W2-1099-schedule H

Need to decide which option is best:
Schedule H

I started working for a family at the end of October for $625 a week. They were paying me under the table, but since it’s a new year, they would like to put it on the books. She offered to raise my pay to $700 to cover the difference once taxes out.

I figured if i went with the W2 choice, maybe she would do $500 on the books and $200 under the table. But i believe if she brings this to her accountants attention they would say no.

New Nanny

Hey everyone. Well tomorrow is my first day transitioning to full time nanny. I know the family and children already but still nervous. I’m needing help with coming up with activities for the 1 year old which will be 2 in March. The newborn I can handle.

Terrible twos?!?

Hi there. I just started nannying for this family about a week ago. I've been nannying/babysitting for about14 years now and have always have a pleasant experience. This is not the case. I am the nanny of a newly 2 year old boy who throws multiple tantrums/ meltdowns several times a day. I worked really hard to get this position(not knowing how bad he is) and I really like the mom but I just don't know how/ if I can do this. I cried the whole car ride home today. Any advice?!? I don't wanna let the family down but it is miserable. Maybe I'm just not cut out for it?

Please Help

I have been working with a family of 3 kiddos for 8 months. 9 year old twin boys and a 4 year old. They all attend school but the 4 year old goes 9-1:30 everyday. I work from 6:30am to 3pm on Wed and Fri. I work a split from 6:30-10am then 3-6:30-7pm on Tue/Thu to Help with homework or watch the 4 y/o while she’s helping them homework.

Finally Might be Leaving

After three years of being with a family whose child I love, but a mom who is not a good person and treats me like I’m nothing but a regular employee, I’ve finally met my limit. Her daughter asked if I was family and she told her no she is not family, we pay her to watch you becuase we have to work. And that was that, now I have a confused three year old asking my why her mommy said this becuase she thought I was family. And she just started saying “You are not family becuase mommy said you are not family” and that has been heartbreaking for me.

Nanny Cam Headache

I am full-time nanny . I have three families I have the one Jewish family where I watch there 1.5 year old twins . A social person I love lunch dates with kiddos picnics and ect. I'm not allowed to fee dthem anything not even kosher organic food I can't feed them at all. Meaning when it's time for me to eat I have to eat hiding from both twins so I won't tease them by not sharing. They pay me about 300 dollars a week and they are paying me during Passover while they will be out of town. In total they have 5 kids but I only watch the twins.

Sittercity & care website problems!

Hey there! Sadly there's been a lot of bad things happening. I was first on Sittercity and care when those sites were brand new. Both websites have been big problems. They delete your account if you call in and complain about a bad experience with a parent(s)/families you have worked for or interviewed with. Its really weird! I called in yesterday to complain about a parent to Sittercity who was previously on care.com who don't even have kids!


Nanny family divorcing

Hi, I’ve been with my current family nearly three years. The parents have decided to divorce, though I’m not sure how soon. Realtors are coming tomorrow so I guess it’s imminent. The kids are 5 and 3 yr old twins. I’m hoping for advice on the best way to support the parents and kids through this time and if anyone has any advice for things I should particularly be sure to do or not do. I’m hoping to hear from nannies who have been through this as well as parents.
