At what age did you start your kids in daycare? I started mine at 19 months, 2 weeks back but doubting my decision. They allow 30 mins for lunch and that’s definitely not enough time for her to finish her meal considering she just learnt how to eat.

Whoa - that’s not good. Definitely an issue with that daycare and not daycare in general. My daughter doesn’t always finish her lunch (or breakfast or dinner at home...), but she has snacks and they give her extra snacks that we provide so she’s not hungry.


Daycare is a big transition especially if they haven’t been there as a baby and it’s totally new. My kids have been in great daycares and I don’t remember how long they allocated for lunch but managing multiple toddlers for prep, meal time, and clean up is still a balancing act. They weren’t setting a timer, but there was definitely a routine and a flow to the daily schedule to ensure they got play, rest, activities, nutrition etc. I don’t think 30 mins is necessarily the issue. If it’s barely touched that means she is spending 30 mins not eating, I can understand why they’d move on. My kids go through phases where they eat less at lunch and it’s because they’re socializing and run out of time (and did this as toddlers too). My son never finished his lunch one year and then the next year I packed small lunches and the teacher asked me to pack more because he was getting hungrier. Agree with the above recommendations to offer snacks, maybe ask for an extra 5 mins for her to sit before or after everyone else, but also keep in mind it takes a few weeks to adjust to daycare. Obviously listen to your gut if you feel like something is seriously wrong, but if you talk to them and have visited, and feel like they do take care and have your child’s best interest in mind, then maybe give it time and offer extra breakfast and dinner.


You need a better daycare. Imagine setting a timer in kids eating.

Yea, either speak to daycare about more help for her to eat her food/ more time/ extra snacks to make up for food not eaten or find another daycare. I can’t imagine putting a timer on my 2.5year old to eat. Some days it takes us an hour easy. Also, she started daycare 2 months ago at 2.3 and it took us about 3-4 weeks for her to eat well at daycare. It’s a new environment so sometimes they just won’t eat. I think the first step is to speak to daycare and come up with a plan

This is an issue specific to your daycare. My kid is a grazer and eats literally all day (every daycare pic of her week get has a yougurt, or cheese, or toast or something in it). Daycare is helping us transition her to eating more full meals but they aren’t doing it by starving her, that’s absurd.

Deloitte Worst Interview Experience. 1. Interviewer late by 45 mins, and unapologetic about it. 2. HRs took a week’s time to arrange my interview, just to know it’s a case of profile mismatch. 3. They just picked a keyword from my profile and didn’t even bother to have a look at exact profile. After all this they still have the audacity to tell that we don’t compare ourselves with others due to our brand value. Time to reconsider your mythical facts. What’s your views fishes ?


Anyone here doing consulting in Spain? I’m interested in knowing more about the market there and potentially make a move. Manager at big 4 in Toronto, 10 yrs of experience. Do public sector work.


Right now I'm interning at a shop that I do enjoy. The work that's coming out of it isn't the most exciting, but it's okay. People are great and I seem to be doing well considering they're thinking of bringing me on full-time. Not super open to remote. However, I have another internship lined up right after this one. I really like the work this agency is doing, particularly from the account I'd be working on. So lots of potential for bookworthy stuff. Also, open to remote. Wwyd?

Wondering if anyone else has experienced similar?

Hi attorney fishes! I can't say much, but would anyone be willing to DM about evidence I might need to prove breach of fiduciary duty with a realtor broker who repped me as buyer? Would also be looking at breach of contract for same individual acting as a general contractor for me. Obviously would not be construed as legal advice or attorney client relationship, etc. Have begun consulting with attorneys where I live and getting very different responses about how much we could get in damages.


Currently have an offer for cyber risk advisory at Deloitte. I was wondering how difficult it is to jump from cyber risk to a technology consultant with Deloitte Consulting?
