quitting

How horrible would it be?

So I am quitting my life-in nanny position and I am trying to consider my options on how to go about it. I have no written contract (on of my mistakes that I have learned from) and verbally agreed to working for a year.
It has been 3 months and I absolutely cannot do it. I feel as though I am compromising the child care provider I want to be everyday for these parents and I don't like it. On top of that, getting paid from them has been such a struggle. Last month I technically worked for free because I just now (August 1) got paid for the entire month of June.

Fed up with nannying

I have been a nanny for 7 years and I am thinking of not working in this field anymore. I have come across too many people who want to lowball and try to take advantage of me even when I am so straight forward and communicable. Too many families I have seen on care.com or other sites who say they need part time or full time care. We talk about wages and I go to the interviews. I have questions for them as well. Then they say they only want to pay me a really low salary below min wage an HR, or say they only need occasional care!

I want to quit

I have worked for this family for 6 months and i cant handle it! there are 2 boys, 8 years and 11 years. The 8 year old acts like a 4 year old!!!! He is spoiled beyond belief with their credit cards and the endless things they get away with. The only punishment option they gave me is to take away his ipad, and now during the summer only some of the activities can be taken away. He throws tantrums constantly, usually lasting about an hour. he has no respect for me or his brother. He spits on his brother, hits and screams till his face is red with rage!

Resignation Breaking Verbal Agreement - No Contract

Hi There,

I've been employed by this family since I graduated college less than a year ago. Upon hiring me, the mother hesitated stating she was nervous that I would get a real job and leave them high and dry after a few months.

Awful resignation experience

I have been working for a family for almost 1.5 years now. I've always felt super underpaid (I make $10 an hour and do grocery shopping/errands/children's laundry/all bedding/et.) but I found out last Saturday that the government was giving me enough aid to go back to school full time. I gave my notice the following Tuesday (July 19) and let them know that my last day would be the Friday before school started. It ended up being a 3.5 weeks notice (25 days), but my boss flipped out. First she started telling me I wasn't allowed to quit.
