Doug reeves is saying no input should still be equal to a passing grade.....or hey kids you don’t have to do any assignments although if yiu pass the test you are guaranteed a passing grade. Now, this may work for a college level class although in high school we should be teaching kids good work ethic and morales... this grading system is the opp of that. Creates a shortcut kind of kid... whose going to overlook crucial components in identifying problems.
I’m just over 16 weeks pregnant and have a tendency to sleep on my back. I know I’m not supposed to at this stage but I don’t know how to stop myself from doing it. I’ll start on my side when I go to sleep but then I wake up and I’m on my back. Anyone else had this issue or have creative solutions?
I'm a US citizen living abroad I applied almost 11 months ago for my spouse. Married for years, kid. I wait and wait. It seems this will take 2 years, maybe more. I feel trapped. On one side the US system demands I work and domicile in US, the other side says families should be prioritized to stay together. My spouse has had enough of the process. I feel trapped abroad and locked in a dysfunctional system. We're just in limbo, it's depressing
Hey anyone at MBB willing to vet a resume of a kid I know? If you think he’s competitive, perhaps to then refer him?
I’m currently 20 weeks pregnant, comfortable at my job, but testing the waters with another company who is interested in recruiting me. I want to be transparent - I’m not ready to jump until after I have this baby, but I want to keep communication going and have them stay open to me later on. How to best approach?
Not sure if I should go to Quora or another bowl for the proper forum but I’ll start here. I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form (cont…)
With my first kid, I used a rock n play (during the day when supervised.) I’m due in Sept with #2 and obv won’t be using one this time around. I’d love to think I don’t need anything special and...
To my Deloitte mom on here: what happens to your utilization when you go on maternity leave? I notice since there was a chance with the calendar year in the firm, my utilization has gone down a bit compared to a last year, which it was a few weeks ago... I’ll be on LoA in 5 weeks, maybe I can call and ask but wanted to ask here first. Also, do you have to login every week to complete DTE and MySource? TIA!
How many of you corporate America moms looooove your jobs vs view them as a necessity to fund what you like and enjoy? Heading back to work after maternity-2 and can’t seem to get myself excited about it. I love having a career, accomplishments, financial independence, ability to afford a nice lifestyle, plus I would make the worst housewife. But daily grind, dealing with crazy personalities and general pointlessness of my line of work (corporate tax consulting) is filling me with dread. Welp!

Biglaw single parents? I’m a recently single parent. My ex is (almost) completely out of the picture now. Any other biglaw single parents with tips or tricks to making this work on my own?
My in-laws are the worst. The list of micro aggressions are too much to list, but the most recent transgression occurred yesterday. I recently had a baby and I now use shape wear to feel more confident and it looks good. I think a certain auntie noticed and made a beeline to tell the family. I overheard someone say I knew she couldn’t look that good that soon 🙄. I wish I could distance myself but I have two kids so it makes it more challenging. My husband is also close to them. For added contex
I’ve been reading over Deloitte’s Maternity policy. Do we have to take short term disability 1st before we start using the Family Leave. I’m just trying to understand if leave is 16 or 22 weeks total.
Any good book recommendations for older babies approaching one year mark? I enjoyed baby 411 is toddler 411 equally helpful?

What to do when you’ve asked to roll off of a project months ago but engagement leadership just keep giving you more and more responsibility and reeling in deeper.

I don’t think this is a performance issue, because I was agile promoted in May and received SI rating. I’m so overwhelmed, burnt, and just feel stuck on this project.
