Banking hours & misc

I've been a Nanny 4yrs now. My current NF is the only family that wants to "bank hours"=let me explain: the Mom said I had Tuesday, April 4 off & instead of NOT paying me, she paid me, thereby "banking" the 8hrs & then when she wants me to work & provide childcare on the weekends &/or some other day; she doesn't have to pay me since she already included pay for a day I didn't actually work.
This bothers me because I SHOULD BE paid extra, especially when asked to work on weekends &/or Holidays (Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day specifically) & yes, I worked back in September on Labor Day yet didn't receive any extra pay, although it was a holiday! Recently, I asked for a raise & was told they (both parents) were waiting until I've worked for a year before they wanted to consider offering &/or giving me a raise. So now, I'll have to wait because I'm uncomfy asking again. Oh! and the 3yr old has increased bratty-spoiled behaviour so I've been putting her nose on the wall, as a means of discipline; which worked...until Mom ventured upstairs (from the basement) earlier than expected & in front of the 3yr old, says to me, "oh no, No, NO! I do not like this at all" this Mom allows her 3yr old to disrespect her by screaming no, throwing tantrums, say "I'm the boss" etc...there's also an 18 month old who sees this behaviour & is now copying the 3yr old behavior!
As soon as I went home & got home that very day, I texted the Mom, asking to "have a conversation" with both parents to discuss discipline (methods & whays acceptable) & its been a month, with no conversation taking place. I made certain the Mom knows: I don't want to discuss discipline with just her & when discussion takes place, the children need to be watched by someone else so there's no distractions &/or interruptions. Anywho, has anyone else experienced a family "banking hours" & how do ya'll discipline a bratty-mouthy-spoiled 3yr old? Thanks for any feedback &/or advice!

Banking hours is Illegal. It's a modern day form of slavery-- crazy right; and illegal for that very reason.

As for the discipline-- the family needs to allow you do so some form that they are ok with-- if they are unable to agree, make time to meet, also help enforce, etc.... Then you are in an up hill battle. My only advice is: new family.
