For those of you with immediate family members who are at high risk, how are you doing? I find myself being very anxious and stressed about my father getting sick.

Same. I’m super anxious about my parents; both in their 60s and have underlying health conditions.

I have two elderly parents with a slew of pre-existing health problems who I am terrified of getting sick. I live with them and so I am trying my hardest not to expose myself. For now I work from home. Anything they need to leave the house for I try to do it myself or order for them and I make contact with the delivery person. So far we are all fine so all we can do now is hope other people are being as diligent and proactive.

I've initiated handwashing immediately upon entering as well as everyone changing their clothes. I'm so scared of the family bringing it home to him because I'm not sure he'd make it

I’ve quarantined myself from my parents. No way am I risking me being a carrier and giving it to them.

And thank you for your kind words.

My dad is in a high risk category so if he gets it would be one that would likely die. It worries me. My consolation is that he is in Indiana and there aren’t any cases in his area yet. He doesn’t get out much anyway so I am hoping his natural introvert tendencies will protect him. My mom isn’t as much of a high risk and she does all the shopping for them. I just hope neither of them get it.

My dad is very extroverted and I heard from my mom he was still out and about like nothing is going on. I called him yesterday and told him that he was making me VERY NERVOUS and FREAKING me out!!! He is elderly and awaiting heart surgery. He said people are over-reacting and I said that may be true for young, healthy people but it’s very dangerous for people his age. I tried to talk some sense into him but I don’t know if he will listen. He has me so worried.

I’ve been asked to weigh in on how to improve my firms parental leave policy.

I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!

I am in a single income family with a small army of children.

Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become?

My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.
