Okay what’s up with the child tax credit? Moving it to 3,600/child under 5? And give people monthly payments of the credit? Is this really true? So if I have 2 kids under 5, I get a check from the IRS Monthly of $600?
I love my baby like she's an actual human but she's gotten very big and strong. Pulling has become a huge issue. Yesterday she pulled my wife over. I bought a choke collar which I don't want to use but I feel I have no choice. Any thoughts?
Trying to buy a house right now is destroying my mental health. We’ve been renting for 4 years trying to get careers established and save up, have been trying to buy for the last year and now we are completely priced out. Kid is starting school soon and we need a yard and proper home zoned for the right school. Feeling like a complete failure for being parents in our mid 30’s and still not having a real home like every other person we know. I see no end in sight to this. Very dejected.

Having my 1st baby and trying to figure out invites for the baby shower and could use input. My SIL /MIL won’t host a family shower for me. My mom thinks it’s tacky for her to host anything. My friend is hosting a shower & told me to invite anyone I want. I’d like to invite family on both sides. I don’t want my friend to be stuck with the bill, so my hubby said he’d pay for it; my mom freaked out and said it’s like I’m hosting one for myself. She wants to not invite any family now. Thoughts?
With everything going on in the world (COVID / BLM / Yemen / Human Rights Issues) I've started feeling really guilty lately. I came to the UK when I was a child for a better life and I've been incredibly lucky to have the life I have (mortgage free / stable job etc.) at such a young age but I have this pit in my stomach where I always feel guilty that doesn't seem to go away. I give to charity, volunteer and try to be a good person. Does anyone else feel the same, how do you deal with it?

I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time. I did it because I got mad other people can finish the level so easily but I cant seem to. I never feel good enough, and I think it stems from my father for 18 years telling me I am never good enough. Now I never know if I see myself as unworthy because its true or im conditioned to believe it.
Fish Fam - I am a 25 yo (M) planning to come to the US (from India) on a B1 to support my sis who is having a baby. Do you foresee any issues at PoE? Do I need to bring any proofs?
