I am a full time nanny and the oldest is now in first grade and the one thing that really grates me is her parents refuse to do any sort of homework/school work with her. I have no problem helping her with homework and I do consider that part of my job but they need to be involved too. She needs extra practice with her spelling words and she is supposed to read 7 hours a week. I only see her 2.5 hours a day and I hate that we spend the entire time doing homework because if we don't it won't get done.
They have no clue what she's learning at school because they leave every bit of it up to me.
Am I really out of line expecting them to go over her spelling words with her and letting her read to them as well? Bedtime to me would be a perfect time to have her read to them and neither one does that.
