I got married last year, my wife is working and i have a single parent, who is a government servant herself. Seeing a lot of unfortunate scenarios around makes me scared at times and i am giving thoughts to such back-up options these days
I have a counselor that always calls a meeting when a kid complains. She doesn’t take time to talk to me about it, and I’m always in meetings. The kids are empowered here.
I recently had my first baby and I’m trying to be as practical as possible, I did not get a bunch of baby stuff I just got the essentials, I think they sell you too much unnecessary things. I do appreciate people showing affection with gifts but feel kids now a day are over gifted. Would it be taken wrong if I suggest that for birthdays and Christmas instead of toys people deposit whatever they were going to spend in my baby’s 529 account?
I have an OL from LTI with a CTC-20 Lpa..As my mother had brain surgery, i need to be with her. i have asked HR to provide WFH. Does LTI support in these kinds of cases?? I have also asked HR to set up a call with the Project Manager.
Comments pls ..
I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.
Anyone work in tax at a big four and has flexible hour arrangement? I would like to have my first child soon and I wanna know if flexible hour arrangement is a feasible option.
I can’t imagine I am posting this but want to hear options on how to make it work. I currently live in the US and I don’t have parents. I have a sister who is in a situation that can’t help me much . I married my husband after 5y together- have a toddler and 7 mon pregnant. He has been abusive for the last few months and since last few days calling me bitch in front of my toddler. Today he asked my toddler to choose either him or me and of course my toddler loves him and said only dad. Contd..
Moms, my baby is 6 days old and all day today all he did was sleep and eat and go back go sleep right away. While this is great cause I get to relax, I am worried he may be sick or something and thats why he is falling back to sleep again and again? Any guidance will be great! FTM here
Why do strollers not have clearly marked open and close buttons? Sometimes I feel like these products were designed by men whose closest interaction to child rearing is keeping artificial plants.
Aging parents - any book recommendations to help me learn about supporting and helping a parent cope with cognitive decline, dementia, going to assisted living, aging anxiety, and related issues, etc?
I'm an adult child of alcoholism/dysfunction (ACoA) and often want to put "disabled" on my job applications.
Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget.
Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown.
Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call.
He settled down and adjusted his tone.
Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.
Any recommendation of travel cribs? My one year old is going with my wife and I on a trip in a couple months. Staying in a AirBnB and need a place for the kid to sleep
Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?
I am a Product Owner with 6 yoe and a mother of newly born. My current package is 12lpa and average 11-12 hrs working with work from office for 7-8 hrs, remaining calls/work from home. In such scenario taking care of the baby has become very challenging.
I have been considering job switch for a while but have lots of doubt in my mind. Will a new mother be hired? Working 12 hrs will only ensure good package? If i insist on work life balance, will it affect the package? Thoughts plz
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
Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

I got an offer from EY GDS, but in the letter, it says appointment letter. Is it normal for EY GDS to send the offer letter titled 'appointment letter'?

My almost 3 year old loves his crib. It’s pretty a apparent that it makes him feel safe at night. I stupidly did not buy a crib that coverts to a toddler bed and he has no interest in sleeping in his big boy bed. We also need to potty train him.. I know he will continue to wear a diaper at night but I dont like forcing potty all day then Trapped in a cage at night. Am I over thinking this? Is he ok I’m the crib till he’s ready or any tips to make the transition smoother?

Hi moms! I’m a FTM approaching my last trimester of pregnancy and trying to determine an appropriate working model for the last few months. I’ve been working really long days (14-16hrs, limited breaks) and am feeling exhausted. I probably work 2-5hrs on the weekend. Is this normal? What’s appropriate heading into the “home stretch”, especially thinking about the last 2mos? I don’t expect a free ride, but this feels impossible to keep up.

Moms, we have been invited to a social gathering this Saturday at 6 PM. It’s my husbands side of the family, and while I am okay going but I do think it’s wise to leave in an hour so that we can come back (around 45 mins ride back) and do bedtime. My 13 mo goes to sleep at 7:30 PM and we have been diligently pulling his bedtime to 6:30 PM over this week for daylight savings. Am I wrong in my approach here? How do you approach evening gatherings? My son gets really irritated when overtired cont

My husband is suffering from depression and OCD and has kind of given up on his career, working out, grooming himself, engaging with society and friends. He’s an amazing father but spends his day playing with our baby and playing video games. His depression has become a third person in our relationship and it’s destroying our marriage. He doesn’t think anything is wrong and refuses to get individual therapy or go to couples counseling. What can I do? Should I reach out to his fam?I’m miserable.
Taking some time off over the next few weeks and decided to start potty training my two year old. Any tips/tricks that have worked for any moms on here? TIA! :)
New to Fishbowl?

I did at 32 weeks at doctor's recommendation. Some fish here have gone up to 34. Others stopped earlier because of complications. Biggest thing for me was proactively letting my client know the specific time I would stop being onsite so they could plan it.

Great thank you 🐠 🐟. I’m at 33 weeks and my doctor advised me to stop traveling. I actually enjoy traveling but don’t want to risk baby’s health. Thank you for your inputs!
I’ll be stopping next week at 36 weeks go with what your doctor advises you to do.
At 31 weeks stopped 4 days per week. Travelled 1 day per week until 36 weeks. Stopped working at 38 weeks.
32 weeks, per doc's rec, but I was very ready to wfh and keep my feet propped up!
