Hello, I've just been offered a job in a small village near to the town I live in as an NQT. I have just moved back in with my parents after university in another part of the country. However while I'm thrilled about the job I am starting to freak out about the problems of keeping my professional and personal lives separate. my parents have lived here for years and they have a massive social circle in the town that is quite an influential group of people. During ITT i kept my personal life completely separate by telling few people exactly where I worked (I tried to be as vague as was polite except with really close friends) and never shared specifics about the job. However I am now really worried that my parents have told everyone in their social circle that I have got my first job - and exactly where I got it. I an worried that now they know where I work it will only take a few stupid words spoken my my parents in the wrong ear and it could get back to the school through a network of people. i'm aware that it would be solved if I told them nothing....but it is hard to live with people and say absolutely nothing, even vague things. I tried to talk to them about it but they think I'm overreacting and that 'its going to happen eventually' and 'they don't see the problem'. Am I overreacting or should I push them further to ensure they don't discuss me with their friends? Any advice would be massively appreciated!
