It’s written in the leave policy. You can also confirm with your talent consultant to triple check that it hasn’t changed but I know couples that got it.

It’s funny that so many people are confused by this phrase, specifically men. It means the parent! Adoptive, gay, man, woman, guardian; any parent!

You both get and previously it was like you both can’t take together but that has changed now. Me and my ex husband took one after another and covered 8 months without daycare .

My husband works for a small family firm. We asked for 2 weeks for him but “deadlines” came up and we got about 2 days. So happy for you and your husband and the way things are *hopefully* trending for families bc that was BRUTAL.

The world population is nearing 8 billion! How do you feel about humans overpopulating mother earth and depleting resources and destroying natural habitats?

Or perhaps cultural norms that are outdated, but still very influential?

Moms of multiples, do you feel like you had more of an attachment with one of your kids more than another? I’ve got a 5 mo old and a 2.5 year old and just don’t remember being as connected to my 2.5 year old when he was a baby as I do my 5 mo old (both boys). Even my husband notices it. I feel terrible that my older may notice too. I love them both to pieces but baby just seems so much more enthralled with mommy and interactive with me than my older at this age. Curious if others have felt?

The unthinkable has happened to a colleague with the loss of a very young baby. We went through some of the parenting journey at the same time so there’s a connection but never knew each other closely. I know I can’t fix it but I would love to do anything I can that is appropriate and sensitive. Would a night of accomm in a nearby country town be suitable- thinking get them out of apartment for a scenery change and a refresh? Or am I overstepping. Any ideas?

We found a condo and are breaking our lease (ends July, we move out February). Their online post has 6 pictures which includes 3 of the fridge and 1 of the front door glass pane.

I overheard a small law firm owner saying he will never hire women because the last female attorney he hired ended up being pregnant, and left the firm immediately after her maternity leave was over. How is this kind of discrimination still going on? How could we address this? One thing I can think of is mandatory parental leave regardless of gender, but I doubt it’ll ever happen in the US.

Bdays are my fav. This might be extreme but I might go take a Plan B pill.
