Me and another teacher had a meeting with a parent and student. After the meeting, the admin asked us both to stay. He shut the door and yelled at me for not apologizing to the student (the other teacher did before the meeting and I 100% wanted to, but I felt like the opportunity wasn't there - and yes, I know I should have). Tomorrow I plan on apologizing to the student. But do I say something to the admin for yelling at me in front of a coworker? Or let it go.

Deloitte consultants who took maternity leave. How was the transition back? How quickly were you staffed?
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
I feel like I have a really negative relationship with my ADHD. As a child it really irritated and stressed out my mother so as soon as I mellowed out a little bit I always thought of it as a really negative thing. I still worry that if I talk too much or too fast, or forget something around her she'll get really annoyed or be angry with me. We've never talked about it but I think I might need to talk to a professional about it. Can anyone relate?
My 6mo baby started daycare 3 weeks ago. We raised concerns about the frequency of feedings during the day (she was going for 5 hours without getting a bottle). The teachers assured us that would not happen again. Today I noticed she’s went for 5 hours without being fed. I cried so much and I just can’t sit here and eat knowing she’s not eating. I am hesitating calling again because I don’t want to be that parent and potentially create a hostile environment for my baby. I just don’t know wtd 😭😭😭
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
Recently found out I’m pregnant. Husband and I are so excited, but we weren’t exactly planning this. I’m young (26) & only a 1st year assoc (started sept 2019). We were planning on waiting at least another year or two, b/c I love my job & firm & hoped to be more senior/established before needing to take leave. I’m trying to convince myself that I can “have it all” & am not losing my Big Law career by having this baby. Any tips or advice? (More in comments)
Hardest part of being pregnant (third trimester) is finding enough time in the day to go to the bathroom.
Has anyone found themselves completely lacking emotional resilience since returning to work? I returned 5 months ago and baby is a year old, so this isn’t PPD. I’m not remotely depressed either, but..
Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.
If you recently had a baby, would you tell friends/family they needed to be vaccinated to be around them?
1 year old gift ideas please! This is for the other baby in our nanny share. He has an older sister so he already has lots of toys and books. They gave us a book for our baby but she is our first kid.
Mamas, how much do you spend on gifts for other kids/toddlers birthday parties? We just started our 3 year old in daycare/preschool and there’s a birthday party all the time it seems. For good friends we spend around $50-$100 for their kids gifts but it’s starting to add up, especially for classmates my kid doesn’t know too well. What’s your average?

Dad's a little guidance please. We bought a Chicco car seat with base and a stroller that accepts the car seat. . I've been reading that other brands (e.g Britax, MaxiC) do not have a base and remain in the car. So how to Britax car seat parents move/carry their infants around? Remove from the car seat and hand carry or prop into stroller?
Currently, I put the baby into the car seat and he stays in it and is carried around in it. Trying to understand the process if I were to buy a Britax.
Do people negotiate on an allowance when buying a resale property? We found that the house needs a carpet replacement, paint and few minor fixes. Trying to understand what could be a reasonable allowance to ask for.
Immigrant here who did not grow up with typing lessons. I still type very inefficiently — I have to look at keys when I type.
Has anyone used a typing program as an adult that has taught you well and got you out of old bad typing habits?
What was your pre-training speed, your post-training speed, and the time it took you to get there?
Thank you so much! I need to be more efficient and quiet when I type.

I'm seeing a psychiatrist & have one person who knows I'm going through depression & anxiety. But can't call them/reach out to them every time. I feel like I shouldn't because it's too late, too early, too often or too much...they are very busy. Considering how much I'm sick of myself, I'm sure they are too. But when I'm having very intense moments from suicide ideation& my coping mechanisms don't work sometimes I don't know what to do. How was your experience w suicide prevention kind of chat?

Stuck in one of my bad cycles the past few weeks, have been getting progressively worse. I just completely shut out everyone in my life and become isolated in my own mind, which is a scary place for me to be, truly terrifying what my mind comes up with.
What makes me more depressed is not understanding why I am like this. What on earth do I have to be depressed about? I’m extremely successful, house, beautiful wife, all going well for me. I know this a rhetorical question but it just eats me.
How have y’all been able to recover from relationships that ended in a mature way where neither party was objectively wrong/both still care for each other? Covid times caused life events that exacerbated my partner’s depression which triggered my anxiety. After a heart to heart, we decided that it’d be better for both of us to separate. My past relationships ended due to cheating/toxicity, so I’m having trouble on how to navigate this.

It is normal for new parents to go through this. Can you confide in your SO? if so Inwould say talk to her and go to therapy together. You don't need to go through it alone.
OP - I recently learned that postpartum depression happens to men too. Please see a therapist! The pressures of taking care of a baby while working full time are really difficult (mine is 3 years old and I am still struggling). Parenting is difficult in ways that I had not imagined at all. So what you are feeling might be more common amongst parents than parents let on.
Also given how deeply you are thinking about this - I am sure you are doing great with both your SO and baby. The mind tricks us all the time into thinking we are not good enough. I am sure you are a great husband and dad.
Hey, it was really overwhelming for me as well to become a father. Most days the first couple of years were complete sh#tshows. There are still some days now that are the same. Each day gets a very small amount better, though, as the kid gets older. It's tough to notice because the change is infitesemal. But in the aggregate, over the months and first two years after birth, life eventually becomes more pleasant and easier. You will enjoy your child more too.
Would be better without me around (myself included). My S.O. does everything she can so I can have time of my own, but I feel either guilty for not supporting enough or that the little I do for the baby does not work.
Did you want to have a kid?
Our profession is not really conducive to family life. If that is the case, maybe step down for a couple of years and spend time with your family. You won’t regret it.
