I got an email last night from a 7th-grade parent because her son said I mentioned the words "male privilege" in class, and she is very concerned about how that is related to ELA (she said "reading"), and she is concerned about this being taught in public schools. To be clear, I didn't do a lesson on this subject but we did discuss rights versus privileges. I've had multiple parents contact the school/get upset with me because of things like his. It's exhausting... Thoughts?
Welcome! This group is all things 4th grade! We can discuss lesson issues, lesson help and suggestions, as well as any other subjects that will help keep us 4th grade teachers sane.

How do you navigate the holidays, with or without kids? I tend to be pretty busy over the next 3-4 months and I always try to make as much time for family as I can, but it seems like it's never enough. My mother in law is pretty old fashioned and I can tell she thinks it's wrong that some nights I'm home late during the holiday season or when I work in downtimes during family holidays. My partner is incredibly supportive but I still feel some guilt over it.

Recommendations for a gynecologist in the fairfax/ Oakton area? Specific doctor/ practice recs that you have been going to would be awesome. My husband and I are starting to plan a baby and I expect my journey to be long drawn out and difficult. Im really hoping to find a supportive gynecologist.

Looking for dating advice. I got out of a long term relationship a few months ago and started dating again a bit too soon. During that time, I went on a date with a guy who seemed great but I just wasn’t ready for anything. We ended up becoming friends. We’ve hooked up twice now and I want to date him but I’m not sure what his interest is at this point. I know I need to ask him. I’m wondering if it’s significant that for the most part I initiate things? I’m trying to gauge his interest level.

It was late, we were watching TV at my GF's place. I was planning to stay there for the night because I was tired. But she asked me to go back to my place (it's not far, 10 min drive) because she wanted to get good sleep and I'd probably snore.
