So I've been nannying for this family for four years now, no increase in rates and to be honest I'm not so happy with the family dynamic and their parenting style has recently changed and not in a way I necessarily agree with. I'm soon to finish my uni degree at the end of the year and already have a job lined up and so I've kind of had the attitude to just ride it out.
Recently the mother text me (contact is rare might I add) informing me that they 'need' me to look after two extra kids which are friends of the children I usually take care of. Taking care of them that afternoon included driving them home, feeding them and then driving them to their after school activity, this also included driving past to pickup their sports uniform from the mother of the other children who was at home. I assumed 'needed' indicated some sort of emergency but apparently it was already arranged and they didn't Bother to inform me until 20 mins before school pickup time.
Regardless, no extra pay was given to me which I stupidly assumed. I had no contact with the parents when they left pay for me.
The children are under the assumption that this will be a regular thing and I want to know what and if I should mention it to the parents. I'm not sure of I'm overreacting and your advice would be appreciated.
Thank-you lovely nannies! x
