Hi moms, anyone implemented taking cara babies 5-24 month sleep training course on their 4 month old?

We live in a major metro area close to downtown — city public schools which are supposed not amazing. Kids are 3 and 1 now... at what age do we think about relocating to suburbs for better public schools? I’m of the opinion that I’d want to change to the (again, supposedly) better public schools by middle school. I think it’s good to expose kids to a wider economic, ethnic, racially diverse student population and think leaving them for elementary could be good. How did you think about it?

My daughter has been begging for a cat for the last 2 years and we finally decided to get her one. I don't know anything about cats or taking care of pets. What am I getting myself into? And where can I buy a cat? We went to a couple of rescue places to adopt, but we didn't like any of the cats and they had very few options. They said to come back in a few weeks, but she's asking me every single hour.
Mommies, I have witnessed several households where men don't help with even the smallest chores. The kids grow up seeing this and probably believing that household work is only for women, no matter how tired they are after slogging at their day jobs everyday. What is the right way to tell parents about this upbringing and asking men to help out with household chores, at least for the sake of their kids' future?
