Letters from a Stoic - Seneca Man's Search for Meaning - Viktor Frankl Blood Done Sign My Name - Timothy Tyson Tribe - Sebastian Junger ^ there are many, many more. These, however, are an incredibly valuable core set that anyone in America should read. They are powerful explorations of the topics of practical wisdom, race, meaning, suffering, and belonging. All made a tremendous impact on me.

Dads with older children: while raising your children, did your children prefer their moms over you? I know some will prefer dads over moms, but I assume majority of children out there will prefer their moms over dads… I have one child and it kinda hurts to see my child always preferring the mom over me. I know I shouldn’t feel this way, but I just do. How did you cope with such issue raising your children?

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership

Our 5 month old started daycare about 5 weeks ago. We’ve already had to keep her home for 2.5 of those 5 weeks due to catching various illnesses (croup, rsv, brinchiolitis, etc).

Cost aside, is this feasible / worthwhile to go thru the effort / finding the right fit, only for 4 months?
