I love my nanny job. I have been with this family since November 4th.  The kids mom tells me her last day is May30th and then she says she won't need me after that.  She is a teacher.  Then she says her and her husband have been talking about if they are going to hire me back or not when school starts back up. I am in shock!   I went and got a safe vehicle because of her kids.   So they are traveling safely.  I stay until whatever time they need me to.  The kids and i get along great!  I get  along with the parents too. I need to know asap if they are going to keep me or get rid of me.  She did not tell me when she would have an answer about that.  I was going to tell her i need to know either way by Monday May12th.  What do you think?  I have bills to pay and I am going to have to get another nanny job fast!!!!! Am I right in giving her a specific day I need to know?

Yes, of course you should -- as long as you do it professionally and politely.  Also, if you need to find another family, you might try Great Au Pair . com  We have done searches for au pairs through them, but they have nanny jobs, too.  You also might consider a contract next time -- if you have any leverage -- so that it's  for a full year...

Yes, give her a date to let you know if they are hiring you back in the fall. You need to know to line up your next job.

I already told her anytime her and her husband need a date night or some time for themselves I am available.  She said if they need someone,I'll be the first one they call.
