I lost my job and have a one year old. I love taking care of the baby and my whole day goes in that!! It really does. I have not been able to think about other job options but I really want to apply and find a job. What do I do? Due to corona we are skeptic bout day cares too. I do not want to lose my skill set, been in consulting for 12 yrs. And at the same time love the time that I spend with my baby. What is the right thing to do? I really need to get a fresh perspective and some inspiration.
Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛

Hi Baby Lawyer here, I recently got a job in-house and feel like I know nothing and was wondering if anyone had any books/resources/ advice on how to get more knowledge. I don’t want to do a bad job, and they were specifically looking for someone with little experience so they can train them but feel like I don’t know enough to be helpful.
Question for immigrating generation parents or people with traditionally conservative mindsets raising daughters in this country. How have you reconciled your traditional mindset and perhaps ideas on conservative dressing, piercings, ink etc with a daughter who is increasingly interested in it and headed into her teens. I do think body positivity is important but I'm also stuck maybe a generation behind where it comes to looking professional. What was your approach? (im the father if it matters)

Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
