Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?

Anyone tried teaching sign language to their babies before they started speaking? When is a good time start? And resource that can help new mothers teach their baby?
Today’s confession is I do not like my brother. I love him but I do not like him. I know he’s a child but I resent being forced to be his second parent who tries to correct the wrongs of our actual parent but is told to “stop being mean”. Meanwhile he’s 16 but can’t tie his shoes and has to be instructed like a toddler. I worry because I see little signs of improvement and I know he dislikes me because of the firm hand I’ve taken but I just want him to be raggedy for life.
Hey Cyber friends! I’m a life long professional creative looking to get out. I’m fascinated by Cybersec/Infosec and have been learning a small amount. Tryhackme + YouTube + beginning to learn some python. However, I’m well aware that these baby steps don’t compare to the real job.
My questions: do you like what you do? Would you recommend the field or your discipline to a friend? What is the best and worst part of your job? Grateful for any and all responses. Thanks for letting me lurk! 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Has anyone had a situation where someone berating you for being child free just went too far and crossed over into literally being seriously offensive?
Thoughts on chiropractor for babies to help them sleep through the night? I went to see a chiro when I threw out my back carrying around my huge baby around. At the chiropractor office there are always all these kids and babies at the office getting adjusted. They say it can help with a whole bunch of things, including babies sleep better at night.

A friend received feedback after his McKinsey case interview saying some of his answers were not “detailed enough”. He stated that he had 4-5 discussion points around each topic area and the interviewer never asked him to clarify or go into detail. Has anyone received that feedback before and how did you improve the next time?

Seems I can’t keep them on track. Wondering if I am trying too much on academics? I feel I should lighten up but if I give a lot of down time I don’t want others to think I am lazy. Trying to find that balance
