How to deal with nice but chronically late

I started working for my current family 3 months ago. The mom and I get along great and I adore the baby I nanny but as employers, they're frustrating to deal with. The biggest issue is they don't respect my time. We originally agreed to salary but they were paying me hourly since they didn't work out the income withholding taxes with their tax guy yet. Thankfully they paid me extra when they were late but I never knew when I was getting off.

Nanny Resume help.

Hello everyone! I have a few questions about a nanny resume. When I first got hired as a nanny I did not have much experience with children so my resume consisted of my previous job experiences as a student, sales, and general managing. I am getting ready to update my resume. What are some nanny resume "musts"? I am also doing my own research online but there are so many examples and tips on what should be included. I just want to make sure I am including the correct information that will stand out to potential employers.

Nannying for a friend...help?

I have been a nanny for newborns and todlers for 2 years, and have a job in the medical field working with newborns as well.
For reference, my medical job pays about $53/hour (but is very part time), my primary nanny family pays $16/hour for a 4 month old, and my friend pays me $12/hour for a 2 year old. My friend started me at $10/hour. ( the starting rate in my area is $15/hour, as the cost of living is astronomical.)

Was this fair?

I was recently a nanny for a lovely young toddler in London. I worked 30 hours weekly and was provided with room and board. The family only paid me 90 pounds per week, which is the equivalent of about $110 US per week. I had initially agreed to stay for one year, but gave notice after 4 months. The mom got angry and started yelling at me and told me that I was leaving her in the lurch and was damaging her son emotionally. She blamed me for putting her at risk of losing her home as she could not work without a nanny.

HOW DO YOU TELL YOUR NEW BOSS SHE NEEDS A HOUSEKEEPER!

I have been an infant nanny for 10 years full-time. Not all families are Clean. My new family of 6 months moved into this renovated home, some rooms are new, some old, while she was pregnant and while her mom lived here. They have been married two years and apparently she always lived at home, prior to being married. Her Mom helped her with the cleaning as she was pregnant. Mom moved away. This house, where I work everyday, has not been cleaned in 6 months. Both parents, my boss included, are pretty messy.

Flying with little ones

Hello! I'm just hoping for some advice, pointers, or feedback.... in less than a month I will be traveling with my nanny family. Going to Hawaii, and my daughter is coming along which is great for me! She is 11 and we will have fun.. The thing that mostly concerns me/ makes me feel a bit anxious is that the parents are leaving a few days early to have some quality time before we all arrive. That means I am flying 6 hours with an 11 year old, 5 year old, 3 year old, and a newborn! Have any of you traveled like this with your nanny children?? Any tips on keeping them entertained?
