I really enjoyed reading the history of the firm and appreciated the somewhat subjective way that the author portrayed some of our major decisions. But, he ended a book with a message that the firm has lost a ton of luster, internally and externally, so I wanted to get people's thoughts there.

Looking for everyone's opinion. How often is reasonable to respond to a parent when they are emailing multiple times a day? I have a special ed colleague that has a parent emailing multiple times a day asking a dozen or more questions daily. Most of the questions are not simply information seeking; they are critical, confrontational, or questioning why the IEP is written as it is. How often should this colleague respond?

I’ve always been raised that if a guy makes a sexual joke/references it to me early on, he doesn’t respect me and just wants to get in my pants (so avoid at all costs). 24 years old now & really struggling to let myself escalate things to the next level. Everything feels platonic and deep down I go on dates with people I’m not attracted to because it feels “safe”, but it ends quickly because I don’t feel anything and it’s a waste of time. Can anyone relate to this trauma?
