Haven’t done it in covid times so can’t comment on that, but I did it with my toddler and tried to schedule flights when I knew there would be map or some sleep time and tried to keep awake ahead of the flight. Also a couple books, tegu magnetic blocks, play doh, tons of snacks and milk, and always fall back on Kindle or iPad for movie or tv. When potty training one of ours we also traveled with a portable potty seat.

Hey fellow moms, curious to know about any exceptionally good or bad policies from companies to help parents navigate covid, parenting and work. My boss asked me for how we could better support parents as winter approaches and younger kids still can’t get vaccinated. Have any of your companies handled things like quarantining with young kids while still working well?

I’ve been thinking I need to break up with my boyfriend. We’ve just grown apart and I think it’s time for us to go our separate ways. How bad is it that because of covid I’ve been pushing off the conversation with him because I know dating is really hard right now and I don’t want to deal with not being able to date after. How bad is it for me to be thinking this... can anyone else relate? I just feel like I want to be with someone and if I break up with him I won’t have anyone cause of covid

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
