daughter found her. I took care of the situation and kids as best I could, the best I could, and I did a damn good job.
Just wondering how families are supposed to deal with us nannies being called for jury duty. It says flat out on the jury summons that you cannot be excused due to employment but do I have to use a vacation or sick day in order to go? I also got one that is requiring two different days to report and that is just those two days...what if I am put on a jury? What they pay is 1/4 of what I make on a regular work day.
Has anyone dealt with this and if so how was it handled?
I love my 16month old charge but he refuses to nap in his crib or anywhere without me.he sleeps from 10:00 to 12:30 on a blanket that's on the floor but i have to be there if i make a bit of noise or even move nap time is over.this has become very frustrating for me and worst of all now he wakes up all the time and doesn't fall asleep until 3:00! I have tried rocking ,walking ,books you name it.i also tried sleep training and had bad results.he just yelled and pooped himself everyday. Is he overly attached?
Hello, I've been a nanny for almost 3 years and I basically been working everyday non stop. Am I the only one who finds it hard to make friends? I've relocated for a new job, so all of my old friends are back at home & it's so hard for me to meet new people because I'm always working and I'm not working with anyone. I try to look up other nanny groups to see if there are play dates or just other nannys who just want to talk about what's going on in their life/job. Am i the only one? I don't know maybe I'm crazy.
My employer is a twenty or thirty some years recovered heroin addict but it has come to the attention of my coworker and I that he may be planning on relapsing.
I'm live-in for four kids. He's had trouble paying me lately, I'm trying to work with him to get through this tough period (his divorce hearing is on the 4th and work has been slow) but if he relapses that is something I am completely unwilling to work through/can't pick up the slack from. I have barely enough money left to get a ticket to a friends and start over if he doesn't pull through this.
This is my first post. I was wondering what bad weather policies everyone has? Do you not go if schools are closed, or if local daycares close? What makes you cancel for the day? My car can handle most any weather, but its the other drivers on the road / road conditions that bother me. Also, do you think nannies should receive hazard pay if they go in ,in hazardous conditions?
I just got invited on a ski vacation with one of my part time nanny families. Kids are 9 and 12, I drive them around and primary work on homework I make 220/week for 14/hours. This is for school year- not school-breaks(I make more in the summer for more hours and driving).
