Public Accountants with Children

A place for parents to share ideas, challenges, & concerns. Anything that has to do with our kids during and after work.

The toughest part of my day is leaving my baby in someone else's care when he is sick. Balance it's such a unicorn. I am considering a LOA just to spend more time with my baby. I feel so guilty.

A female CPA brings in a $25K client, but the male partner asks it be managed by a male colleague instead. No specialty, simply re-assigned to someone else. How would you have reacted immediately?

I finally understand that guy in The Office who wouldn’t shut up about going to the Finger Lakes- If I don’t give constant reminders that I’m taking paternity leave, everyone forgets. Lol

I have a whole life insurance policy for my young kids. Feel like I’m getting fee’d to death. Anyone have thoughts on this? Is it better to just invest in stocks and take my lumps with the market?
