[ - ] I am a psychologist workign in a gritty government setting (juvenile hall) and share a small office space with two other mental health workers. We cuoldn't be more different personality- and style-wise: I am sort of loosey-goosey outgoing and they are both more reserved at tight. I am not a complainer and when you work in a tough, institutional setting, there aren't a lot of nice trappings. we bring our own bottled water, pens, tissues, supplies. There is no elevator, no privacy, etc. My two office mates are not exactly my "cup of tea" personally (I am older, have a family, don't watch reality TV) and they are the types that complain a lot, to the extent of filing "grievances" if they are asked to do things beyond their job description. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: Both of them do have health issues that are such that they are used to being deferred to. Anyway, they both claim that they don't feel well when the air conditioner is turned on (we have a wall unit for the shared space). It is 100 degrees (I am in LA) and, frankly, desk fans blowing hot air from a concrete hallway is a horrible way to spend the day, giving me headaches. I have tried to good-naturedly work out something along the lines of let's just cool off the room and put fans on after that. But every time I put on the AC (like in the am when it is already 80 degrees), they go into an adjoining office space, close the door, and start talking (apparently about me and my demands, another coworker overheard. lol). I'm not sure how to handle this because it is very 7th grade and, truthfully, feels more like a power play than anything else. I have never "talked to a supervisor" before about an issue like this (ugh, so petty!) and my supervisor is actually off site. But not sure how to handle it. I cannot work in 100 degree heat and, truthfully, am starting to get resentful that my very basic needs are being trampled on... [ Reply | More ]

I know a couple where the dh has had a long term mistress (actually an ex-gf he knew before the wife) and he has a child with the mistress who is the same age as his youngest child with his DW. Everyone acts like it is a child from a previous relationship. He pays child support and has visitation and takes the child to his and his dw's home every other weekend and DW takes care of all the kids together. Pretty sure he is still sleeping with the mistress as well but DW looks the other way. I doubt they'll ever divorce or that things will ever change. [ Reply | More ]

A preschool teacher once said lets both agree to believe about half of what they say about one another. I have a 4 yo and 3 6 yo's, and in this situation, I'm not sure that you are getting sufficiently reliable reporting to allow yourself to get upset about this. That said, I see the larger issue being the disconnect on dietary issues. Sitter/Nanny should be able to prepare a balanced meal. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm paranoid how my DS is going to do in K this year. He is not stupid (got 99 on G&T) but completely uninterested in reading/writing. He is also very active and outgoing boy who likes to have silly fun and can sometimes be completely overboard. In addition, he is bilingual and English is not that strong yet as his other language. I grew up in the other country where school starts at 7, not 5, and not sure what to expect. I also hear all the stories about "behavioral" issues boys are having in schools and how administration is often pushes the parents to have evaluations and take measures up to giving boys drugs to calm them down. I'm very scared. What would you say? Any recommendations? 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Well he is going into k which means he probably can't read yet so maybe that is why. Do you read to him? [ Reply | More ]

I'm reading him, yes. But he does not exhibit any interest in learning to read or to write. He knows alphabet and can write his name but makes "eyes" when I try to show him some short words which he can learn by sight. what bothers me is the luck of any interest. I am not blaming him though - all kids are different and he might get his "spark" later but we need to comply with school requirements. [ Reply | More ]

I'm not pressuring him and I'm fine if he would start reading at 7. But I'm dreading the school. He would need to behave and show the progress in reading and read to the certain level by end of K. I don't see any interest right now (and he is early birthday - January, so he is 5,5). [ Reply | More ]

Yes, he is going to be one of the oldest but I have friends with daughters who are same year but younger, and girls are very academic. Few boys that I know have various degree in terms interest in reading/writing but definitely milder in the temper which is a big plus. [ Reply | More ]

To be honest, I do not know what to expect - I never attended public school in USA. DS is going to a good zoned school but with 25 kids in class and one teacher can I ask for much? Again, from what I understand there're levels of reading, etc. that he has to achieve by the end of K. And provided that he is not interested in academic learning, bilingual, active, all makes me thing that we are probably not going to have "easy" road. [ Reply | More ]

I really don't understand what you are scared about? Public schools do not throw students out and they can't force kids to take drugs. It's usually the parents who want to give their kids drug, not the schools. [ Reply | More ]
