Nanny

Should I get a new job?

Right now i work for an on call nanny agency. I don’t see many hours most of the time. I’m lucky if I get 40 hours a week. My cases (jobs) depend on which areas I choose to work. The more areas I choose, the more cases i will get. Right now, I choose the closest areas to me to work in. I don’t want to have to drive super far with traffic any day of the week, so I usually stay close to my house unless my manager asks me to take a case that’s outside of my regular city limits. I work with differnt families almost every day. I love working with kids.

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?

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.

Best age to take care of?

I took on a job for 3 kids ages 5-9. It was a mistake, because it is my very first time nannying and even though the kids are overall ok, the work load is immense. The family has cleaners coming in regularly so the house is not that hard to maintain, but I am having a hard time keeping myself together physically and mentally. I get paid $16/hr.

First Overnight, HELP!!

Hi guys , so I live in Texas . The family I am working for currently is expecting a mother child on the way so I'm set to work overnight when the mother has her baby .
They have a two year old boy and I can't for him 3 days a week from 8am-6:30pm . I get paid 11 an hour , but with this overnight I have no idea what to charge.
We figured a flat rate would be best since we don't know when she's going into labor. What do you guys think would be safe bet ?
