🐠- I want to learn about world wars .. reasons why it happened and what transpired. Any movies/ tv series you recommend that gives me a full picture chronologically? Hated history as a kid
I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)
Anyone try to teach your kid to read? Our 5yo has been home for the past year. So I am trying to get her started on “teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons” to get her ready for stuff she missed by not going to preschool. Struggling a bit coz I am an immigrant and never learnt this way either. Any video resources that will help me and my 5yo?
I've been single my whole life and recently discovered I very much have an anxious-avoidant attachment style with a narcisstic mother. Does anyone have experience dating with this? Desperate to change
I work in a self contained classroom. A parent of one of my kids wants to come and volunteer after learning all my staff quit. Can I allow her to do this? Admin has no idea and I'm not sure with FERPA laws.. advice, suggestions? What can I have her do if she can come?
Are there any people that are single mothers by choice? (Had a kid on your own and raising on your own by IVF or adoption) Would love to hear your experience and any advice!
An executive director was projecting his computer today and got into some technical issues. Hence, everybody in the meeting got to see what he was watching last night - "how I met your mother" 😬😬😬
I need all hand foot and mouth tips and tricks!! Both my baby and toddler have it, as well as myself.. I think we are past the fever stage finally but everything hurts to eat. Anything I can do for relief besides Motrin/Tylenol??
Has anyone changed employers in the same year as taking parental leave? Planning to actively look elsewhere, starting in June. However, we are expecting our first child in December.
Honest thoughts on baby boy name being Denver? I like unique names but can’t decide if I love it or hate it.
I’m 27 and feel like I’m falling behind. Everyone is either getting engaged, married, buying a house, or having a baby. Essentially moving on, and I’m not sure what to do. I feel like wallowing in pity, but I know if I want something I should work towards it instead of complaining. I just feel so lost, and wanted to vent.
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
We are a first generation immigrant, working couple in our 30’s with a one year old baby. Have always lived in the city and work in the financial district. We have outgrown our 2bedroom condo on UES and are feeling the need for more space, especially for the kid. What are some of the better NYC suburbs for young families? Looking for an easy commute into the city, safe place with good schools and happening vibe with dining options, bars etc. Just starting our research, so any info is welcome!
Hi ladies! I would love your advice! I got engaged this weekend and have been receiving a lot of questions regarding the date, venue, etc. I want to take a few weeks to enjoy the engagement glow and be present with my fiancé, but I am concerned because my future mother in law is already very involved (her daughter was married 2 years ago & she planned the entire wedding). I want her input, but I also want to honor my mom because she wants to help too. What tasks did you assign your MIL to help?

I love my husband. He’s kind, sexy, fun. We have a good time together. But he’s become a real financial mess during our marriage. Huge debt because he’s in and out of jobs. Including tax debt. He also has children from his prior marriage who are expensive and greedy. What would you do?
Does anyone know how much of paternity leave one can get at Deloitte? Is it 16 weeks? Did anyone have trouble getting it approved?
Thinking about joining Accenture (US). Does anyone know when the maternity leave policy is effective? I have heard it may be Day 1 of employment, but usually it happens after a year.
I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID. We don’t have family nearby to help when daycare closes and I’ll be headed into busy season upon my return. I’m already on a reduced schedule. No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.
Trying to take advantage of my mental health resources and find a psychotherapist, does anyone have any guidance on how to find someone good or any recommendations? Is Greenspace the best standard or should I find a private therapist off Psychology Today? TIA!
Any thought on Havas these days? Also I have an interview with AisleRocket, is the online reviews pretty accurate? (fyi the reviews are shitty)
Serious question, how does anyone save enough to retire? Does anyone here have plans to retire early and how are you doing it? Is it doable alone without an S/O?

Can anyone please share insights from their experience or understanding of differences in EY-Parthenon (esp. growth opportunities e.g., promotion criteria, and work culture) in the US (East) and UK (London) office? Given a choice at the Manager level, where would you prefer to work and why? Thanks in advance!
Just wanted to know how's the experience in terms of work culture, work life balance, growth and Annual hike in OLA...please advice..
Kind of a quick rant. I did a quick search through some firms websites because I am thinking of switching jobs. It is definitely clear most firms still do not embrace diversity. I know diverse applicants must be just as qualified! So what is keeping attorneys of color out?? It’s so discouraging.
