Kids are innocent

Last two days, i was fuming mad with my maid. School holidays, my boys stay at home whole day, but i cannot see my maid feed them any fruits or their daily vitamins. If i don't tell her to feed she won't give, same goes to her work. Everyday i have to tell her what to do for the day, without telling her, she will just "loitering" at home, doing nothing, shake her leg, that is why i call her "my princess"!!

But when come to eating, playing, keepoing, she will be the first to be there. Talk about maid, i cannot stop to write more and more and more!! Now back to my story, i am telling my boys, next time if "kakak" don't give them any fruits, ask kakak for it, and if kakak don't give them any breakfast or water, ask kakak!! I have to teach them to ask kakak for fruits and drink and food. Two of them nodded their head, then Cruz ask me "mummy, i ask kakak and i said please?" I got stunt and speechless for a while, i don't know how to answer him, because i'm angry, but kids still don't know what is angry, they are innocent, i so so want to tell him, "no need to said please" but after that i told him "yes, said please kakak". :(

Maybe you just draw up a duty roster for her? At least save you from reminding her of the normal daily chores.

A friend told me that some1 she knows got point system for her maid 1...like if the maid forget something - minus marks, if the kids get sick - also minus marks cos means that she din feed them enuf water or vitamins, etc. The marks deducted will be equivalent to $x of her salary being deducted. She also got KPI for her maid 1. A bit 'siao' but seems to work for her...

Good answer! At least you know you still need to reinforce what you taught them despite the fact that secretly, you're dying to say "Whack her if she doesn't give!"

i guess you have to record down a daily to do list in a player and played it for her everyday!

anyway, you are right! the kids are innocent. we should teach them the right things at all times, despite our anger and frustration!
