"Kids today" amirite??

The US has at-will employment. Employers can fire employees with similarly short notice and low rationale. If employers are frustrated, offer two-way binding contracts versus an unenforceable onboarding document.

Not saying it's proper behavior, and as a department head I'd be frustrated too, but the pendulum has swung towards labor.

I'll take this over the unemployment lines of '07-09.

Another elder millennial here. On a personal level this would be hugely disappointing and downright rude to have someone on my team do this. But on a macro level... the way capitalism and big business has gone, where you can be fired without notice at any moment and are expected to have total loyalty to companies when they almost never return the favor....welp... I also kinda get it. To be clear, not condoning it.

Any book recommendations for parenting an extremely stubborn child? My 4.5 yo middle is giving us such a hard time lately. It varies what sets him off, but one example is: I ask him and big sis to get pajamas on before movie night. Often they come out ready 2 min later but sometimes randomly he’ll say he can’t do it, demand my help, and (when I gently insist he needs to try first) will get so upset that it essentially ruins his evening. he’s otherwise kind, thoughtful, smart, and loving.
