Has anyone traveling to Canada recently? I am planning to go for four days and part of the documentation is to use the ArriveCAN app which has you complete a questionnaire. One of the questions on there is whether or not you have a suitable quarantine plan, in the event that border control requires you too. I guess I would just extend my stay at the hotel if required, does anyone know if that's an acceptable answer if asked by border control?

While visiting family in another country (with significant time difference), is it better to stay in a hotel the first few days for the toddler to acclimatize with timezone shift or move straight to live with family? I feel I will have more flexibility while living in a hotel with meals, fussy toddler, not always be open to family intervention etc. We plan to visit family during the day but come back early evening or so in our hotel which will be 15 mins away. Husband doesn’t agree cont

I want to acknowledge as a dad of 2, we just lost our third at 12 weeks due to a missed miscarriage. We were devastated, not only by the loss but by the week long process that followed. Yet - miscarriages are not seen as a bereavement and often minimised by the well intentioned with shallow words of encouragement. We need to talk about this more.... right?
I left my apartment early and agreed to split utilities. Utilities split amongst the 3 of us came out to 140 each(water, WiFi, electricity). In this last month the electricity bill alone was 492. Is it right of me to not want to split that.
I’m tracking down an article that’s been on my mind but I can’t find it for the life of me. It’s about domestic expectations of men and women, and how often men will express eagerness for domestic and work equality, but stop short of actually doing more domestic work. Domestic things still need to get done, and women fill that gap. It’s a lot of small things, but when you zoom out the collective impact shows massive impact. Death by 1000 paper cuts.

Advice on how to correct employee without hurting their feelings? Emp is making constant and repetitive errors. I am not cruel, not yelling, not name calling, nothing like that, but I am short and to the point, no fluff. “Why did/didn’t you do this?”, “This needs to be fixed now”. I expect things to be done right and on time without me having to constantly double check or monitor them. Employee is complaining that I’m hurting their feelings. How do you handle when an employee screws up? Advice?
