Bad nanny


Hi

I just stumbled upon your blog about bad nannies. I have hired the worst con artist of all time. Was so sweet when i met her, I hired her for a part time live in nanny that only required an astonishing 30 hours a month in exchange for a nice room for $400 a month. I gave her a $500 credit in exchange. She jumped on it and pressured me for an answer right away. When I did my initial background check using a dumb advertised site and used her references (which were fake). I got stuck with someone who is a sociopath who never once tried to get to know my sone or help take care of him. She never once tried to get to know me. She shut herself in her room and said she was busy doing "Skype" interviews, which i found out she was doing facebook lives instead. She never helped when I asked her to help with my son. I ultimately fired her within 2 weeks and she has refused to leave since then. I have offered her help to move. She refused. I have overheard her talking on speaker phone how she wants to get me and hurt me. Including having me lose my home. She has put her hands on me and also has exposed my son to abusive behavior. I have learned now through a PI that she does this to get by. She finds a live in nanny position and will use that as long as she can before she is forced out. I highly recommend never having a live in nanny unless they have worked for you for a year or more. And I recommend having a PI do a real intense background check. This fraud has taken over my home and I no longer feel safe in my house even though I am continuing to pay for everything without having a job due to the pandemic.

Please post this online about Chynna McFarland. She also has multiple alias's and soc sec numbers.

Thanks

Rant - I am a Woman Married To A Woman and I Do Not Know WHAT You Are Telling Nks

I am very careful to not talk about my private life to your two wonderful children but THEY keep bringing it up!They keep asking me about "my husband" and I have your permission to tell the truth and say I have a wife. But the NKs keep saying things like "it's better if I choose a husband" and "Girls should not marry girls" and "boys should not marry boys". Somewhere they are getting this and I am about to really tell them that we can love whomever we want and it's ok. I have been just saying we will not talk about that but I am ready to teach what is right - fair warning

Getty Fires Illustrate Unfair Situation Of Nannies

It's pretty sad how many MB's treated their nannies during the Getty Fires in California a few months ago. A more dangerous sense of entitlement is not easy to find. While the rich employers evacuated the area they could not be bothered to communicate with their nannies and other workers and caregivers to tell them to stay home from life threatening danger. So many nannies trudged up the hills, afraid of being fired or losing a days work. Fortunately,there may be change, there are government reps working on it. The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights Act is supported by Sen Kamala Harris and rep Pramila Jayapal. We would like to hear any feedback and examples - shame on those MBs, but hope all are safe !

Nanny Not Happy Dad Frequently Late

Stupid Former DB ;(

Do you think because you make a TON of money you have the right to lie to me and be late all the time? You told me you would be home at 6pm and I told you about my anniversary of me and my husband. The you called to ask if I could stay till 8:30. You did not care at all when I explained again this would make me late for my anniversary plans and you showed you class by hanging up on me. Even at midnight you would not respond to my call or text. What kind of father are you? Thanks for finally responding saying what a great time you were having with some - date - your word not mine and how important it was for your ego after your wife left you.Even though I have quit - my hubby wants a few words with you! me- I am like your ex-wife I want nothing to do with you, I am very sorry for your kids - they do not deserve this!

Miss Manners Advises Nanny On Etiquette

Dear Miss Manners:

I work as a nanny and really enjoy the family I work for. I do not own a car and commute almost exclusively with my bicycle, which is therefore very precious to me. Unfortunately the other day NK's dad left the garage door open, and my lovely bike was stolen.Today Mama and Papa gave me a sum of money nearly equivalent to the cost of my lost property and apologized for their carelessness.

This was very generous and will help me get back on the road soon, but I am wondering what my obligation is in thanking them.I am usually very good in writing formal thank you notes for gifts, but since this was a reimbursement for an accident and not a gift, one part of me thinks my verbal thanks is enough and we can leave it at that.

On the other hand I love this job and these people, and not everyone would have been so generous in their apologies ( or even apologized at all!)I would, of course, love to show my appreciation. Can you help me out on this one?

Dear Gentle Reader:

What a relief. Miss Manners was fully expecting you to tell her that Papa's reaction was more like "It's my garage door and I should be able to open it whenever I like." She is pleased to see that all parties are behaving civilly and that you are only asking how to make the situation better.As the transgression was on the part of the family, a profound verbal thank-you is fine, and a written one not strictly necessary. However, an abundance of gratitude, as well as the reinforcement of gracious and proper behavior, is never remiss,and this is an opportunity to tell your employers how much you value them
