They both go to a prestigious school and the younger has normal resistance to homework like 'do I have to' and "YES!".
The parents aren't there to see this but they want the homework done by the time they get home because they don't want to deal with it. When I complained about being hit by the kid, they looked at me like I was silly. At one time I suggested he get extra help at school or a tutor and they got mad at me for trying to get out of doing my job. The father told me once that if I couldn't do the job, he could find someone who could.
I have anxiety every day M-Th because I know it is going to be an issue. I have tried everything. Here's the kicker. I have only been here five months. When the child is carrying on screaming, swearing, he even threw pepper in my eyes once, he screams "JUST DO IT FOR ME" and "I want Gracie back". Gracie was their last nanny who couldn't deal with his behavior, so she just did his homework, making it harder for me! We have one week of school left. But guess what? Summer enrichment program is July and August, 4 hours a day and homework. If things don't change with the enrichment program, I don't see what option I have except to just do it for him. It would be faster and more peaceful and my job would be easier. And part of me thinks that's what these parents want, because they sure can't handle hearing about any problems.
Anyone have any advice before a good nanny goes bad?
