One Day at a Time

You made a discovery this weekend.

Even though you are home with your three boys every single day, you are not doing great with the individual time.
Because you are always home now, you are constantly working on your list of tasks that you want to complete. You have both a mental and physical checklist for everything: chores, home school, meals, piano, walks, screen time, and others.

This weekend provided you time to spend time putting in a garden at the home of your husband’s parents’ house. Being out on your own home gave you the freedom to just be.

During this alone time you decided that once a week you need to make a point to take one of the boys somewhere outside of the house. All of the boys need the one on one time with you and the physical distance from the list of tasks to be completed.

As a start, today you spent a few hours with your youngest, doing whatever he wanted to do. And since you were not at home, you were actually able to embrace his interests without distractions.

Your youngest son wanted to bake cookies, play with a very old, but still functioning, race track, play a few other games, and read books. It was exactly what both of you needed! As a result of this first success, you have Mommy and Boy days planned for the next two weekends!

Are Your Problems Too Big for You to Handle?

If only the problems that you are experiencing during the pandemic were as simple as spending more one on one time with your children. The reality of today’s world, however, is often more complicated. From employers making workers come to a job without providing the necessary health and safety protections to the concern that you have about the air quality of an aging building that is already known for its poor air quality, in a time of record unemployment numbers in the spring of 2020 many workers are faced with nearly impossible decisions.

Being a worker, of course, is not the only time that people put themselves at risk. From the product liability that can threaten a consumer’s health to number of people who have fallen victim to high interest consumer credit schemes, there are many times when the problems you are facing are simply too big to handle. It is at these times when it may be in your best interest to get legal advice. And even in a time of social distancing, there are many people who are looking at the application of electronic case management to help answer their questions, and to settle their disputes.

In a time of crisis, of course, it should come as no surprise that problems like personal injury litigations will not go away. In fact, these are the times when an investment in attorney fees may help you get the in person or electronic case management help that you need. Consider some of these facts and figures about the many times when working with someone who can provide electronic case management or other kinds of legal services may be to your advantage:

  • More than 33% of all counties in the lower 48 states will face higher risks of water shortages by mid-century as a result of global warming. It is for these reasons that many people understand the need for water rights protection legislation.
  • As many of the nation’s factories are operating at reduced levels it may seem like there is progress on environmental issues. The fact of the matter is, however, before long the economy will shift in the direction that it needs to and these factories will be running at full scale again. The country could save approximately 5,000 lives per year and prevent thousands of cases of respiratory and heart disease by reducing toxic air pollution from industrial plants, and this is a concern that will never go away.
  • In addition to health concerns caused by outdoor pollution problems, however, there are also a number of indoor environmental issues as well. For example, more than 40% of Americans are worried about indoor and outdoor air quality, including everything from carbon emissions to tropospheric ozone, and from particulate matter, to radon.

Electronic case management is one of the ways legal teams are offering their help.
