MB talking behind my back

I have Been nannying part time for a family for 2 years. I have Grown with their family and shared the joys with them when they had a new baby. Today like usual i was Watching the kids and like usual MB was running late. MB texts to let me know she is on her way home and asked if the kids are asleep. I explain That one is having a bad day and I’ve tried to put the child to sleep twice with no luck.... she texts back (but didn’t mean to text this to me) “she is so weird, she just bitches to me me about my kids” do i continue To work for them? Is it time for me to quit?

College, back to school

I'm only 19. I've been with this family for one year already. I wanted to go back to school for fall semester which started in august and do part time, but the family needed me and forced me to do online courses. I'm drained from working here, I care for an autistic 2 year old and end up cleaning the whole house, dishes from night before and 2 loads of laundry a day, including parents and it's downstairs. Oh to top it off, grocery shopping with the child twice a week. Anyways, school starts again in January.

Family always going out of town

Has anybody nannied for a family that is always going out of town?

I nanny for a toddler m-f, 40 hours a week. (most weeks). Both of their jobs are very flexible, and all of their family lives either out of state or out of the country.

This summer they traveled out of country and paid me for the time they would be gone, before they left for their trip. They extended their trip and when they arrived home they paid me for the extra weeks they were gone.

What do i do?!

Hi guys! So i posted about 5 months ago about my nightmare job and what to do, i found a new job that paid me more and was relatively closer to my home. Its been about 4 months since i quit and sometimes i can’t shake the feeling that i might’ve signed up for something worse.

How to deal with nice but chronically late

I started working for my current family 3 months ago. The mom and I get along great and I adore the baby I nanny but as employers, they're frustrating to deal with. The biggest issue is they don't respect my time. We originally agreed to salary but they were paying me hourly since they didn't work out the income withholding taxes with their tax guy yet. Thankfully they paid me extra when they were late but I never knew when I was getting off.

Nanny Resume help.

Hello everyone! I have a few questions about a nanny resume. When I first got hired as a nanny I did not have much experience with children so my resume consisted of my previous job experiences as a student, sales, and general managing. I am getting ready to update my resume. What are some nanny resume "musts"? I am also doing my own research online but there are so many examples and tips on what should be included. I just want to make sure I am including the correct information that will stand out to potential employers.

Nannying for a friend...help?

I have been a nanny for newborns and todlers for 2 years, and have a job in the medical field working with newborns as well.
For reference, my medical job pays about $53/hour (but is very part time), my primary nanny family pays $16/hour for a 4 month old, and my friend pays me $12/hour for a 2 year old. My friend started me at $10/hour. ( the starting rate in my area is $15/hour, as the cost of living is astronomical.)

Was this fair?

I was recently a nanny for a lovely young toddler in London. I worked 30 hours weekly and was provided with room and board. The family only paid me 90 pounds per week, which is the equivalent of about $110 US per week. I had initially agreed to stay for one year, but gave notice after 4 months. The mom got angry and started yelling at me and told me that I was leaving her in the lurch and was damaging her son emotionally. She blamed me for putting her at risk of losing her home as she could not work without a nanny.


I have been an infant nanny for 10 years full-time. Not all families are Clean. My new family of 6 months moved into this renovated home, some rooms are new, some old, while she was pregnant and while her mom lived here. They have been married two years and apparently she always lived at home, prior to being married. Her Mom helped her with the cleaning as she was pregnant. Mom moved away. This house, where I work everyday, has not been cleaned in 6 months. Both parents, my boss included, are pretty messy.
