Dear Teachers,

1. Don't be offended by their initial reaction, they will probably call you irresponsible and every other name under the sun. Give them time to come to terms with it.

- What do "under the sun" and "come to terms with it" mean here?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

In this case, search with
sun
then with
terms

They're both there.

"under the sun" means everything else that is similar to the first thing they've said. In this case, they've said "they will probably call you irresponsible", so, "every other name under the sun" means every other name that is similar to irresponsible. "under the sun" is usually added to stress the impact of something. So in this context it means "their intial reaction" is not going to be positive in any way.

"come to terms with" is more straightforward. It basically means to accept something after a short period of time. "Give them time to come to terms with it" basically means give them time to get used to it.
