Today it seems like getting to the top requires so much media savvy and money that anyone who gets close has already revealed themselves to be morally bankrupt and willing to sell out every principle.

She knows that we are not going upstate for holidays anymore since my daughter's divorce. I told her no and that we had planned to do something for the grandkids, but that I UNDERSTOOD that they would want the day as a family. I ignored her dig that they do not celebrate the holiday. I later texted if she could bring the kids to my house this weekend and she hasn't returned the text. What can I do? I have done everything at this point. 47 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Your DS must decide that it is important for you to have a close relationship with your grandchildren. You said you are not close with your step-son. If he doesn't care about you having a relationship with his kids, you can surely bet that his wife won't care. Step back and only deal with your DS.

The doctor was practically detrimental to us, but those nurses…I've never admired anyone more. Sheer nobility and grace.

I agree, nurses make all the difference. I had bc, bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. The nurses who cared for me in recovery and afterward (4 nights in hosp. I think) were the best. Made sure I was comfortable, helped in any way they could. Only had one bad nurse the first day. When I look up hospitals, I look up the nurses satisfaction (I can't remember what it's called). If the nurses are paid well an treated well by the hospital, it carries over to the pts.) Thank you for the work you do. You have no idea what a difference it makes. [ Reply | More ]

I have two friends who teach in regular public schools, and both feel more intimidated than protected by the union. One forgot her purse and was so scared of getting "busted" going back in after school hours to get it (when the union reps might think she was illegally doing unpaid work) that she had to sneak in like a thief. Other works at an inner-city hs and was told by her union she is no longer allowed to give extra help after school since it's unpaid and they were in contract negotiations. These are kids who don't necessarily even have parents or adequate food at home. [ Reply | More ]

PP Just posted about SIL above. She's at a regular public school and says all they care about is test scores. As a school serving low-income kids (and with teachers forbidden to teach extra hours or even offer extra help) they are constantly on the verge of getting taken over by the Feds. Admin pushes non-stop test prep to save their jobs. She does not feel kids are actually learning anything. In contrast, the friends I have at charters feel good about what they're doing. It either works or they switch to something that does. [ Reply | More ]

When I started working at an independent school, they gave all the new teachers a book called Understanding Independent School Parents: A Teacher's Guide to Successful Family-School Relationships by Michael Thompson and Alison Mazzola. It's a quick read and I think it was helpful. The basic premise (and I've found it to be true) is that 95% of parents won't be like the ones you describe, and for those 5% who are, you should refer them to administration. Of course, this assumes a supportive administration. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

Me too. I wish my dc would eat pizza! (And no, this is not some kind of f-ed up VBA about how my dc doesn't like something as unhealth as pizza!) It's annoying as f*ck; it'd make things so much easier if he would eat it. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm so burned out and depressed. DH and I have worked out asses off for years...we are still scraping by. Yes, we are moving, and yes, we are both doing a little better...but I'm so angry that I'm almost 40 and feel like I have nothing. It's looking like I will have to continue to work full-time until I die, and I was really hoping to start working less as well. I can't do it all with the kids and the house and the meals...it feels so unfair. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We just downsized to one house and we weren't even in a place of being 'scraping by' - you make choices. Pull yourself up - be honest about your finances - goals - and savings. Make a plan. Stick to it. Leave 10% for error. Like - if you think you spend 600 on food monthly - budget 660.. Don't get all upset about your current situation or feel bad about past choices - just change and celebrate every win on the way to a better place. You need to fund emergency savings, then retirement, then college, then gratuitous fun. (unless you don't want to pay for college for your kids- personal choice). [ Reply | More ]
