Hi Ladies, How much do you all spend on Father’s Day? Asking to get an idea on what others do. Please don’t respond with spending should be dependent on you the individual.
Working moms, would you choose a job that you really like or an easy job to spend more time with your child? It is so hard to make a choice…. I have two job opportunities- one for a MNC which has long work hours but great career outlook while the other company is much smaller but promises wlb. I have a toddler and hate to miss out her growth. But at the same time, I also want to think about my own interests without feeling guilty. Can you share your thoughts? Appreciate it!
Just found out I’m 5 weeks pregnant. Due to layoffs at my firm, should I tell HR really early to hopefully be somewhat more protected? Last pregnancy I waited until like 20 weeks to file paperwork.
Has anyone been a foster parent? How was the process? Does the state require foster parents to be a two person household? I’m 31 years old and single, and never wanted kids of my own. But I have worked in the social work system before, and do love kids. I’m at an age where I’m reflecting on what’s meaningful in life, & I want to be able to provide a child with a safe and loving home and be a positive impact on another life.
529 question: how much do you invest? I have a new born and expect at least one more kid. Living in IL (20k state tax exemption per year). Pretty confused with online resources as they ask me about my children future educational cost assumptions (I am an immigrant and not too familiar with US educational costs through UG)
Advice please! 2 kids - 2.5 and 6mo and last week was my first week back from mat leave. My toddler is throwing all sorts of tantrums now, which she never did before, demanding our attention. Doesn’t help that we had to switch nannies at the same time as me going back to work (she had her previous nanny since she was a baby). Please tell me it gets better soon?
I have really been working on myself to start dating and I met someone who seemed pretty cool, but within two dates dropped some massive baggage. His ex was pregnant and it turned out after it was born he found out it wasn’t his. I feel like he hasn’t really dealt with it, and he’s made some really uncomfortable comments about women that are slowly waving red flags, even though he doesn’t say anything directly about me. Would you have a conversation or run?
What silly thing did you believe to be true when you were a child? For example, I thought the picture on the side of the U-Haul trucks showed what was being transported inside the truck
If your parent were to fly to come visit you because they’re tired of being separated, would you be ok with that?
What are your bedtime routines for having two kids? We have a really good one for our toddler, but now need to put down our baby around the same time. Are you able to have a set routine for a baby and a toddler together or separate? Or is it more of a wishlist of tasks and order depending on how the evening goes and how the toddler behaves?
Finally finishing up nursing my second baby and in need of new bras! Any recs for large chested ladies without an underwire? Talking G or H cup size thanks!
Anybody else ever get periodically intense anxiety over climate change and general sustainability trends? I'm there today. Usually it's just a motivating factor to drive less, consume less, make better choices for what I do consume...but then other times I get to this point where I start wondering if it's even ethically responsible to bring a child into this doomed world based on how everything seems to be going. Like efforts aren't even going to matter because the world keeps devouring itself.
What are we giving for Father’s Day?
Hate waking up to news like this: https://www.sciencealert.com/bitcoin-illegal-almost-everywhere-after-shocking-blockchain-discovery-child-pornography
🐠 With a windowed parent - what do you say when a coworker asks about your deceased parent? (e.g. "What does your dad do") The truth can kind of kill conversations, but lying doesn't feel great.
Hi Ladies! Does anyone have good recommendations for wireless headphones that aren’t Air Pods? Air Pods don’t fit or stay in my ears (I have small ears and often have to use child-sized). Thanks!
If you’re dating someone who doesn’t speak English as mother tongue would you be curious about what all he or she says? Especially if it’s a non-romance language and you can never catch any of it
My first impression of HBO Max: the classic movie catalog alone makes it worth the price. Casablanca, 8 1/2, Seven Samurai, 2001, Bringing up Baby, Ivan the Terrible, Freaks, North by Northwest, Gone with the Wind, Doctor Zhivago, Ben-Hur, An American in Paris, at least eight Godzilla movies, A Hard Days Night, Rock n Roll High School....and so on.... This doesn’t include the other content like Harry Potter and DC Comics.

Caught a candidate and offerree lying about his GPA. Resume had a 3.9 and background check returned a transcript with 3.7 (doesn’t look like he was ever close to 3.9). Seems like a bright kid though, mostly just unsettled by the need to lie. What would you do?
I'm interested in applying for a financial modeling position at Deloitte. Can anyone tell me more about the following: what type of projects they typically work on, work/life balance, compensation (tier 2 city) and most importantly exit opportunities! Thanks.
Any Bain folks willing to chat and potentially provide a referral for a position I saw posted? Thanks!
