What is a useful, comprehensive but not too long of a book for parenting toddlers?
LO is 16 months old, very sweet and social, at the park every day with other kids with either me or her nanny. Not in day care. Yesterday we had a play date and she slapped another baby on the head. Not hard and did not scare her, but the act of “aggression” took me by surprise and I felt terrible about it. I’d like to be more proactive about toddler psychology, what’s to come and how to react/ teach. TY!
I want to send flowers to my grandmother who's visiting my aunt for mother's day. But I won't want to send flowers to my aunt and I feel like I'm going to have to send them to my aunt too if I send them to my grandmother. Help.
Newly pregnant (~8wks) and unable to take my ADD medication unless I “think the risk of not taking it is more harmful to me than taking it could be to the baby”. (How do you even evaluate that?! Every study I’ve looked at is inconclusive.)
My 12hr workdays are becoming 14-16 without medication and it’s brutal when combined with morning (read: all day) sickness. I’m exhausted. If not for the 2wk break we’re on, idk what I’d do. Any advice from other ADD moms who have been through it??
I’m pregnant with my first child. It’s early, but I’m already dreading telling my project leadership since I’m a key player on my account & I also got promoted. The client is heavily reliant on me. When’s the soonest I should tell them? I’m assuming after the 12-13 week mark...
Hi everyone!!! Last year I put together a list of classrooms to exchange valentines with! We mailed 1 valentine to each class and included a picture if we could, and a few things about where we live and things we do!
I currently have 13 classes signed up! The more the merrier!!
We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand.
I have a form to fill out if you are interested! I will email everyone the list probably at the end of the week if not sooner!
Hi ladies. I hope you’re well. I’m curious if anyone has adopted a child as a single parent?
In the tail end of mid 20s now (so not planning to do it till like my early 30s) but just trying to do research / curious.
So, how much work are you giving elementary students? I just got the calendar from my kid’s teacher. While I am teaching from home, I’m supposed to make sure my kid does 4+ hours of work.
Hi, I took emergency leave for 15 days to look after my mother who undergone minor surgery and needs bedrest. My pm didn't ask any proof. will they ask when I'm back to work? Actually I don't have any receipts. I've lost it. Wipro
Thoughts on thanking people for baby shower gifts? Sending a physical card in the mail seems a little outdated and unnecessary to me but I would like to express our gratitude for the gifts! 🤔
I just had my 3rd and final child and will be going back to an “on call 24/7 job” that doesn’t interest me anymore for multiple reasons. No 401k not paying enough and I’ve been there for 4.5 years. I’d love to go remote and work from home but would like to stay in the medical management industry. Any ideas? I’m currently an executive director at an assisted living in Alabama and currently make 67k.
I had *just* gotten back into running (2 weeks) when I found out I’m pregnant! Great news, but would you keep running? Doctor says it’s up to me.
I’m 9 weeks pregnant and trying to keep my work groove going while not vomiting on everyone. Can’t wait until I get through the first trimester and feel comfortable being open about this whole mess.
So I'm just going to put it out there, how realistic is it to have a child while being a women consultant?
What's the real reason white people leave the pool when a black person gets in? It happened to me when I was a kid and now I'm watching it happen to my kids. They even disperse when we show up to the park. I'm sure kids will ask soon. My mom told me some people still equate black with dirt but I thought that school of thought was in decline.
Q: How much time did you take off for maternity leave? Please include your position/title and how long you were with the company before taking leave.
Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?
I am getting ready to send my 2 year old toddler to a toddler program next week for the first time. Have to fill out a form “bathroom waiver”, which is basically allowing teachers at the school to clean my child after a potty, including genital area. I feel uneasy about this but I know I have to let them… I assume all parents have signed such waiver?
Helping my friend share this petition - his father has been wrongfully detained in China on false espionage charges. It would mean a lot if you could take a second to sign this! https://www.change.org/p/donald-j-trump-free-us-citizen-kai-li-from-chinese-prison-freekaili
Anyone work at Deloitte know the process to request maternity leave? Who to let know first and how far in advance? Maximum time i can take for maternity leave? I am a new excepting mom.
Wait, did TMobile just copy a meme again??? The old “text isn’t Google, old-and-out-of-touch parent”??
Ok so it seems like someone came to this bowl to laugh at others. That’s exactly why I created this bowl and it will not be tolerated. If you are not a democratic educator please leave. I don’t crash the teachers for trump page so don’t do it here.
What are the best techniques and methods to use when pivoting from Business Operations to HR? I am in the early career stage category too

Guys, off topic question.
I've recently switched to a new company, I've got a new PF member ID there under them.
In previous member account (@Capgemini) I had a pf amount left.

Can someone help me understand with the process?
How long will it take ?
What are marketing senior managers making? I’ve been with the firm for a while but feel like I’m below the average and not getting rewarded for tenure.
Hi all! Does anyone in here use the Dreamscape reading game on Clever with their kids? What are your thoughts?
What shirt do you all wear for zoom interviews? Blouse, button down, etc? Context: for consulting and strategy roles
What you suggest?
One position up in ibm or better package in another company with 20% more pay but one position lesser.
Hey all. Seeing a lot of posts here of people sharing their "books". As a marketing strategist looking for a new opportunity, what is essential to include in a book? My work isn't exactly flashy like a designer's might be. Should I put some of my case studies together? Do you all host your books online? Any tool recommendations for creating these?
Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.
Partners - how does your firm incentivize Partners to collaborate and bring the best of your firm's thinking to each account without getting into a turf war?
Why would a Partner at your firm reach out more broadly and pull in more (v. fewer)? At my current firm, I am seeing some information / relationship hoarding. I recognize this is common across the board but I am curious how your firm is tackling this institutionally.

I have a substitute teacher orientation to go to tomorrow. What should I wear? Business suit or is that too much?
My personal favorite
Merry Christmas, y'all.
5th graders have a field day with this one!!
It’s funny… but unfortunately so true!! 😆🤔😢😳
Yes it is, Yes. It. IS! 🥂
Rocky always wore gloves
I’m torn. I have a chance after 10 years to finally get in a district, but as a para. I was thinking it would be a good foot in the door to be promoted later on. Is that true. I also have an offer for a lead prek teacher at a daycare center. Idk what to do. 😩
I am leaving the classroom.
I don't want to manage so many humans at one time, anymore. I'm considering working remote to be able to travel more easily and figure out where I want to live and what I want.
Is there anyone who has left the classroom or the education field? What jobs were you able to transition into?
Am I the only one noticing how hard it is to get substitute teachers in Massachusetts? Pre-COVID it was a fight for hours. Now I’m one of only three in my district and all the schools are trying to get me in. I just passed my MTELs and they’re wondering if I can wait to look for a teaching position. What is going on?
