Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh
Hello all! I hope you can help me out here.
So I have been struggling to get a job/even interviews after my long maternity leave.
I would love some feedback on what can I do to improve my chances on get an interview and of course a job.
I have 9+years of experience in HR-generalist. I moved from Mexico to Sweden so I’m mostly trying to get a remoto job since I do not live in a big city. Any tips on where I can look for my dream job?
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
Wife asked me what I wanted for Father's Day, I really have no clue... What do you usually ask for or receive?

I am 12 weeks pregnant and looking for a new job. My current job has been treating me poorly since they found out I am expecting. When is the right time to tell a company I’m interviewing with that I’m pregnant? After I get an offer?
Just came back from 6 mos of maternity leave and I feel all over the place. I’m unorganized, scatter brained, and feel like the wheels just aren’t cranking. Any tips on how to get back to where I was?
I test drove a 2017 330 gt, got an offer for around 28K. I need to fit 2 child seats and don’t want to get an SUV. It’s surprisingly roomy inside. Asking for the pros here for any insights or things to be aware of before I pull the trigger. My first german car upgrading from an accord.
I posted here some months back about my ectopic pregnancies but today, I'm posting to tell you all to hang in there and God will do it for you. (Please don't insult me of you don't believe in God because I strongly do).
In a nut shell, we had baby #1 without trying. Started trying for #2 and over 2 years, I had 4 miscarriages and 2 ectopics. In July, my doc informed me that the only way forward was through IVF. I was tired and confused. I PRAYED! and continued trying. (The rest in the comments.)
I wish some parents in our community would take responsibility for their kids' actions instead of praising the kid when they did something wrong:
My best friend’s 10 year old daughter just got diagnosed with scoliosis. She is divorced and has always said her ex was a great father. Since the divorce a few years ago, she’s been more and more negative towards him now that he is moving on a remarried, having a kid etc. I sympathize and try to keep her positive but she’s constantly complaining and feeling like the victim about everything. She refuses to get a therapist. I told her it won’t be the worst thing if
Some context: agency let go about 15% of the company a month ago. I was warned by my dept lead more layoffs could happen if we don’t win new business soon. I’m 35w pregnant.
What scenario (if any) is most likely:
- That I’m let go before my mat leave begins
- I’m let go during mat leave
- I’m let go immediately after returning from mat leave
Seems like potential PR nightmare for them, but I can’t ignore the fact that I was given a heads up that layoffs could happen.
Anyone else have a gaslighting parent? I saw a therapist about my mom for years and it helped, but now in biglaw, it can be really hard to deal with. sometimes my mom delivers a punch to the gut via text in between months of being my friend. I guess I’m just so wound up, my mom’s friendship (which is how I characterize it) is a comfort for me. So when she hits me with something randomly spiteful and hurtful, it’s like shock, devastation, loneliness, and anger all at once.
Does anyone not feel comfortable leaving their kid alone with either parents or in laws due to their carelessness? How do deal with them constantly asking for your kid to sleep over at their house?
Would anyone be interested in participating in a research study? The only requirements are to be a school district employee and have a child in the district with special needs. Please help!!!
I need a cheap computer to use just for surfing the web/online shopping while I’m out on maternity leave. There are some cheap pre-black Friday deals at Walmart right now. Anyone who knows anything about computers willing to take a quick peek and recommend something for me??? thanks!
Unless someone did what this kid did (learning to walk again) don’t post it on LinkedIn.

I often feel that mine give me things that I KNOW are best practice but I'm not there yet. I feel like I'm always being pushed aside or even targeted.

Hi investment fish. Looking for advice on best financial advisors or personal wealth managers in Chicago area. I'm switching jobs soon and also approaching $1M in net worth. Wanted a good advisor for things like 410k roll overs, tax/ retirement planning, etc. Been managing it all on my own until now and it's getting to be a lot. I know there's fee models like flat rate or % of $$ managed but little else beyond that. Thanks in advance!

Messed up my public trust eqip. Forgot to list an expunged alcohol charge using a fake id I had in college four years ago bc it was expunged. I realize that I was supposed to report this and told the investigator I honestly didn’t remember because of the expungement. Do I have any chance of getting the public trust now? I already have an interim.

Just got rid of all of my dating apps not because I found someone but because I’m done with them. Will either become a confirmed bachelor (more likely) or meet someone through friends
An old friend hit me up and asked me out! Both of us are in different states because of our jobs. We do video calls atleast 3 times a week. The individual is an introvert. They don't have many friends, interests nor desire to travel. They came over to see me over the weekend. I had planned to visit few places in the city. However, they were not interested to cover all the places and wanted to get back before it's too late. When we met, there were not many topics to talk about. Contd.
I hate how terrible recruiters are when you've entered their pipeline. I've been on interviews sometimes even 2 or 3! and get completely ghosted. no follow up, nothing. it's extremely rude. This is even after sending an email (maybe even a follow up) about what next steps are.
I'll add that this is for pretty senior roles too and it has happened time and time again. I'm so over it.
Ideological purity tests are the worst thing to happen to both the right and left wing.
In many parts of each camp, it is not sufficient to agree with one part or the other. You either accept the most aggressive version of the loudest part of the party's ideology or you're a "traitor."
