Hi all. Hoping this bowl provides a way for single-parents to support each other emotionally. For me my job is super demanding not only hourly but mentally and I don’t get enough sleep, can’t cook for myself, can’t exercise, etc. I know you get it. My kid (I have just 1) is amazing and she gives me so much but she also takes a lot of energy. I know you get it. Welcome to the bowl.

Hi guys

This question may not be related. However I wanted to know from personal and family point of view how it is like to relocate from India and live abroad .
Let's say Family consists of husband , wife and a kid . I understand we will get good facilities, education, cleanliness , good air etc , however I wanted to check whether people gel up easily in the new environment? Don't they feel loneliness/ difficult to adjust? Do they look for similar asian nationalities to kill boredom?

Do single parents usually end up staying single most of their life? Flings here and there, some get remarried but end in separation, and another groups just find it hard to date - that’s from my perspective. Is it usually the father who is the hardest to date or the mother who has the most challenge?

Anyone else work in ID/litigation with high billable targets, plus a working spouse and young children? Any time management tips and examples?

I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?


I feel unfulfilled with my life. I have a son who I absolutely love(of course) and a fiancé I adore and that treats me like a queen. But I have wanted to travel around the US for so long and even thought about moving out of the state I am in to experience some things. I’ve never known what’s it like to live independently.

I’ve never told anyone this. I love my life overall though as my family makes me happy but sometimes I get to thinking about the what if’s!


I’m feeling down. 😢 After 3 failed IVFs with the last one ending in a chemical pregnancy I sought the opinion of a second fertility doctor. She said given my age of 45, my husband and I had the same chances of getting pregnant with another round of IVF with my own eggs as I would naturally and wouldn’t move forward with IVF, only with egg donor. My AMH is 2.6 and FSH was 7.4 just this past month. Should I ignore her and seek a third opinion? Not quite ready to go down the egg donor route yet.

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks
