how thoughtless (him not you) whenever my bosss go away they have to tell me if they are coming back early morning as when I'm home alone i bolt the door (they just shut it which is locked from outside but still not as secure as locking it from inside too IMO). there has been a couple times MB has left keys in the door (could u imagine if we did it Roll Eyes)
i had one job where the parents were really lax and once she lost her keys "somewhere outside the house" and i completely freaked out and got the locks changed (they obs knew lol). i felt so unsafe and then about a week after i got fed up of the bomb site that was the car, was disgusting full of rubbish and half eaten food etc and as i knew the parents weren't going to do it anytime soon, it was an afternoon activity for the kids and the house keys were found in the car (which was parked on our drive) Shocked
ironically once me and 2 friends went out for the evening, got ready there (was all staying there) and even came down for a 'fashion show', they waved us goodbye and off we went, came back at 3am and they had bolted the door shut and wouldnt answer the phone. luckily after so much banging and i ws about to unlock the car and start with the horn mb woke up and let us in-i was so mad-and a little bit worried Roll Eyes Grin

Oh gosh thats even worse than my situation minime!

I just want to scream at db though, he is such a &%@!!!!!!!!!!!

We just had a talk, mb, db and I. And db said that sometimes its not left unlocked overnight and that it is because he has gone out in the am (fair comment, as he is semi retired and likes his garden) but that i should have to check it incase he hasnt locked it because he doesnt want to have to lock it everytime he comes in. Im not asking him to lock it everytime he comes in if he is in and out, so the last time he comes in before he either goes out or goes upstairs ect.

Mb agreed and said 'lets make a pact all three of us that we will lock it more often' ect and db was just like pff whatever. He really does not care, even when i bought up how much money worth of possessions could be taken, and even when mb said it would most likely be me with the child that would face an intruder.

It just makes me really angry that someone could be that self centred and not care about the welfare of anyone else that lives in the same house as him!

Sorry rant over!

I know how you feel. I had a boss once who would always leave his keys in the front door when coming in .. and then close the door behind him, forgetting them!! A few times someone would knock on the door and tell us, other times we'd find them there in the morning. The front door was less than 3 steps off the pavement as well! It used to really wind me up as my bedroom was the first one you'd come to up the stairs!
Sometimes you just can't get through to people no matter how many times you try!

Do you not have a section on illness in your contract? I never have (have as a nanny) but the eventuality is covered.

I get what your saying, but i dont feel like i should have to have the responsibility of locking up the house at night. I finish work at 5pm so they often are out in the garden after i finish work, so its not like i can lock up once i have finished work. They are the ones that shut the blinds, check the front door, turn off all the lights ect.
I need to know ways in which i can get my bosses to understand and to be honest just not be so lazy.
I have emailed them both now links to articles about homes being burgled with stats when doors are unlocked, and how their insurance would be void, as well as links to people being raped and murdered when their door was left unlocked. I hope that will help them see how serious this is.

I had bosses who were relaxed shall we say about home security. It got to the point I just got used to checking/locking the door myself as I had a basement suite so was closest to the door anyway. Their bedrooms were 3 floors up.  It took me 1 minute to do each night and meant I could rest reassured it was secure. Maybe just check the doors yourself if you can't rely on your bosses. It might be their house but it's your home too and as another adult living there you can also help in keeping things safe and secure?

Hi ladies,

Im after some advice as i am starting to get wound up and feel like my bosses dont care.

Im a live in nanny in a detached house in London. I have been in my job for almost 2 years. Over this time the garden door has occasionally been left unlocked, and when iv mentioned it mb has been apologetic and said they would double check it.
But over the last few weeks it is being left unlocked a lot, 1 night it was even left open a little. On thursday night i wrote a note (as i often had) saying that it was open and also said that everyone must lock it after coming in because i for sure dont want to wake up to find the house burgled (a house on our street was burgled feb holidays). For the first time nothing was said about it!

This morning i found the door once again unlocked and have txt both mb and db saying that we need to sit down and have a serious talk about it.

How do i get my bosses to understand how serious this is!?

If it's just for occasional work then I don't think it's worth it. It would be a rare family who stashed childcare vouchers when they didn't use childcare and if you're temping to cover a child or nanny's illness the vouchers are most likely going to them anyway.

Above what you would reasonably be expected to have it's 103 to register plus the DBS. Billing the ad job families just wouldn't work IMO so you'd need a higher hourly rate to absorb the cost
