Tips for helping kids stay on task during zoom? Our little class (9 kids) has been doing zoom circle times twice a week but I noticed they are really distracted. Also every meeting a kid leave...
M, 44. After 21 years of marriage, my wife and I signed divorce papers with no contest. We have two adult daughters together, 18 and 21 So no child support, no alimony, and I make $170k at 44. I recently moved out of the marital house into an apartment,m. What should my next steps look like at this point? Do I need counseling?
Considering a position at Amazon (specifically, AWS healthcare division). I have the potential to nearly triple my salary but at the cost of (what I hear is) horrible WLB. Also potentially thinking of having another kid soon.
Should I go for it anyway? Is the WLB at AWS as bad as they say?
How do you deal with a child who will pee on themselves for the attention? I have a student who does this two-three times a week. I have never experienced his before, and not sure what to do.
How have you broke the news to your boss that you’re looking to make a career change and leave the practice? I am the Sr. Paralegal at my firm (7+ years) and work for a solo practitioner in a very busy wage & hour class action practice. We have one other legal assistant and law clerk. I don’t want to burn bridges, but after seeing how he gave the cold shoulder to his paralegal of 10+ years after going on maternity leave and never coming back, I don’t see how I can’t expect the same treatment.
Any partners here that can share how they handled maternity leave? I'm early in my pregnancy (~9 weeks) but starting to feel anxious / unethical about certain work-related things, like new business calls. I keep having the conversations - the outcome of which is clients expecting to have me as their advisor - knowing that I'll be at least mostly unavailable during the fall busy season. Is it unethical to have these calls and not be transparent? (Continued in comments)
Since the start of my career, I have been working in an outsourcing accounting group, mostly doing accounting work for small/mid-size businesses. I am a CPA. At this point in my life, I am thinking of moving to a corporate accounting job. I don’t want to work late hours as we do in public accounting since my wife is pregnant and I want to enjoy this process and have a more work life balance.
What are teachers doing, as a collective, to force the hands of government and society to focus and support change that will minimize these senseless school shootings?
Make no mistake about it, these shootings will continue. Are you aware that since Columbine there have been over 300,000 students victimized in some way my school shootings. And colleagues we too have been traumatized and victimized.
Winter is coming! Are there any outerwear recommendations that grows with the tummy and can be used later with and without the baby?
Hello! Are there any Canadian/European folks out there that have changed jobs while pregnant?
When I applied I didn't know I was pregnant...and now, looks like I'll likely have at least one (if not two🤞🏼) offer soon that I'm really interested in. By the time I start, I'll be 15-16 wks along.
Would like to know people's experience, when they told their employer, reactions, etc. I know legally I am protected but I'm worried about reactions esp. given I want to take my 1 year leave.
Should I max out my HSA or my 401K first? Torn on whether to keep high deductible /HSA plan & it's open enrollment. I'm 40 with chronic, expensive health problems and it only takes 4 months to burn through my $1800 annual deductible on my high deductible health plan. For context - Spouse and I have around 200k in savings and 200k in stocks, plus 80 each in 401k accounts from prior jobs. We have only saved $7k in an ESA for our one child (12 y.o.) and we rent in a HCOL- don't own any real estate.
Planning a baby moon in august, I’ll be 22 weeks. We wanted to go to Scandinavia or Iceland but looking at the news and all these nightmare airport stories has us thinking about road-tripping instead. Anyone travel to Europe recently?
Dads, how much parental leave did you take vs available? Lateraled in January and baby is due December. Firm offers 9 weeks for non primary caregiver for reference. I'd be inclined to "take it all" but a bit nervous about missing a ton of time with increasing economic uncertainty.
Anyone experiencing depression? I did a self assessment, and scored 2.5/5. Extreme fatigue, loss of joy and some level of loss of appetite ( not really experiencing prolonged sadness and trouble sleeping). If you are, are you seeking professional help? I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Had one serious depression episode during week 7, but has been getting better since. This week I feel like I’m getting back into the darkness again though. Is this gonna get better past trim1 or not really?
I’ve been asked to weigh in on how to improve my firms parental leave policy. It’s currently 8 weeks paid for birth parent with an extra week for each year at the firm (up to 12 weeks total) and 2 weeks paid for non-birth parent. I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!
What’s something you were literally unable to do while pregnant? I apparently forgot how to drive. Literally every time I get in my car it’s some kind of issue. Typing this as I wait for my boyfriend to come get me off a curb 😩
First time mom-to-be. How hard is it to take care of a newborn? People tell me it's the hardest time in life ever. Why do I feel so confident that I can prove them wrong. I'm so naive, right? Any advice or tips that worked for you during those times?
I’m seeing a big uptick in industry opportunities and have confirmed that with a few recruiters. Any thoughts if we will continue to see opportunities through next Spring? Debating on leaving now versus leaving in the Spring to take advantage of EYs favorable maternity / paternity leave benefits. Plus there would be a cost of changing insurance and the deductibles restarting this year. Thoughts?
How are Bain’s maternity benefits? What’s the parental leave like? Do you have to have been working there for a certain amount of time to be eligible for benefits?
Five days but whose counting? 😵💫
When did you submit your notice when switching between skilled worker/tier2 visa? Upon the offer? CoS? Application? Visa decision? Just disappear?

Is it pathetic to feel burnt out after only 8 months at a new firm. Been practicing 9 years. Am in the home stretch to partner and just DGAF anymore. 😩
I work with a partner who will call me, and if I don’t answer, he will hang up and immediately call me a second time. For a non-urgent matter. This is bizarre, right? It bothers me every time.
smart is the new gangsta

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.

I have an offer from another company which is roughly $24k more than what I am currently making. Would it be worth sacrificing my remote position and switch to a hybrid role? It will also require relocation but I already have a house and am hesitant to sell and buy another one with these current mortgage rates. I was able to refinance a year ago for around 3%

NYC: The City Council introduces a broad virus relief package that includes tenant protections barring marshals and sheriffs from collecting debts or evicting residential or commercial tenants
Need thoughts and opinions on a potential moving I’m thinking about. Due to COVID-19, I’m currently living at home with parents in a suburb. I’ve always intended to move to NYC in August/September but am wondering if I should rethink this decision. A couple specific questions:
- Is rent in NYC cheaper due to COVID?
- For people in city, have residents still been engaging in social life (e.g., apartment hangouts, Central Park)? What’s the dating scene like?
