Tax Fraud. ...

I'm a live in nanny and I'm wondering if I should report my employer for tax fraud because they reported on their taxes as if I am self employedbut I am an eemployee in their home and they are my boss. My employment has ended and because I was given my notice due to the mother deciding to stay home I can't file for unemployment but I should be able to. I'm wondering if anyone can give me advice on this. Thanks

consistently late ....

The dad is the one who relieves me at the end of the day. Some weeks he's good about being on time and some weeks, like this one, he's not.

I'm just getting fed up. Monday he was nearly 20 minutes late getting home, then we still had to "chat about the kids. Tuesday (yesterday) he was late again, about 15 minutes.

It's a big deal to me because when he's late it sets back everything I do in the evening. I'm not allowed to come to work late... so he shouldn't be allowed to be late reliving me. I find it so disrespectful. I'd also like to point out that I've never been late.

At my wits end!

Okay, I was with my family for 3 years. During that 3 years, my boss had a sweet baby girl. I have cared for her since the day she came home from the hospital. Last year, I moved away. I was gone for 1 year, and I just moved back. The little girl is now 3 years old. I went back to my job, and my boss and the older children are so happy to have me back, and I really did miss them all so much. The older kids got right back into the swing of things, they know how I am, they are very respectful and good kids. But, my sweet, precious, perfect baby girl has turned into a monster.

I just got a stupid compliant

My MB criticized my shoes, because I have to... tie them! I wear sneakers, with arch support, nice ones. I need them for running after kids and paying outside. She said it takes to long for me put them on and it's not fair for her kids to wait on me. Wait what!?! I told her I need good support and she said get clogs (eww).

Has anyone dealt with something so nit picky? I dress nice yet ready to play and get dirty. I've never heard this even when I was 20.

THINKING ABOUT CHANGING CAREERS? ANY THOUGHTS?

Hello nannies: I have been a nanny for 7 years Full-time now. I started with two friends who had 1 year old toddlers, then moved into NB and 3 month old infants, which I thoroughly enjoy. For the last two years, I have had difficulty with families staying with the same nanny, me. Either they want to "go back to school" after one year of me being a private nanny for them OR they want to put toddler in day care to save money, OR they are relocating out of state, after they hired me for 9 months. Finally, this has forced me to get a Contract for 1 year with a family.

Leaving & Moving Far Away

So I need some advice. I have been with my current nanny family for a year, and I am leaving them next month to move from Pennsylvania to Minnesota with my husband. I am so heartbroken to be leaving them .. I have grown to love the children as my own, and even find myself missing them on the weekends! The children are ages 2, 5, and 7. I'm not sure how to deal with all the emotions of both myself, the children, and the parents. Everyone is pretty devastated. How do I make this transition easier for them and myself? What have you nannies given as presents to your charges before you left?
