    Eek gad, no.
    This job doesn't pay enough to leech into my private time.

    If anyone would want to touch base, I'd tell them: I am available between the hours of 7:30-4:30, Monday through Friday. Feel free to reach out during that timeframe. If you need undivided attention, the best time to reach me is between 1-2:30 pm or you can send an email and I will be happy to review any concerns this way as well.

    Seriously… they want to schedule a conference? 🤦🏻‍♀️ That’s like having a meeting that could’ve been an email. LOL

    “Hi, Family! I’m far too busy with my own family this weekend to schedule a conference with you. I can tell you that your DCK is adapting very well and I don’t have any concerns this far. If you’d still like to schedule a conference, I’m free during nap time Tuesday at 1:30 after my lunch break. Thanks!”

    or that but “…I don’t schedule conferences outside of my normal business hours…” and insert what I put above.

    How to Say ‘No’

    New family wants to schedule a conference over the weekend to go over how dcb is adapting. We talk at pick up and drop off. Dck is adapting great actually. I’m exhausted. Im a full time student, a mom of 3 kids, and daycare. This weekend we have scouts tonight, scouts tomorrow (other kiddo), a birthday party, and a kids sports practice. Toss in about 10+ hours of homework. And I’ve love to sit down and talk to my DH… even if it’s 5 minutes, (which it won’t be, any phone conversation with them turns into 30+ Minutes), it’s MY family time.
    i have had a rough week with IEP meeting at school and random medical things with my medically compromised child, so I’m stretched out thin and all I want is to sleep in tomorrow and not talk to anyone lol

    how do I politely say that if they want to talk, they can schedule it during the 30 min break I get during the day (after my lunch)?
    I don’t want to set the precedent that they can request times when im off the clock for the future and although I think it’s sweet they want to check in, they’re asking for me to do MORE work when I already have 45 hours working directly with kids plus countless hours after it ends…
Working...
