So there have been so long breaks and unexplained absences. There has been some spam, some shit talking and some blog bashing. We were kind of back, but now we're really back. If you want to read the blog, read the blog. If not, don't. If you've been around forever and still check in, we owe you our lives!
Nanny with best resume gets her resume posted on a ISYN.
(submissions will be posted on a weekly basis subject to quality of resumes)
My Nanny Cost Me:
I received a submission from a woman with a wild tale of how her summer nanny ended up costing her family over a hundred thousand dollars. She suggested, surely other people's nanny's have gotten them in financial hot water? How, you may ask? Stay tuned. If it happened to you, send in your story.
Don't Work For:
A black list of employers to be avoided and why.
Some nannies have to do the strangest things as part of their daily and weekly routines. Anything that's been requested of you that you care to share? This would be something you comply with and why.
The one that got away:
The nanny/employer relationship is very personal and at some point conflict will arise. Employers and employees have shared with us some of the concessions they wish they would have made or positions they regret not having stayed with. What about you? Have a story?
An ongoing Friday feature that will feature nanny salaries across the country. This is the form for submission:
Pay period: (i.e. 40 hours, 3 days, 2 weeks, 5 10 hours days...)
Method of payment: cash check other:
Taxes on the books or off:
Disposition of payment: (i.e. direct deposit, envelope of cash in the teapot, personal check handed to me at end of day)
Adjustments to pay: (raise started this week, docked for being late, includes 3 hours of overtime @ 20 per hour, reimbursed for $74 gas)
Pay supplements ( i.e. insurance, 501K, employer pays taxes, gym memberships, bonus, tip)
Look what we made:
A photo of a project, craft or confection your charge or child and you have made together, along with the instructions for readers.
Once a week, we will print a story submitted by a nanny or employer of their nanny/family vacation.
Look for our first story on Monday!
My Nanny and I:
Once of our contributors is actively gathering stories from adults who were raised by nannies. We even have a submission from a teen who has had the same nanny since birth.
Submit your favorite children's or childcare applicable quote for publication.
