Is it fair for divorced parents to take up two parent/teacher conference slots? I don’t think it is. I would love to hear your thoughts about this and how it os handled at different schools.

One child, one conference. For 20-30 minutes they can sit in same room and listen to exact same info. Then you know it’s not getting misinterpreted. What if everyone who was divorced asked for this? Be professional and kind, but I would not do this. Exception would be if there was a restraining order between them.

As a divorced parent, I say yes, definitely fair. As a teacher, I say yes, definitely fair. If they are asking for separate conferences it is because it is best for them not to be in the same place at the same time. This is good for everyone's mental health and will keep the conference moving along rather than stopping for disagreements.

I agree

Yes, definitely fair

I do not schedule separate conferences because both parents need to work together toward meeting their child’s goals and academic needs. Parents are going to be connected for the rest of their lives because they have a child together. I really have not seen this ad a problem in my district.

Yes.

I had two divorced parents get into a verbal argument at our before school conferences. I will definetly put up with having separate conferences rather than dealing with that hot mess.

Typically, I like them to hear the same thing and would prefer not to take two slots but now I am reconsidering.

I found out that I was pregnant (unplanned) last week and it has absolutely shredded my relationship. I left the home my bf and I share, and I came to stay with my family. Part of the reason it got so bad is because he vehemently wants me to get an abortion, and I don’t know if I can do it. There wasn’t even a discussion of keeping it. He told me in no uncertain terms that he would resent me forever. I need help. Can anyone recommend a virtual counselor for us? Does anyone have any advice?

Birth plans: how detailed was yours? I haven’t written mine (yet), but I really don’t feel that picky about it. Is that weird? I’m hoping to go in, use the lessons from my coordinated pushing workshop, and at some point get an epidural. I am hoping for a natural birth but if baby is in distress or something goes wrong, I’m open to a c-section (I was a c-section baby and the most important thing to me is that baby is born healthy). Am I missing something? How specific was your birth plan?

My partner and I had an unplanned pregnancy a couple years ago. I was always very pro-choice, but when it came to me, I couldn’t go through with abortion.

He told me last night that he doesn’t know if he can be intimate with me again, bc I broke his trust by keeping the baby, and if it were to happen again, he wouldn’t survive.
