Did I do something wrong?

This post will be long! Sorry haha I want to use as many details as possible. I work for an on call agency and As soon as I got to the families house the mom told me she was nervous because it’s her first time using the agency. I told her it’s fine and I understand. I told her I have five years of experience as a nanny especially watching newborns. She then was telling me to do things with her child that I have never heard of before. So I was asking her a lot of questions and asking her to show me the specific ways she wants me to hold the baby and feed him.

Anybody else has zero feelings for the kids you watch??

I just want anybody else out there to tell me i'm not alone! Has anybody started a job and then discovered you don't feel ANYTHING for the kids? I started watching two babies a few months ago, i kept waiting for the love to come and bonds to be built but it's not happening. I loved the shit out of children at my previous job. Still do and see them regularly. These kids draw blanks. And it is extremely annoying to take care of babies if there is no love to make up for it. Help?...

Need advice!

Hey guys! So it’s me..again! Haha it seems to me that none of the jobs I’ve gotten, have worked out for me! (Womp) For those who haven’t read my last post: i take care of 3 kids. (4, 8, 10) i just really want to know what path to take...

The 10-year-old is literally the biggest pain ever he has the nastiest attitude he doesn’t care for discipline, he’s obnoxious, and worst of all just doesn’t care what you say to him.

I’ve never had an issue with the eight-year-old he’s literally the sweetest boy ever.

Taken advantage of or overreacting?

Hi there everyone! I'm new here and I've only been a nanny since August so I wanted to get some advice/reassurance from a forum.

I've been with this family since September and they have two young children ages 4 and 2. I love their children yet I feel the parents know this and take advantage of my flexibility.

Is it wrong to quit?

I've been with this family for a little over a year. Twin boys, one of whom is Autistic. Single mom. She's really been great, I have no complaints, really, about the position itself. That being said, I also feel really, really guilty about wanting to quit. Honestly, it comes down to time commitment. I have an hour commute both ways, which was fine for a while, but now I'm putting too many miles on my car and I've recently gone back to school and it's just too much. One of the boys is now in therapy every single day after school, and it's a half-hour drive each way. It's a LOT.

Anxiety over quitting

Looking for advice (or someone to tell me it’s ok really!) I am a part time nanny (approx 22 hours per week). I have been with them for about 6 months. I have two school aged children of my own, and nanny for three kids. My husband is a full time student and schedules his classes around my nanny schedule so he can be with our kids on the days I work. This semester, he is taking all night classes and was just offered a full time day time position. Which means I have to quit my nanny job.


Hi all! I am new to this support group and I have a few questions and would definitely appreciate feedback.

I'm going to start with some background information first and then get to the current situation so please bare with me. :)

I currently take care of a 2 1/2 year old girl, she is INCREDIBLY ACTIVE so i'm always moving haha! I work 38 hours weekly (9.5 hours 4 days a week, 8:30-6:00)I get paid salary based and it's under the table (my choice).. roughly estimated I get paid 14.47 hourly.

I need Advice- taken advantage??

I am desperately seeking advice. I can't tell if I'm just getting burnt out or I'm legitimately being taken advantage of. A quick background; I've been with this family for 3 years and along the way had my own baby and bring her with me. The kids are 9, 7, and 3. Then my child who just turned one. The kids adore my baby and my daughter loves them. The parents have always treated me well and I've felt blessed to have them as my NF. They are great people.
