In addition to that which should be a massive wake up call to those who have blinders on, the children whose haven is school. Whose home situation is neglectful or abusive and teachers were their source of love and light. There’s indications that schools may be out for the rest of the school year and one of my best friends is in an administrative role at an elementary school. This is exactly what is stressing her out and keeping her up at night.

After watching the Gabriel Fernandez story on Netflix, this was also a thought. I am truly hoping there isn’t an increase in child abuse out of this.

So my wife basically said she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. Don’t want to do anything about it. After couple kids, doesn’t feel it anymore. Also said it wasn’t anything I did and there’s no one else. I understand women’s body changes after child birth but can’t help thinking it’s gonna suck being in a sexless marriage. We’re still attractive and haven’t turned into couch potatoes…yet Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi moms. I’m 8 weeks pregnant. My husband told his parents about it today. They reacted in the worst possible way!

We really wanted a second child and glad that it happened without needing any interventions. I’m really mad right now! And just their words are making me cry! I expect 0 help from them to start with. But don’t need this negativity right now.

How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?
