When I schedule meetings, I usually offer my colleagues/students two alternatives: to schedule a slot during working hours, which may result in tiny people disrupting our conversation, or else to chat one evening when they are in bed and my full attention can be given. I find giving these options gives me less anxiety in the event that they do opt for a 10 am slot and I have a child on my lap bashing at the keyboard…
