Nannie needs Advice!!

So I need advice the family I nanny for Their great. Except for when the mom and dad come home on their lunch breaks and have sex while I'm taking care of their child downstairs. I can hear them having sex or one time I accidentally walked in I feel SOOO uncomfortable with them having sex while I'm here working(yes I know people have sex and I'm all for it...... Just not when I'm ten ft away from them) my question is how do I approach them about this because like I said it makes me feel very uncomfortable and also kinda frustrated that they chose to spend their lunch break having a "quickie" instead of being with their child.

Here's some excellent advice ;):

Forget approaching them.

When they come home, greet them happily and tell them you were just on your way out. Take your charge to the library, park, playground, etc. Text them that you're on your way back before you return.

AAs uncomfortable as it is, it's their house.

I agree with Taleia. It is their home, they can hop in for a afternoon delight if they wish. Kinda awkward for you, I'm sure. But if you distance yourself from it, it's good that they choose to spend that time with each other vs their kiddo - they're way less likely to separate, and they are with the children when you are not there, so they make time for themselves to be a couple, vs just mom and dad! Taleia had a good idea of heading out when they come in, or being out altogether when they come in - I'm sure it's kind of awkward for them too, having a stranger home (or walk in on them!) when they do the deed, they probably prefer to spend the 'hotel money' on you, so everyone should be a winner.

I have to echo what everyone else has said. Good advice from Taleia to leave and go do something outside of the home with the child when they arrive. It's frustrating as a parent to have a nanny judge how you choose to spend your time when the nanny should be taking care of your child. I am with my children all evening, morning until nanny comes and all weekend. Lunch break is the only alone time I could have with my husband. You will find out if you ever chose to marry and have children, it's important to keep your marriage healthy too.

Is this real? Why would this be acceptable??? I would never have sex with anyone downstairs, let alone the person who watches my children every day. This is disgusting. Your employer's clearly have no respect for you as an adult. Why these other people are acting like this is normal and fine is beyond me. It's gross. No, you can't say anything, but honestly, if it was me- I'd quit.

PS- nanny is spelled with a y.

I was thinking the same, Annon. Have people lost their mind. Could be okay if house is large enough where you don't hear them. Like a totally different wing off the house. It must make for an awkward, uncomfortable work environment. Sounds like parents like the idea of nanny hearing them, or walking in on them. Freaks.

Oh really as a nanny you shouldn't be expected to leave the house every time parents are home. Not reasonable. Lol. Imagine, "hey let me know when you guys are coming home, so you can have sex in peace".

Perhaps a sibling in the making? Excellent for you as maybe it will extend your contract...

But seriously, let them get their rocks off while you keep the kid occupied. They deserve some adult time. Just leave their house so you're not bothered.
