I'm very seriously considering going back to school, specifically for nursing. Are there any adult learners here that can tell me about how to afford school, living expenses and child care? I'm starting to get discouraged at the thought this may not even be a possibility.
6 weeks pregnant, but donnot have pregnancy symptoms like nausea or morning sickness.
I have fatigue though,but tbh, that has been constant and normal since i had my first and she is 4 now.
Breast are slightly tender.
Did anyone else had no major symptoms during early pregnancy? Is this normal?
Hi moms! Need some advice or recommendations. My 5yr old sweats profusely, I researched some natural deodorants free of any harsh chemicals and safe for his age. We tried it but noticed he broke out in tiny bumps from it so discontinued it. He needs some type of product my poor kid smells after running and playing. Any recommendations that may have worked for your little one?
Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture
When did you start to feel pregnant? Noticeable changes within yourself, food desires, etc.? Ttc after a mc and I’ve blocked out any memory of the early happier days…
As I am looking for new opportunities, i suddenly feel a little guilty even though my current company hasn’t given me any raises and is constantly overlooking my work.. is this what they call graduation goggles.. learned that lingo from how I met your mother.

Child support lien - I do defense and sometimes run across cases where the plaintiffs outstanding child support lien exceeds their highest demand. What do people do to settle in these situations?
When should my wife tell her boss about her pregnancy? Before covid it was until we couldn’t hide it anymore, but now we could hide it from zoom all the way til she’s due. It’s our first child and didn’t want to put her in a place of being discriminated against. She works at a smaller 60 person company.
Someone just let their child walk up to me to pet the dogs on our walk. No asking. Just coming right up! I was like, Don't ever do that! You don't know if I have a vicious killer over here! My cattle dog is terrified of the world. What if today was the day she decided she had enough? Get permission, then give me time to prepare (put the nervous dog in a Place command away from me and ensure I had control over the friendly dog so she doesn't jump and knock your kid over! Unrelated pic.
I like my friends kids a lot but I’m not sure I’ll ever want my own. I’d love to just be an auntie. Except my SO wants them. Pretty sure there’s a pending hard convo. How did you know you didn’t? Besides those who always knew…
Be gentle 😔

I am curious how many high school and middle school teachers of both low and high incidence disabilities, feel like they are knowledgeable enough about transition services. Additionally, how did you become knowledgeable - continuing education, mentors, self-educated, parent educated? I am currently working on my masters and researching the obvious gap between high school teachers and community service providers that inevitably results in frustration and delayed services for students.
Deloitte Moms - I am out on maternity leave and i am supposed to join back at the end of November. I plan to join and work for about two months (because i don’t want to pay back maternity pay) and based on how/if i am unable to not cope with the work pressure and the demands/needs of my LO apply for a sabbatical.
Has anyone applied for a sabbatical? Is it easy to get approvals?

Need advice! Just received a promotion (felt like it was both past due and a retention tactic) at a company I really enjoy working at, but salary is nowhere near competitive. Also received an offer for a more strategic role, exciting company, for $35k more in base alone, and with equity, nearly $50k more in TC. Would I be burning bridges if I took the offer?
