DD is a key worker. ie she has to remain at school, including the hols, to ‘care’ for other key worker’s kids. Only 7 so far but parents are trying it on & the school is having to be firm & getting abuse in return. In turn, as I can’t care for them being in isolation, her 2 boys are in their school 2 days per week being cared for by yet another key worker.....and so it goes on. .... (there must be some way small schools can amalgamate & share the load?). SiL has put his staff on reduced days and has to go into work for those 2 days to keep the business afloat in the absence of laid off staff, so they have a job to return to eventually. He will be the carer on the other days at home while trying to work at the same time. Some folk just don’t get it : one affluent Mum in tears apparently, because she just doesn't want to have her children at home f/t. Can’t cope. wtf ?
younger relatives don't do conversation
This is what failure looks like
