I'm so tired. I think I need to quit and work a less demanding job. I have a 3 year old and an 11 month old. My husband works out of the house. I work during the day and most nights until 2am.

My maternity leave will be over by the end of July. When should I start reaching out to the team (coach, manager/directors etc)? Anyone returned from their maternity leave recently (after COVID) having trouble connecting or getting back on projects due to everyone working from home? Any advise would be much appreciated!!

I’m starting to feel so hopeless and depressed. My job (that I’m thankful to have) keeps me busy 14+ hours a day. I’ve basically abandoned my kids and it’s lord of the flies over here. I can’t keep up. I’m tired and there is no end in sight. I don’t really know what to do.

Has anyone ever felt discriminated on at work for having small children at home? Higher than usual expectations and no tolerance for any small mistakes?

I can’t close my eyes, when I do, I see that young black man on the grown with someone seating on his neck. I am raising a black kid and this keeps me up at night. I am so heartbroken.

Did anyone here have a kid before, during, or after an MBA? I’m in banking and am considering doing an MBA in 3 years when i’m 27. My biggest concern with that plan is that i’ll just be starting off a new post-MBA career in the age area where I would like to start a family (~29). I definitely know I want to have at least 1 kid before 30 but am conflicted if pursuing an MBA will upheave those plans or if I’ll have to choose between career ambition and family

My 8 year old took a 2-3 hour nap everyday day until the day he started kindergarten. We are on our fourth straight day of my 3 year old not napping. I fear that my beloved naptime is gone forever 😭
