Nats, you're no a bad mother. Bad mothers don't feel bad, the way you do, and they don't post messages like you did. Sorry to hear of the Bad Boss, though. Maybe it is worth discussing this with HR, as the refusal to give you a day off is unreasonable. And as ALso a Mom says, what about a day of your annual PAID compassionate leave ? And yes, check with the Dept of Labour here, and maybe ask them if they can contact him to confirm your rights.
