I’m a Senior Consultant and I’ve never worked a weekend in my 3 years besides sending a few emails & travel, if that. 80-100 hours per week is ludicrous, most I’ve ever done is 60 (not including travel) and that’s been maybe 2-3 times in 3 years.

Toddler toilet training: my daughter is 2.5 years old and we are late with toilet training with her. Any tips for toilet training? She just sits on the potty and doesn’t do anything.

Thanks
