Punctuality in every instance of life is appreciated. I know that it may seem a little ridiculous to think that you need to call home if you are going to be late once you are a parent, but guess what? Those rules from high school still apply.
I have been a babysitter and nanny to a variety of families over the years, and the one common denominator between all of them is that each and every parent has stumbled home drunk on more than one occasion.
I get that you do not want your overly sensitive wimp of a kid to be hurt, but you are running out of options.
Let me preface this by saying that I love children, but some children are a nightmare and I blame you, their parent.
I hate to sound greedy, but if you want me to clean your house you are going to have to pay me more than $10 an hour.
Your kid is not exceptionally talented. In fact, she is just a big pain in the ass.
You are the mother and career woman who cannot strike a balance and because of that your kids are suffering.
No, this is not a joke. Let me introduce myself, I'm one of your many babysitters. Maybe you don't remember me because you have so many, but you trust me with your children's well-being on an hourly basis.
