Happy Mother’s Day! ❤️
My mother is sick with cancer and now in the hospital because of an infection that went septic. Does anyone have dua suggestions? Thank you in advance
Hi moms - I had posted earlier about nanny not active with toddler ( toddler bottles up and melts down a lot in the evening), let baby cry etc. I had the gut feeling that she is not the right fit for us and many moms here agreed. I am now trying to tell her that she isn’t the fit for us but this is my first time. Can you provide suggestions how to let go a nanny ? I plan to provide her severance for 2 weeks but I am not sure how to tell her - short and sweet
I just had a student come to me to explain she just came out to her mother and her mother took it horribly. She is talking about sending her away to boarding school. How should I go about addressing.
Combined outstanding student loans for me and spouse $$70k. Do you recommend pay down quickly a la Dave Ramsey, pay minimums and invest the rest, hold out hope for student loan forgiveness or something else? Additional context - own a home in suburbs (2.15% rate, 255k outstanding, and a few 0% loans for couch, computer, Home Depot, 1 child in daycare
I’m 11 wks pregnant and started this new project right as I got pregnant- it’s been such a tough project and I’m not able to keep up. I’m not sure what to do - I’ve totally fallen behind and am not sure how I’m going to be able to proceed. I need something slower paced. Do I tell them I’m pregnant or do I just keep trying to do my best. 😞
New dad here with a 10 week old. Wife is working extremely hard to take care of the baby and lately he's very fussy with her and but not me. He'll keep fussing, complaining and crying on her when he's tired and when she hands him to me he gets comfy and falls asleep in 10 mins. Its defeating for her and its killing me seeing how upset she is. She's amazing but she's getting it in her head that she's a bad mom. I'm hoping its just a phase... Anyone experience this? How long till your baby stopped favoring one parent do much? Any tips?
Has anyone tried EMDR to deal with childhood traumatic experiences? I'm not talking about things like physical abuse etc. but due to separation from parents at a young age which was driven by circumstances and decisions parents made. Due to this, I don't feel much connection with my parents. It has impacted my romantic relationships and causes constant anxiety at work because I feel like a helpless child inside, lack confidence and self worth and fear failure. Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
Interviewing w/ IBM Watson Health... Anyone have feedback on the firm / direction? Curious about brand new CEO...firm has acquired a lot in healthcare recently, but also had major layoffs last year
Anyone from Bain’s healthcare / pharmaceuticals practice willing to chat, or know someone who may? Wanted to know about projects you do and through which route I should come in as an experienced hire (generalist or specialist) thank you!!
Hope to learn more if you bought an apt in Manhattan, or if you decided against it (renting/moving to upstate/Long Island/Jersey). My husband and I are considering to have a baby soon and are thinking of buying and living in Manhattan for the next 10 years or so (looking at property under $2M). Please share what you considered as you were making the decision - I hate throwing away rent but also don’t want to trap ourselves in significant financial obligations. Thanks!
Well I'm a first time mom and feel home bound running the baby cycles. My baby is not a good sleeper so I feel like I am on 24/7. When he is a asleep in doing the usual bottles, dinner etc. I feel like I need more confidence to get myself and baby out of the house with everything in tow but I suppose walking through malls could help. Houston heat doesn't make it ideal to walk around outside during the day. I also do the night cycles solo so I'm pretty much too exhausted to do anything but want to get more scheduled about it so I can plan on an hour here and there when my husband gets home.
Anyone here work at Wayfair? What do you think of the child trafficking blow up happening right now? Search #wayfair hashtag on Twitter if you haven't heard. At this point, we only have Wayfair saying this is ridiculous, but obviously this can't be a coincidence...
Has anyone ever taken a short term leave of absence to deal with mental health issues relating to being overloaded and overwhelmed with work? I’m at my breaking point with no end in sight of things slowing down. If I tell the COO, will this affect my career at the firm by doing this? Is there another option?
Does anyone know what PwC's health benefits are like? I am onboarding and the packet just says it covers up to 75% of a gym membership or something like that. I'll be in the NYC office too if that affects anything
One week into kindergarten, already scheduling my first PCR for a sick kid. Buckle up, I guess?
One miscarriage, three failed IUIs, no explanation why. I am totally devastated. How do I give up on the dream to have a baby?
Accenture 🐠 what is the paternity leave policy? Having our second and leave looks like secondary gets 2 weeks but are we allowed to take primary once our wife goes back to work?
My boyfriend and I are planning to get engaged within a year or so. We’ve been together for 7 years now. Both our families are from a religious country. I have accepted that my boyfriend smokes and drinks alcohol but this is a huge red flag for my dad. I’m not sure how things will work out if I want to marry him and my father doesn’t approve because of this. My boyfriend wanted to hide it from my family but I’m not sure if it’s a good idea… He’s planning to meet my father this (cont)
Can anyone recommend a running app? I haven’t ran since pre-COVID since gyms have been closed. I’m desperate to start running again

Moms out there wfh with a nanny that have an infant any suggestions for them to keep entertained? Mine is 10 months and I need some ideas for sensory play or just new fun activities for them
Wrapping up maternity leave and negotiating start and end times with the nanny. What time do your nannies come over and how late do they stay? Both husband and I are consultants and our hours are so unpredictable. Nanny can come 8 hours a day. We are thinking 9-5 and then based on our day, one of us takes care of the baby for another two hours and do the bath/bed time around 7ish.
What's the salary band at Manager level in the corporate restructuring group? I am being interviewed at manager level, final interview on Tuesday. Current CTC 31 (all fixed) expecting 40L pa fixed?
Anyone have any idea on comp at Bank of America in markets roles? Analyst levels upwards. TIA
I’ve been hanging with a coworker and their significant other a lot lately and I’m starting to get a crush on my coworker’s partner...and I think it might be mutual bc there’s a slight sensual tension whenever it’s just the two of us talking I left out gender on purpose just in case my coworker is on here lmao
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
For those with an HSA, what docs do you keep for your current medical expenses so that you can cash them out later? Is it the receipt? Is it the bill? What is the best way to store those to keep them organized so you have them in the future?
I’m in a small, close knit bar. I love my firm (not biglaw) and the people I work with but I really, truly hate billing hours. I am interviewing with a boutique firm that does not track billables and has a great rep for work/life balance. I’m excited at the prospect of more $ for less time, but will also feel guilty to leave my firm after they spent significant resources over the past few years “raising” me, only to lose me. Tell me I’m being silly and that this won’t burn bridges.
Is it possible FAANG will undergo massive changes due to regulation in the next couple of years? Recruiter reached out for Facebook but I'm not sure
(MEN’S INPUT APPRECIATED) Did you have an anniversary or holiday that you S/O knocked out of the park? Maybe they planned an unforgettable date, or they found the perfect gift... What was your most memorable celebration? What do you get someone who has everything they could want? Looking for ideas, esp. during Covid! On top of that, our anniversary is a weeknight, so unfortunately no travel.
Little sister is starting her internship soon. Will be making some decent money. What financial advise can I share with her? Should she open an IRA account or any other account? Will have about $20k-$25k in student loans when she graduates college. Very minimal savings so far
My dad was talking to my long term bf about setting life goals, and told him a story about a family friend whose wife had a large corporate job and her husband “was the stay at home mom” (said in a way that was clearly meant to be a dig at the husbands masculinity). My mom stayed home to raise me & my siblings, which ALLOWED my dad to work long hours/be successful. Anyone else face comments like this re: being female breadwinner/husband caring for children more than society expects?
Told CRO I wanted to break in a 1st year assoc and analyst on this deal. They have performed so, so bigly. Feel like a proud father. #HappyVP
When your team is so sick of eating at fancy restaurants that you have team dinners at Chipotle. Closest thing to home food when on the road
