I kinda want a dog 🐶 should I adopt one ? Should I wait until this summer / after busy season? I’ll take all and any suggestions
Noticed this weird spot on baby’s back tonight. He is 12 weeks old. Obviously we’ve sent a message to the pediatrician but anyone ever had something like this on their baby before?
Deloitte parents: how long do you have to be with the firm to qualify for parental leave? I’m considering an offer but am currently pregnant.
Hey 🐠! I wanted to share a podcast that I came across this week. It’s targeted towards people who grew up in homes with mental illness. I myself had a mother who was likely Borderline/Bipolar (per a psychiatrist I saw myself - i hadn’t even heard of Borderline at the time). While I have ‘divorced’ my mother, I had a daughter about a year ago my mother has started spinning up again. I went looking for information to validate that I am making the right decision and found this podcast cathartic.
I have a student who did nothing the whole term, but passed the final exam with a 79. Should I pass him?
Seeing the “3% pledge for pay equity” popping up next to agency names here. Interesting that our Global CEO is a woman and don’t see us on that list. We also have the worst parental leave. 🤔
If you have trouble winding down or get anxious try Kava extract. My mother is all about alt medicine and I was skeptical but the stuff works calms you down with cloudiness just very gentle. 10/10
I reached a breaking point today at work and now I'm drinking away my sorrows. Have a list of about 10 things to do over the weekend that will likely take ~6 hours to complete. Can someone adopt me for a few years? I want to not work.
How do you divide your time between your kids? My second is an extra needy and demanding, high spirited kid. My first is laidback and easy going. I always feel like the eldest gets the short end of the stick and never gets enough of my attention even tho she’s always been more attached to me than my husband. She never gets one-on-one time with me as it is since her sister (now 2) is still super glued to my side. Any suggestions for juggling this? Or to ease the mom guilt?
Moms, I am 23 weeks pregnant. Is it ok for me to have canned tuna? I have been craving it but worried tuna has mercury and cans have BPA. Thank you!
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!
McK and BCG 🐟, do you all accrue tenure while you’re on parental leave? If so, how much?
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?
Currently live rent free MCOL in a decent size one bedroom apt approx 780 sq ft. We are due with our first baby in August. We will ultimately need /want a house within the next year and a half. With interest rates set to raise and no end in sight with inflation... Do we buy now or wait it out as long as possible? Giving up free rent ☹️. This is keeping me up at night yall. Hellllp.
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
PwC parental leave benefits?
If your company offers paid parental leave, can you share some insight into your policies or implementation tips? We're thinking of offering it concurrently with any existing paid parental leave at the state level, so the employee is covered 100%.

Anyone have good book recommendations ? Here are some books that I’ve read and enjoyed: -moonwalking with Einstein: Josh foer -most human human: Brian Christianson -alone together: sherry turkle -think again: Adam grant -Jewish comedy: Jeremy dauber Like books with people in academic background or an expert, want to avoid anecdotal books and Malcom Gladwell (nothing against MG-just like books based of studies/experiment) like non-fiction and Jewish history.
