If you have more than 1 kid, then do you get backup-care per kid or fixed number of days? Someone in my team bought up this question, and I checked the Policy and spoke with HR to confirm in my organization it's per hours, so they reimburse 240 hours or 30 days of backup care in an annual year. Curious if it's the same in your organization as well? Husband and I are both in industry now and both of our organization reimburse per hours or per days basis.

Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.

Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
