Hello Bub Hub parents,
I am a Nanny and work for a family with two little girls.
A bit of a brag but I am brilliant at what I do and take pride in my work. I don't see it as just babysitting, I feel as though I have a huge capacity to influence a little one's life for the better. I can with amazing references & have gone above and beyond for the family - even doing their child's birthday decorations & making a giant butterfly. I also make sure the house is impeccable and do more chores then I probably should.
In the past I've been treated brilliantly - I loved my job and the families were grateful to have me and treated me so well. The family I am with now don't seem to care about what I do, I barely get a thankyou - it's like they just sort of expect it.
I work four days a week & found out they won't need me over Christmas from the 23rd until the 6th January but apparently they may need one or two nights babysitting. I've been given one week's notice. I'm upset about this as I gave them 4 months notice for my 3 week holiday. There were no apologies they just said how it was and then peppered that they would do something about pay over this time - who knows what that means though.
This has happened in the past but this time & I didn't take pay or mind. I do with this family because I work for them 30 hours a week & it's less than a week's notice over Christmas so it's a lot of pay that I am losing. I usually do other work during school term but at the moment this is my only job.
in the past I've been honest and direct but I feel like that only works with people that are reasonable and caring. I just don't think they're those sort of people.
i would love advice from parents
