Bruh. We just want to know who in in our country. Americans are not anti immigrants as your post and the media portray. You are welcome in America so long as you go through a border checkpoint, tell immigration how long you will be in the country and receive a Visa. When I went to Canada, immigration ask me if I had a job, what my profession is, if I had a DWI and they did a background check on me. Why isn’t anyone calling Canada racist and discriminatory jerks? It is the legal thing to do..

Hey, I'm going through the immigration system right now and you seem to have ZERO clue how miserable, frustrating, and humiliating it is. Getting a permit to work after graduating, trying to be sponsored by a firm, and getting a green card can and will take you ten years. That's right you heard me it takes 10 years to become a citizen here. Americans want highly skilled workers? Lol get outta here. The probability of getting a work visa (what y'all talk about highly skilled workers) is 20%. So yea imagine networking all your academic life, being the top of your class, and after holding multiple internships you got 1 chance to get to work in the us after graduation. And that one chance is 20-30%. And let's not get into the discussion of corporations using sponsorship as leverage to pay us less, hold us down, and work us until we get that green card. Check your privilege.

We had new neighbors move in across the street a few months ago. A couple with a child of about 7 years old who clearly has a cognitive disability of some sort (I suspect autism).

I thought perhaps his parents kept an eye on him through the window, but today he was hanging on a neighbor’s front stoop for a good half hour. I went over to talk to him and see if (con’t)

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise.

I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA
