Hello fellow desi fish! Any thoughts on how much health insurance to procure for a parent back in India? Is a 3 lakh policy with a 5 lakh top up sufficient for hospital procedures in non covid times? I'm trying to understand if I should update the current policy now that it's up for renewal.
Unless someone did what this kid did (learning to walk again) don’t post it on LinkedIn.
Today is my last day BFing (after building a stash in the freezer). Baby turned one last week and going back to work next week. Cracking open bottle of champagne with hubby tonight and getting drunk😂
Hi. Visiting this weekend with my mom (61 y/o). Any recommendations on good food (steak or good Italian) and places to go? We are staying in the garment district and will be seeing phantom of the opera. Any tips are welcomed. Just a fun mother daughter weekend. (Mom does not do night clubs and bars lol)
Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.

Third MC at 6 wks. First was chemical pregnancy, second was Turner's. On this one they said the baby was Male but I (husband) am missing a Y chromosome so I can't father any males. I have no idea what this means for our journey 😞
Fun ideas on how to tell parents I’m pregnant virtually?? Would like to do something kinda fun and not just say it
If you went part-time, was there any impact on your benefits? My firm doesn’t have a part-time policy but a partner proposed that I do that rather than leave while pursuing a project for 1-2 years. I’m considering having baby number 2 and I’m not sure whether my leave would be impacted.

Hi Moms, just had baby #2 and we want to upgrade our family car from Toyota Rav4 to a 3-row luxury SUV that's nice looking inside and outside, reliable and has decent cargo space too. My husband doesn't like the exterior of Grand Wagoner. We are considering the Grand Cherokee, Cadillac Escalade or Lincoln Navigator. But I have read terrible reviews about Escalade. Folks seem to like GMC Yukon Denali but I'm worried it'll be too big for me to drive. Appreciate recommendations / thoughts. Thanks!
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
Hi mamas, FTM here. How do you trust and buy plastic toys on Amazon? What do you look for? I am paranoid about chemicals or anything toxic in toys given I was told babies lick everything. For e.g. I saw this in the highly recommended list of things to buy and product has great reviews and ratings. However, there is a comment which says ca proposition warning, this is not safe. Any tips for a paranoid mom please. https://www.amazon.com/598701-Baby-Crinkle-Square-Sensory/dp/B07D5ZYQD7
I am severely burned out and my boss tells me to suck it up. He's been a realtor for 50 years only because he inherited this company from his father, but he never had to do any of the hard lifting. Being a realtor is hard and tiring, y'all.
SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!
Turned 45 today.. female, divorced and no kid.. somehow feel like wasting time in consulting working with immature SMs who thinks my way or no way. Any idea to spend the day doing something interesting in home

Fishes, Basically, I’m a front-end developer. I have work with most of the front-end technologies and frameworks. I want to learn back-end to get rid of the dependency from the other person who work with the the back-end for the common tasks.
It would be highly appreciated if you could give me some advice/resources/roadmap on the same.
Currently at FAANG in a product adjacent role. It is very hard to transfer internally to PM, especially without a technical background, especially since I do not have a technical background. I scored a 690 (3.7 top undergrad, urm) and was thinking of applying to b-school this fall or the following year as it has been a dream of mine and could use the network.
Does an MBA make sense for me if my goal is PM (also open to S&O with end goal of VC) or should I just apply directly / get an MS?
Is it appropriate to email a hiring manager for an update? I emailed HR on Monday. I had an interview two weeks ago (the third interview) for a position I really want. I haven’t heard anything and I keep checking the status and I’m not rejected yet. I thought about emailing the director who I initially interviewed with today since I haven’t heard from HR.

Hi everyone, does anyone have anything regarding “ meet the teacher virtually”. Materials, PowerPoint, Google slides? Anything, I am at a lost. I teach the littles- first/ second grade. Thanks

I went to High School in one of America's isolated poverty pockets. In that town the only meaningful question would be, "do you have an actionable plan to getting out of this area and starting your life?"
Wow. I think that tells you everything you need to know. They need to equip students with the tools to actually do that though.
I definitely would put an emphasis on personal finance and personal happiness before anything. Career conversations are great to have, but I feel that most seniors don't want to commit to one career path just yet and that's okay, and they should be told so. Instead, I would ask them what kind of work like think they would prefer to do (corporate, outdoor work, etc.) and what they want to do/accomplish in the next five years. Short term goals are far less daunting than having them decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.
My recommendations would probably need to be implemented well prior to their last day of school, or even their final year. I am amazed that so few high schools teach any kind of life skills / financial literacy courses. In my opinion, these should be mandatory. And I speak from experience. Every young adult exiting high school should have a firm grasp on how to balance a checkbook, how to search for a job/interview, how to negotiate a lease. The fact is, not every kid goes to college, and even those who do should still learn these fundamental skills to help them navigate those first critical years on their own.
So, I'll follow this up with an answer for OP - in lieu of such training, I'd at the very least provide a book or list of links to help direct them to where they can learn these things.
I would ask if they are now ready to face the real world. It could be overwhelming on their part. So it's important to give them an idea of what to expect once they are on their own.
My students wanted to know about taxes, how to figure out taxes, car insurance costs, car payments, rent and renting with others, rental insurance, job benefits, college costs.
Honestly this is what should be taught. So many students get into the real world without a clue of how to do any of it.
My postmaster says that high school students come to him asking how to write addresses on envelopes. 😳. Basic tax forms and how to register to vote are important as well. I am sure there are more but those two popped into my mind
I had my eyes opened the other day when my son (a junior) didn't know how to address an envelope, either. I was shocked. I assumed stuff like that would have been taught in elementary/MS English classes.
Considering that kids are rarely taught the necessarily skills they need to survive adulthood in the high school setting. Practicality wise, I would advise them if they feel they are equipped for the life after high school. That would be a good question to assess their anxiety and readiness to take on the world.
Ask them what skills they've picked up do they think would help them survive in college or in real life. I feel like you never really get taught about some important matters in life even back when we were the students. High school kids could use more knowledge about financial matters.
Not necessarily stuff that is all on the school but:
How to call and set up an appointment for the doctor/dentist
How to send a teacher/professor/boss a polite email addressing a concern
Taxes, budgeting, how to shop smart, how to organize a memoir/personal story/letter, eye contact and listening skills, looking beyond the idea of “getting” rich.
I teach HS seniors and am in touch with many graduates. This is what they want and need.
