We had to split up kids from one class across other classes yesterday as their teacher was out and couldn't get a reliever, and had to do it for two classes today. I'm hearing this was the same across a lot of schools will only increase from this point on, was starting to force the government's hand.

Question: We have a blended family, with shared care between parents (myself and my ex, my partner and her ex).. we have decided to stay home from now on, kids school stuff is all sorted for online learning/lectures etc... Suggestions on how to approach this in terms of care arrangements? Is it wrong to "cancel" them for a while and resort to measures like phone calls/face time?

My daughter is with her mum during the week and with us on weekends.
My partners daughters are the opposite - with us during the week, with dad on weekends.

Should probably stay how it is at the moment I would have thought. Your daughter stays with mum and your partner's kids stay with you guys until it all sorts itself out. That's just my opinion though of course.
So you've seen everything have you?
Yep
Have you ever seen a man eat his own head?
No
Well you haven't seen everything then have you.

Why?
If the kids are going to school anyway I don’t think it matters if they change between families.

Yeah it's just my opinion lol. What if one of the parents gets it though? I would have got shot down if I said swap em over etc and then I would have been called irresponsible. I suggest the sensible approach and still get questioned. Man, I can't win :lol:

Thanks to JK for posting this article on FB, a good read:

https://www.theage.com.au/national/nobel-prize-winner-says-virus-curve-will-flatten-in-couple-of-weeks-20200324-p54dib.html?fbclid=IwAR2Ojlssei8mCcSEHLEUsc-TH3Pg9nhiJpGnpSf2iMcaW9tHG6RuKKu7K6c

I particularly like this part:

Other urgent clinical work is needed, not just a vaccine, he says. For example, "we need a rapid antibody test for people who've had the virus and recovered".

Why? Because such people, who may not have shown any symptoms and not know that they've had the virus, "are perfectly okay to go out and work and live and do anything - they won't spread the disease".

Some 20-30 per cent of the population probably will fall into this category eventually. They could constitute an speedily available workforce and alleviate the economic problem.


Hopefully we can begin the economic recovery sooner than is being suggested.

Because going from home to school is exposing you to two environments.

Going from home to school to another home is exposing yourself to 3 environments and exposing the two homes to each other.

Our kids wont be going to school moving forward.
It's certainly a tough one, I don't want to impact the kids/other parents but at the same time don't want to create a greater risk in my household.

If I had confidence the other parents were following tight measures i'd feel more comfortable, but they're a bit cowboy about the whole thing - step-daughters dad thinks it's all a hoax and my daughters mum is more concerned with her social life and money.

I have just delivered a lecture to an empty theatre. That was surreal.

The whole thing was recorded (voice and computer screen) for the students to watch offline.

Next week I might do it naked. No-one's gonna know....

Understand some won't agree.

Just found I cant claim any Centrelink money for being dropped down to 0.6 until I have used all my Annual Leave and Long Service Leave first.

That sucks. There pretty much goes our holiday once this crisis is over.

Personally feel permenant employees have been a tad screwed over during this period.
