My partner feels at unease around my parents. She thinks that my mother doesn’t like her (she adores her) and feels like she doesn’t fit in. I don’t see what she is seeing but I also want to support her. How can I ease her anxiety around my family and make her feel more welcomed ?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

I’m working on an oncology Rx launch. US is projected to account for 80% of sales and US patients are paying almost 3x-5x the European price! Ugh, the rest of the world gets all the benefits of innovation and US citizens get shafted with the cost. Just wanted to vent.

Does anyone know how insurance work when you leave a company? Say I leave on day X, does my insurance ends on day X as well or it will last til the end of the two week period after my last paycheck (because insurance premium is still held from paycheck)? And does medical insurance reimburse / cover based on the date of treatment or the date of they processing the claim? Thank you so much!
Snoo moms, does your little one also nap in the snoo during the day? Or do they nap in a pack n play etc. Also, do you put them in the snoo once they have fallen asleep (in your arms while feeding etc) or can one put their fussy baby in the snoo for it to work its magic?

I am SO SICK of junior men not playing ball because I’m a woman. If I’m tough, I’m too tough. I’m nice, I’m emotional. I care too much, but I’m difficult. Can we ever win this? Tired of the cranky, toxic behavior… ironically from people I’m watching out for and taking care of. What gives???
I need advice, has anyone been in a similar sit? Met a guy on Bumble in March. He had gotten out of a 4 year relationship in December. We dated for 2 ish weeks, on date 3 we made out and touched (no sex but we both came). After the date he tells me he needs time to himself, his mind is all over the place. We’re May and he reached back out (to congratulate me for my sisters baby). Said he’s in a much better place mentally, wants to meet up. CONTd in comments

What is the best objective source for determining whether to get the COVID 19 vaccine? Looking for sources and raw data and documentaries. I’m not looking for opinions I am looking for references to a variety of medical authorities. I have masked up this whole time but admittedly have not done any research other than what I heard in the news.
