I am currently nannying 4 teenagers. I find this incredibly hard as the kids are older and are not into fun simple activities. The kids also cuss and physically harm each other. I try my best to be an friendly authority figure but regardless the kids still steal things and hide things from their parents. I have good moments in my job but I feel bad about it most of the time. I disagree with their parents harsh (polite way of saying it without the details) way of parenting. I also know one of the parents is not a stand up person. I can already see the family dynamic is toxic but they supply a really good job. I only work 30 hours a week and make far above minimum wage which allows me to live on my own and pay for schooling. I am at a loss for what to do.
Have you stayed in a job you know you hate because of the perks? I also want to be a light for this family but it’s coming at a cost of my own sanity and well-being.
