This is just part of being a boss. Employees have good days and bad days. It's up to you to remind her of your expectations when she starts to slip - not after she has slipped so far that you are frustrated and considering firing her. [ Reply | More ]

So when she has a bad day I assume she is just having a bad day but then somehow the bed day turns into worse etc. I don't know what triggers these declines in performance. I don't know what makes her resentful all I a sudden. We pay well, job has gotten easier over time. I don't know how to address it when I see that she is back to resentful and slacking. She always denies resentment and has a reason for all performance slips. For example she will say that kids didn't feel like going to playground or children really wanted cereal for dinner and so she didn't make dinner. [ Reply | More ]

Well sometimes crying children need to be ignored under certain circumstances. Do you know for a fact that she is intentionally slamming the door or perhaps this is just how she closes a refrigerator doo? That's an easy fix, simply say "Hey, please be careful when you close the door.". I fail to see what you having to cook dinner has to do with anything unless your expectation is that she do this and she agreed to be more than a nanny when hired. [ Reply | More ]

I know you're trying to be nice, but giving halloween candy to a shelter after halloween is over, is basically, "here, have some leftovers that we didn't want, we couldn't be bothered to think about you and your kids on the actual holiday". It's kind of shabby. If the candy isn't halloween-branded, I'd hold on to it until TG and drop it at the shelter for their TG dinner. [ Reply | More ]

I take your point. And you are probably right at least in nyc.

Willing to make the extra effort to drop or send somewhere like that but don't know where. It's definitely Halloween candy. [ Reply | More ]

They're just voicing the same resentment childfree people have had for years.

Learn to embrace change, and just plain learn from the next generation, because we can tell you, again from experience, that the next generation has a lot to teach. A little humility goes a long way.
