I only have 5 days left with this job.
What the post was originally about doesn't matter anymore. It's the new nannies problem now.
It was the fact the mom was disrespectful at times. House always dirty only getting cleaned once a month or every other month. Always junk food food more then healthy , mom let the kids get away with a lot. Dad punished the kids for no reason at times, dad is whinny like a 2 yr old at times, they don't always tell me how doc appointments go expecially about meds, there always late, I could go on. But it's not my prob much longer.
I have nannied for several families, and the problem in the OP was an issue with just one of the families I was with for a few years. After a while, I suggested to the family that I would be more than happy to cook healthier foods for the children for lunch since they were asking me for my salad, fruit, or veggies that I would bring everyday for my lunch. Their parents didn't realize that their kids wanted stuff other than cheetos and chocolate, and oddly enough their parents started shopping for more produce, and as a result, the kids were eating up the fresh produce left and right!
Sometimes all it takes is a little communication to the parents about any concerns you have. If you have been taking care of these children for 6 months or longer then you have the right to bring up an issue like this to the parents in a calm manner and go from there. If they do not see it as an issue then don't argue with them, just leave it at that and remember even though you are responsible for the children while in your care, they are not your kids and it's something you don't have to worry about once you step foot out of their door.
I'm glad you are leaving, I was stuck in a similar situation and eventually had to leave as well. So disregard everything I just said but also in case you nanny for another family, keep that in mind!
Gamer will you hire me. Lol. That's all what I was hoping for.
I'm so attached to these kids and there attached to me. It's a bit obvious us 3 are 3 peas in a pod. Lol.
I've gotten the cold shoulder about this. It makes me sad. I get all my info from the 4 1/2 yr old. At least he is honest with me. The parents barely talk to me. Never said how the nanny looking is going , never told me they told the kids I'm leaving. They haven't asked if I'm still gonna be a nanny or do something else. NOTHING. : (. I feel I'm leaving them being ticked at me.
I won't be working for a while but if I decide to work it will be a part time nanny. I will need a reference letter. Ill ask the mom when the time comes.
