My 5 year old son demanded a haircut because he doesnt like his curly hair. Its too curly. He wants hair thats like Fletcher's. (Fletcher is his white friend from day care). My son and his sister are the only blacks at the day care. I dont know how to broach the subject with him.

Do you have any tips on how to land a FAANG+ SWE interview? I haven't had any luck applying online. It suspect there is discrimination against older people from the consulting world. I also faced the same thing going for startups who wanted more startup experience. It's pretty disheartening.

Ladies, any suggestions our 8th anniversary gift for the wife? We are in our early 30s. I am running out of ideas over the year 😔.
Hi Parents, need recommendation for taking care of kids hair. My kids are mixed race and their hair gets easily tangled to the point where we spend an hour to untangle the mess. Hair is also dry and the conditioner and or oil doesn’t seem to help. What are some of your go to products and routine? TIA
About to be a new dad. Starting to look into childcare but feeling a little overwhelmed. Would love to hear thoughts/opinions on what to look for besides convenience.
I really like the Mater Mea site designed for Black moms. I’m not affiliated with them nor have I written for them but I appreciate their mission and work. 💙
Thank y’all for starting this bowl! Newly expecting mama here 🤰🏾I’ll be 11 weeks tomorrow! My husband and I are praying that I give birth to healthy 🤴🏾 or 👸🏾. I look forward to learning from this group!
Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.
I listened in on this discussion about "Advocating for Black and Brown kids in US education systems" VERY useful information here. Sharing the link
New Dad here. 8 weeks in and I don’t feel the imagined bell and whistles of fatherhood. Is this normal?
Seeing local parents reacting to the public school lottery results in DC, got me super nervous about when it’s my kids turn.
I hate the idea of having so little control.
Anyone have kids that struggle with night terrors?
My daughter had one for the first time last night and it scared the crap out of me. It was like she didn’t know who I was.
Any of the sisters deal with gestational diabetes but already had a restrictive diet pre and during pregnancy?
Doctor says I have it, but I honestly don’t believe them. I don’t eat cane sugar (not even in sauces), gluten, dairy, or soy. So not surprised I couldn’t process their drink-I don’t consume stuff like that regularly. I walk a mile or do HIIT training 5x/ week. The condition doesn’t run in my family (and my mom has 4 sisters w/kids-good sample size) (cont’d in comments)
Potential unintended consequences of my parenting decisions is the most stressful thing ever.
The “right” approach can feel so clear one moment, then feel like a huge mistake the next.
Talk to me about discipline. What age did you really start laying down the law? Im patiently waiting out the terrible twos but at some point will need to reign it in if this continues...

Do any parents have a Lovevery discount code? Also, are there other similar services I should look it? Our LO is due in 3 weeks. So, I want to get him off to a good start.
Thanks all for this group￼. 1st time expecting dad 🧔🏾.
I’m a little bit all-over the place and not sure where to start financial planning from.
I live in a Tier-1 city and think it’s necessarily to move to Tier-3. It’s important that my kids grow up in a house vs. apartment. Also need to stretch my dollar as far as possible.

How much should I budget for the 1st year of baby?
Thinking of getting a Black Baby Alive doll for my daughter. Preferably one that talks and moves, but there seems to be so many. Any suggestions?
