My kiddos are 3 + 1, currently sending them to the international school

Yes. Great experience so far. What’s your neighborhood school?

If you can afford Montessori, I highly recommend it.

Depends on your neighborhood I would say. My son attends private school.

Hi everybody 👋 I work for an experiential agency, and going on month (don’t even know) of not going onsite. There is no other word to describe not going onsite as a team other than “grieving.” My producers have had to almost entirely change their skillset to video production instead of event production. I am wondering if anyone else feels the same way, and if you want to share some tips on how you’re navigating these tough times. The good and bad days included!

Salam everyone, wanted to ask if anyone here is in a relationship with someone close to their age and how they’re navigating it for ex a guy being 22 and the girl being 24.

Also I’m Arab and will most likely be marrying an Arab girl if that changes anything.
