How do I address an issue with a parent?

I'm a nanny, and the family that I work on insists that I shower their eight year old, very smart daughter. Originally I was hired only to take care of their newborn twins and was told that their older daughter was completely independent. Now they have rearranged their daily schedule so that they don't have to bathe her anymore and I do instead. I think eight is a little old to not know how to shower herself, and I think it's unfair that they added things to my job description, and they expect me to do all my regular things and take care of three month old twins on top of supervising and bathing their more than capable daughter. How to I politely approach the situation with my employers?

I would tell them that you would like to have a talk and then kindly tell them that the 8year old is old enough to shower herself and that it wasnt agreed that you have to do it and that you dont want to do it any more..and hopefully they will understand and rearange things.good luck

it is a very strait forwrd situation, either way is very polite and you have the full right to tell them directly that this is not in the intil agreement. and you donot wish to continue bathing the eight years old.
