Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??

You’re not being unreasonable. You’re being a reasonable parent to a new baby. My friend dealt with the exact same thing and it was touch and go for awhile, but her father ultimately got vaccinated. Good luck!

Ask them to quarantine and wear a mask? And maybe meet outside?

You're not being unreasonable at all! I don't want unvaccinated people near once my baby's born (having said that, most people including my family are vaccinated so it's not really an issue for me). It sounds like a tough situation that you're in - sorry that you have to deal with that

My grandparents were vaccinated 2 months ago and both were hospitalized last week with covid. Have your dad come over, smoke a cig and take a shot with him. I wouldn't get caught up in worrying about the what ifs and losing time with loved ones.

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?

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?

My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)

NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy?

My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
