I work at a preschool that redirects disruptive students by giving them a book to calm down and regroup. Do you think this is a good practice or does it ultimately lead the student to see reading as punishment?
I'm an account manager, but want to get better at helping and managing my team. So, I've started doing some of the copywriting myself so I can get a better feel for what's involved, what's needed, and how I can help others improve.

What are your favorite books and sources to become better at copywriting?

Looking for some advice. I’m in very early pregnancy, and thus only my husband and I know. My firm is doing a conference with approximately 50-100 people for two days this month, so I still won’t be telling anyone as I’ll only be about 9 weeks. I’m currently vaccinated, and the conference is requiring anyone unvaccinated to take a PCR test prior to arrival and wear a mask the entire time, but I’m extremely anxious to go given the increased risk of Covid and pregnancy. Should I go?
