Hi moms - I am in a dilemma. My 4 year old is the only one who wears a mask in her class. Part of me wants to take off her mask too but we have a newborn at home so I want to take all the precautions.

We started putting a mask on our 4 YO after several COVID outbreaks at her daycare. Was she the only one wearing a mask some days? Yep. Did she care? Nope. She loves her Frozen mask and I go to sleep at night knowing I’m doing my best to keep her safe.


I have to be honest. I caved and am not having my kids wear masks at school even though in my heart I feel like all the kids should. As soon as the school board removed the requirement there are no kids wearing them at school so I didn’t feel like it would do any good if they were the only ones. I feel like for masks to make a difference everyone needs to wear them.


I’m grateful that both our daycare and school require masks because I’m due any day now with no. 3. My 5 year wears hers to kindergarten and aftercare and my almost 3 year old wears hers to daycare, and all the other kids do, too. Are they perfect about it? Doubtful, but they try.


My kids are older (3rd grade&6th grade) but not yet old enough for vaccines. They wear masks all day, even during PE and recess. The only time masks come off is when they drink water or eat lunch. They each had classmates who tested positive but so far they have been OK and I think it is largely thanks to the masks. At least until this virus is under control or until they get vaccinated, the masks will be kept on.


My 3yo is the only one in her class of 18 that wears a mask. She likes it bc it makes her feel like one of the teachers (they are required to wear masks), and I got her masks with all the characters she loves. She never complains about wearing it, and reminds me to put it on her every morning.


Do you send your kids to school in mask? Just wanted to know what other moms are doing.

I don’t because I know it’s not being worn properly/consistently anyways at that age. It’s scary though

Aren't we wearing masks to protect others, not ourselves? Or is this no longer true?

Dear Men, If you have a pregnant coworker on your team, please do not book hour long meetings during lunch time and then also proceed to run over. We are starving to death and can't help it. Not to mention we probably need to pee. Please be mindful of your pregnant coworkers. Thanks!

Beyond test scores, how did you determine your strong application attributes? For instance, how do you know if your work experience, community involvement, etc. is considered “above average” or “unique”?


Also look into your firm's policy about covering the cost of therapy- the first 5 sessions were covered. I'm not sure if it's the job or me now though


Has anyone here applied for a closed work permit in the last few weeks /months from the US? It’s been 10 weeks since my submission and avg processing time on the IRCC website is 5 weeks. According to my lawyer it’s just normal processing delay. Is this true across the board?
