Is it Normal to Be Fed Up With Total Melt Downs?
I am wondering how all of you nannies handle this situation, or just what you think of it. You know that moment, where you are literally about to FLIP OUT. It's one of those days where the kids are going nuts, will not listen to you, you've tried everything.. maybe you're grocery shopping or doing errands and they're being extremely rambunctious, and you're THAT mom/nanny at the store who has no control. Or, its 5pm and you're cooking dinner and the kids are fighting, screaming, running around crazy and it's taking all you have to not just scream at them? I am a great nanny, have been for 5+ years, and I love my job. But, I think we all have those moments where we want to just have a meltdown. It's just different when you are the nanny. It is your job to be there, to take care of them, to handle situations with care and with ease. Yet, aren't we all allowed to feel completely fed up once in a while? I know for me, it helps when a parent I work for confesses that they had a total "melt down" or "freak out" over the weekend. It makes me feel like, okay then, it's not just me. I don't know what it is exactly I am asking- I guess I just want to know that I am not alone!
