I think something like a homemade card would be sufficient. They've probably just culled all of their belongings for the move--I don't think giving her anything that they'll need to pack makes sense.

So glad for you! What the heck was the doctor thinking in not explaining it earlier? Do they nor realize how scary these opaque communications are?

When my DD was younger I got a call saying that...

I'm not the poster who made that comment, but I agree with it. His date said the motivation was for it to be a "showstopping entrance." In other words, to show off to their classmates. I interpret...

I hate how things are done not for the experience but for the attention it will bring (and for the pics to post on social media.) In the article, the parents and the boy said they wanted to make a...

I know it is tough for them and frustrating for the adult to have to give constant reminders. IMO it's not cruel because it is for their own and their families' and teachers' safety.

Why is it cruel? They learned to wear shoes to keep their feet safe, right? And they wear jackets when it's cold to protect them from the weather. Seat belts and helmets are also more uncomfortable...

I agree with everyone. The neighbor is greedy and just awful. Don't communicate with the neighbor at all. Make it all go through your lawyer. I honestly don't think this case will get far. You...

I would guess some of it gets saved and used again (milk, prepackaged food) and some gets thrown out.

We are in person and lunch gets delivered to our rooms. They drop off all of the food and the...

Did you have Covid previously? My friend did, and had a strong reaction to the first shot. Her reaction was like the reaction you hear about from the second shot. That makes sense, I guess. Whatever...

I just want to add, it's not just that you don't want to make another student start late. It's also that she's paying for you to be available at 4:00. Even if she's late, those 10 minutes are...

Fewer people wearing green for St Patrick's Day?

It seems like just a few years ago the majority of people I'd see on St Patrick's Day would be wearing green. (This is not a particularly Irish area.) The last few years it seems like fewer and fewer...

Yes, it is too much. I teach in a high school with semester block scheduling. That means that students have 4 classes every day for one semester, then 4 different classes in 2nd semester. Teachers...

Please don't surrender her. Unfortunately, dogs can get into fights. It is awful that your neighbor got hurt, but you're doing the right thing in offering to pay bills. It was a bad situation but it...

What should a parent do with old IEPs?

Hi sped teachers. My son has an IEP. He's had it about 5 years, so I have his initial IEP with all of the testing results, and a recent re-eval. I also have all of his annual IEPs.

I'm trying to...

I know you said you're not looking for meds, but I'm going to be that annoying person who doesn't listen. An alternative to Xanax is hydroxizine. It's not habit forming and can be taken as needed.

I live in the south. "Ma'am" and "sir" are still appreciated and to some extent expected here. I don't teach the use, but most of my students already use it to some degree because they've been taught...

Wow, do I object to this statement. This year I finally asked for help with my anxiety and started taking meds. It has been amazing what life is like without abnormal levels of anxiety.
