Hi I’m a nanny for twins currently 20 months. I have a few issues and I can use some help guys.
A few months back the mom became confrontational over a lemon I left out. She asked me one morning hey did you leave this out? I said yes I’m sorry the girl weren’t feeling great yesterday and it totally slipped my mind. She said no problem just try to remember! I said ok I will. A few mins later she says and next time I ask you a question just either say yes or no I don’t need an explanation. This is just me guys I explain everything I don’t want anyone thinking I’m taking advantage or doing something out of bad intent. So it baffled me when she said that next thing I know she cursed at me and our voices escalated... she never apologized I was mad about it.
Next incident a baby sitter who was a teen put her cousin in a fridge and posted it on Snapchat which was so cruel. People are so crazy anyway I came to work one day and my boss printed the article and had it hanging on the fridge. I said is this forreal she said yes I said your really hanging up she said yes just in case people don’t know the rules refers to her mother in law and myself I told her I would never do something like that.
Ok so 2 months have went by I’m in a good space I change my attitude because I’m here to help the kids! She has never apologized to me but I know she won’t and that’s ok!
But here’s my real issue now I work from 6:15am 4pm or 11-7 depends on dads schedule 5 days a week and I only make 620 bucks a week for twins I do kids laundry meal prep for kids take kids out etc etc! I know for a fact I’m being underpaid and could make more I’ve been with them over a year I love the kids but the hours constantly changing and the lack of pay and the work load is leaving me working out! She gave me the 20 dollar raise back in June! so I doubt another raise is in the cards currently!! They aren’t bad people but I’m just tired I want to have a new job starting Jan but should I leave please help
