How do you overcome the anxiety when a parent messages you angrily? I sent out letters to parents of kids who had a D or an F and offered some suggestions and this parent took it as me telling her what to do and insulting her.
Been talking to a startup. Has pretty decent seed funding from a much larger real estate "parent" company and is seeking series A. Current offer is falls short, any advice for negotiating?

Favorite maternity brands?
Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
About sixth months post partum and I am so unbelievably tired all the time. Baby sleeps through the night yet somehow I am exhausted to the point of lying in bed all weekend while...
I’m applying for an industry job and the company has no parental leave benefits whatsoever. Even FMLA is just unpaid 12 weeks and require 1 yr of service. HR rep literally said “my kid is 18, I don’t
Is it normal for pregnancy symptoms to fluctuate so much day by day? Some days I don’t feel pregnant at all and other days I can barely stay awake and am fighting mild to moderate nausea and other discomforts. I wish I could enjoy the symptom free days but they just make me so anxious. Was going to post this to the fertility bowl but most posts there are re: struggling with fertility and getting pregnant & I didn’t want to be insensitive. Hope it’s okay I’m posting here, just want some peace of
Parent partners - how do you get help for your children while being able to take care of your business? Au pairs? Nannys? Family? Wife is pregnant with our first and trying to formulate a support plan so I don't fall too far behind professionally...
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
14 weeks pregnant here with a 4 year old. I’m so exhausted all the time. I do workout (typically on lunch breaks) and eat fairly healthy. Any tips or tricks on how to keep energy levels up?
What time do you moms wake up on weekends? Having major guilt about not being up before my son getting stuff done. (Single parent)
Is there an industry community for agency mothers to connect? Curious to hear what resources you use & communities you‘re part of. Or does your agency have their own mother groups to support you?
Family planning and thinking about jumping for a local company. Only thing I'm afraid to lose is D's great parental leave. Was it really that impactful for you all?
I need sanity check please. i am 6m pregnant with twins, have a history of miscarriages&specialists urged us to be extremely careful since covid19 can lead to stillbirth. My SO is staying with his parents this week to help with renovation. We agreed they'd follow social distancing rules while SO is living there, but he just told me his parents are spending hours with their friends in closed spaces wearing no masks!Now he has to stay 5 days longer and test prior to coming home. Right to be angry?
Ladies, I have to go to a baby shower this weekend and I’ve never been to one before. I already ordered a gift from the registry, do I need to take anything with me? Am I expected to Contribute...
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
Im a third year associate and I’m frequently asked to give presentations (on new case law, legislation, ect.) during a weekly meeting for my section. There’s a first year associate and a law clerk in my section who are never asked to present. Should I push back on this? Would it look bad if I delegate some of the work to the others? I spend a lot of non billable time prepping for these presentations...it seems unfair that I’m the only one who has to do them.
Anyone go through intense anxiety (shaking legs, sweaty palms)? I’ve been facing that for two years and feel intense pressure of smallest of tasks and lack of self worth about not getting a promotion
Question for you all, does anyone know why Monday morning flights are never late... yet.... Thursday night traffic makes me late regardless of city (nyc, ord, etc.) every week for the past few mos?
My house got egged and tped over the weekend. I took it upon myself to reach out to the parents and let them know I've already called the cops but wanted to reach out to you first before the cop shows up on your door. 1 set of parents immediately shifted blame to me and bashed me as a teacher and told me they think I have it out for their son and didn't address the situation at hand. How can I move forward with this situation?
Anyone go from audit at B4 to a non-audit role at a young, growing company and can offer some advice on finding roles/selling yourself for the position?
For those who’ve taken the Big 4 > M7 MBA path, did you need to differentiate how your experience at B4 was superior to that of your peers? Or is just surviving a few years with an average rating ok?
About to enter my first engagement next week, any tips/advice to really kill it? It’s a fairly large team and project so I want to find ways to really distinguish myself and stand out!

Need some advice. I take home roughly 4k/month after taxes and IRA contributions (6% 401k and 3% Roth). My rent is around 900 and I usually spend 300-400 on my credit card. Cont...
It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career. Things like self-promotion to the right people, being highly confident in my abilities (rather than focusing on risks and mitigations), and just naturally walking into every room like I belong. I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?

Hi All, single female with endometriosis here. The last few months have been really trying for me, for many obvious reasons and some personal. But wanted to share that this morning my doctors office received the authorization approval from AETNA to use the egg freezing benefit. I cried all morning as this isn’t something I’d normally be able to afford on my own. Never give up hope even during the most difficult moments. ❤️
