There comes a time when you have to do what’s right for you and your life.  They will find someone else to work with their son (maybe you could recommend someone?).  I always hate leaving a job but I think employers always understand unless you’re not giving them any sort of notice.  Good luck!

That’s really horrible of the mother to make you feel guilty. I was a nanny throughout college, so I know how it is to get attached to kids, but have to leave for one reason or another. I always had good relationships with the families I worked with, so I would just explain why I needed to leave (going abroad for a semester, need time for my thesis, etc.), and they all understood, and I stayed on until they could find someone to replace me. I can’t imagine that someone would cry and basically guilt-trip you into staying! I think the next time you go in, just be nice and firm about it. Say you’ve enjoyed working with him, but your schedule and upcoming wedding doesn’t allow  you to work a second job anymore. You can either offer to stay on and help them find someone to replace you or give them a date that you’re leaving. Good luck!
