My 2.5 year old is suddenly very clingy, crying to ‘go to mama’ anytime she’s not with me. This makes it super hard with WFH as she is fully aware that I’m home. She was always easy and distractable before. Anyone else dealing with this?

That’s normal behavior for that age. And why you need childcare when WFH so they can distract her and keep her from disturbing you.

I have a nanny. But all of a sudden she just wants to hang out with me

It’s my birthday in a few minutes. 2021 has been a terrible year for me. My marriage ended. It wasn’t a bad end though. We are still close, just not romantic partners anymore. The very first dog I ever had died and I couldn’t go see her because of the quarantine. I didn’t get a promotion that I more than deserved. I don’t think I get paid well. Most of my friends moved out of the city and I’m having to meet new people at 32. I love my job but it’s incredibly stressful. I’m terribly lonely.

Hello Everyone,

I am working since last 8.5 years. But my prosperous growth is very average. To overcome that i also completed my MBA ans BA course but it's just another piece of paper in my case right now. My basic Education is Electrical Engineering and i work with an OEM. Starting was a struggling phase, did't get the very good start. Thought of changing domain too but always felt short of opportunities. Trying outside India but no luck there too. I want to be into management, suggestions?
