If there is one advice you would give to a new mom of 2 kids what would it be ? my sister is pregnant with baby 2 and she is freaking out as she has a toddler. My one advice to her was sleep train at 4 months. I thought many new moms , soon to be moms would benefit from this thread and I can share with my sister too.
My 22 month old son has been extremely violent recently, mostly towards his father. He bites, scratches and hits my husband a lot, often unwarranted, and once in a while, does the same to me. He is also very aggressively shaking his head back and forth when he doesn’t want to eat anymore and swipes food away that he doesn’t want. It’s pretty monstrous. Not sure if this is normal for his age or if we should start looking at behavioral therapists.
Random but say you had a flat earth father and anti-vax mother, is their child destined to fail? How do they recover from such a regressive mindset
Did you ever have thoughts of divorce within the first year of your child’s life? This has been so difficult (not parenting, but managing our marital issues) and even with therapy it has not gotten any better.
Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?

Looking to refer a friend for the USDC. She has been an at-home parent for most of the last 5 years but has gone back to high school teaching this year.

Faxing - where can I even do this? Have to fax some paperwork for my maternity benefits (short-term disability) and I can’t think of where I could access a fax machine since I’m 100% WFH. Also 7 months pregnant and having mega baby brain so hopefully there isn’t an obviously solution I’m missing 🥴

Does the new child tax credit that will be passed by congress apply to 2021 or 2020? I.e, should I wait to file my taxes this year, or will it not actually apply until next year?

Deloitte 🐠 (+ others if applicable), what do you have to do admin wise if you get married abroad and your spouse is not joining you in US yet? For example, tracking & trading sounds like it’s going to be complicated. Also don’t feel like wasting money by adding them to the insurance plan if they aren’t in US yet.

I think I am hitting my lowest point during the quarantine now - been four months since I saw my loved ones, living alone and now on a really stressful project 🙁 I don’t know how much longer I can keep myself motivated. Just wanted to vent, thanks for listening!
Currently a second-year associate at a regional firm. I have become really unhappy with the life-style at a firm and the constant stress of meeting my billable requirements. It was always my goal to go in-house, but I know I likely lack the requisite experience to make a move somewhere that can offer meaningful advancement. Any advice? I know it will likely be that I need to “stick it out” for a few more years, but I am just extremely dissatisfied with the prospect of being at a firm for years.
