you are being paid the price of 1 child.the normal rate is 40 euro for 1 child.you are expected to take that for 3 kids,.u should be getting 10 euro an hr. you are getting around 4 euro an hour for 3 kids.do you have a car and how far do u have to commute.you need to be asking for around 60 to 70 a day.if u leave she wont get another minder at that price,keep us informed.

be firm but in a nice way.just say that you would like to have a chat about your wages when she gets home.she knows herself that she is under paying you..just tell her that 40 euro a day is the cost of minding 1 child.ask her for an extra 20.bring it up to 60.it is only fair that she does that as she has got away with it for 2 yrs.if she says no.then its up to you wether you stay on at 40 euro. or ask for a good reference and move on
