Moms of teens, where you at?
My teenager pulled some sneaky crap tonight to go to a party at midnight many cities away. I lost my sh*t.
How are other mom’s handling their teens and parties? Advice needed.
I grew up going to parties all the time, getting into trouble, so I know what happens at parties. To this, I have become a strict parent, more so because the very real fear of fentanyl everywhere 😩
Can we just skip the teen years please?!
Needing advice on how to stay focused. I’m 34 weeks pregnant, and am planning on working up to my due date. All I can think about are things I need to do at home to get ready for this baby...
I just got an offer from EY in London but considering based on what the maternity policy is which doesn’t seem to be spelt out in contract or benefits pdf. Does anyone know a) if there’s a minimum employment period to qualify and b) what the enhanced maternity pay is. I’ve read both 16 weeks and 18 weeks.
In terms of offering flexible work options for women with families, it seems like consulting/law are way ahead of banking. Agree/disagree? Ex. work from home, extended maternity leave, less travel.

Parents of COVID babies: How long did you wait to have visitors meet the baby? Even your parents?
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.
Anyone use the Lo&Sons Rowledge backpack as a diaper bag? ImLooking to purchase a new work backpack that can also transition to a stylish diaper bag once baby arrives. Thoughts?
In my third trimester (8 weeks left) and feeling so overwhelmed by impending motherhood. I’m trying to absorb as much information as possible, have taken a birth class, Tinyhood classes, read articles and parts of parenting books etc and still feel utterly unprepared. I consider myself a quick learner but I can’t shake this feeling that I have no clue what I am doing. also stressing over things like, what if our dogs don’t like the baby? How do I calm my anxiety :(
Really burning out from everything. I’m back after maternity leave and my full time schedule just kicked in. Baby girl just turned 5 months and is at home with family. Oldest in preschool. I just can’t do it all. I can work 8 hours sure but I mean I’m going 9-5, back on for a half hour 530-6, back off until 8. In my “down time” I am breastfeeding or having dinner with family then going through the entire childcare routine. I get everyone ready in the AM. I do drop off and pick up. I can’t breath
Any recommendations on how I can help my 62 year old mother find a new job? she has worked in a bakery for over 49 years since immigrating to the US in 89 and the bakery is now closing. She's terrified of not working and I know it's not good for her to stay at home. She doesn't have any clerical or typing skills and I personally would like her to find a job that is not as strenuous or physically demanding as a bakery. she has an accent but can speak english well & loves customer service.

My baby is 3 months and I am just returning back to work. My partner and I plan to watch him while working from home. Curious to know when did other mommas enroll baby in daycare or hire a nanny? We are planning to hold off as long as possible but know it might be difficult to juggle after a certain point.
Any advice on timing kids with your job title? I’m currently an SA in Advisory, debating whether it makes sense to have a kid while still in this role, or have a kid once I make manager (1-2 years). Thoughts? Does it really make a difference?
I'm done with this app. People are talking about that parents don't have the right to know if their kid wants to be called by a different pronoun and keeping things from parents. Makes me sick. I told them they're all fucked in the head. So I'll be booted soon. Good knowing some of you. Peace.
My baby daughter is almost 1 and I’m looking to stop breastfeeding and wean to cows milk soon. She has had very few bottles in the past 12 months (combo of Covid + she rejected bottles for several months) so we’ve primarily been nursing. I’m looking for weaning tips from parents in a similar situation. Seems like most methods involve combo of breast milk + cows milk in a bottle but that doesn’t really work for us since I haven’t pumped since like November!

How does being a director (one level below partner) differ from being a partner? Meaning, how did your work life change once you were promoted?
I had a call with one of analysts this morning who is a newly divorced father. I saw the impacts it has carried into other facets. I’ve been there and I know it isn’t talked about often in our line of work. To anyone else struggling with this or has struggled with this in our profession, it may not get easier but the coping does. Never stop seeking positive outlets and support networks. We’re here.

Can we please address the notorious Queen Bee Syndrome? The amount of times I have encountered a female manager/senior who distances herself from other women in the workplace in order to succeed is exhausting. They view or treat subordinates more critically especially if they are a female of colour. They refuse to help other women rise up the ranks as a form of self-preservation. Women of colour are exhausted and tired of constantly proving we belong. Any advice on how to deal with these people?
How long should I wait to get an offer letter? I did interviews for PwC Corporate Finance. On Feb 14, I got an email saying that I was chosen for the summer internship and that the details will follow shortly. On March 7th, I sent an email to follow up bcs I had not received the details. The assistant responded that the process is underway and it’s within the hands of the HR. Still haven’t heard from them and it’s been over a month. Is it normal? What should I do?

I shared the wrong screen in a meeting with 1 direct report (Director) and 1 of his direct reports (Sr Manager) 😱. I have 2 screens and Zoom chose the one not in front of me and I had no idea. The screen had my to do list on it and number 1 was “send resume to x” (name of recruoter and company was there). About 3 seconds after I shared the Director said “I think you’re sharing your to do list” and I immediately closed it. I have to assume they saw everything. What do I do?

I’m confused. Does duets mean something that I don’t know? What does that have to do with a gift for your neighbors wife?
Thanks for clarifying. Does she also play musical instruments? Or just her husband
I had to read this twice, I thought you were saying your boyfriend played you and got her pregnant. Look up her registry. Or buy a cute outfit
Oh sorry I can how that is confusing 🤦🏻♀️
Have you sleuthed online for their registry? If you can’t find it, baby blankets are always good and you can’t have enough. A gift card to a local restaurant/seamless is always good for new parents (babies get all the gifts anyways)!
Just ask them. Say “We’d like you to get you a gift. Do you have a registry?”
Hi all! Update: got them this, and in a twist, the two older kids loved it ☺️
