How many times a week do y’all consider quitting. I’m a lawyer by background, my husband is in big law making like 5x what they pay me in big 4, and we work very similar hours. I do everything around the house, with 2 kids. I hate house work. I strongly dislike childcare, all day. I’m okay outsourcing housework but I wouldn’t want to have a live in nanny bc they are my children and I want them growing up with my care. I’m just really burning out/struggling/ finding it difficult to stay motivatd
I enrolled my baby into day care. She will turn one by then. I'm told she should feed herself with very little help. Is this possible? I am onto baby led weaning but I don't rely on it completely.
M34/Chinese. For those of you that have dated around in other cities, what do you notice is different in Chicago?
Coming from Manhattan, the difference in diversity is something that stands out to me a lot. I find here, that if I match or go on a date with someone that’s non-Asian, invariably I find that they’re into anime, K-pop, Asian culture etc.
Hello fishes, Do you have suggestions on Diversity & Inclusion activities that can be done virtually with a group? I found few ideas in google but would love to hear about any experiences and suggestions.
I’m interviewing at Slack and the recruiter is fantastic. She told me to take some time to think about my comp ask but that I should use my current salary at Meta as a guide but to go higher as staying at the same rate won’t do anything for the gender pay gap. I’m thinking of saying that I would like 15% higher but would also love to get an idea of what the salary range for a L6 or L7 marketer at Slack would be just to see if my expectations are in line.
Thanks in advance!
Just got an offer at Deloitte. Feel like comp/rank are too low due to lack of diversity of interviewers. :( Can anyone relate?
Anyone else juggling having kids at home during the winter break and trying to work from home around your SO (who is also working from home). The holidays are always SO hectic at my place and I'm feeling like a failure, my mother was a perfect housewife and I'm far from it lol. Other parents struggling with this?
How are moms juggling kids constantly getting sick at daycare… as the default parent and the demanding job, how does one succeed?? Is the system broken? Or am I missing something
I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.
All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.
How should I approach her in the upcoming year?

Granddaughter just accepted her first position in education as a para II. She supports one student but when that student is absent, she asked to help others. She asked me for advice about supporting a kindergarten autistic student that has just arrived from India and does not speak English and neither do parents. He is not aggressive but will refuse to move from task to task. What would be your advice?

Do you think diversity training actually works? I can't tell if it's just a way to tick a liability box or if it's actually effective.
I'm 32 y.o female with no desire to have kids. However, my parents (especially my mom) keep telling me to have a baby and how abnormal it is "to live childless without knowing a joy of motherhood". I've probably told her at least 100 times already that I don't want kids. What else can I say or do to stop this?
Those of you who are now successful but grew up lower middle class or poor how do you deal with the guilt of your parents still working crappy jobs and getting paid nothing. I can’t financially support them yet but I feel guilty. It’s hard to not always think about them or how to help them. I feel guilty when I buy something nice, travel, or just the comfort of working from home. I hide it well but it’s hard when I feel nobody around me relates.
Feeling redundant. Anyone ever feel the same?
How can I be sure I'm being seen as a value-add and not just an extra body?

Having so much anxiety because yesterday a stakeholder sent me multiple very long, angry teams messages about how bad of a job I’m doing. They were wrong, I’m doing exactly what was asked of me and my boss supports me. But how am I supposed to continue on this project after such disrespect? Idk why people think they can say whatever they want to creatives and pretend it’s “feedback”

Additional Posts in Conservative Teachers
It's great to have this bowl. I am astonished at the replies to conservative posts in the general bowls are. I don't mind sharing and having discussions, but not fun when the others are attacking and not communicating!
Hi everyone, I just found this bowl because I was thinking about starting one if one didn’t already exist. I hope this is a great place to discuss how to live out a conservative worldview for our students to emulate. I look forward to being a part of the conversation.
