Can anyone opine on NY 529 plans? Have one kid and debating if it is beneficial. I like the tax benefits it provides but not sure if the advantages go away if I end up relocating outside US after 4-5 years, or if my kid decides to not study in US or NY in future. Any opinions would be really helpful.
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
I have a child who has been identified as a selective mute. Anyone have experience with this?
One of my biggest pet peeves is when I see people referring to their kids as 30 months or 36 months. No, you're kid is 2.5 or 3. What are some of your biggest pet peeves?

On maternity leave but am realizing I need to move home to be closer with family. What happens if I quit Deloitte despite owing 30 days upon return? What is the penalty?
What are your best tips when letting an expecting parent know we will not be revising the parental leave policy for them (but we understand they think it’s not good enough)
Hanging out with my parents last night, they reminded me of how as a kid/young teenager if I wanted them to let me do something I would make a deck for them. I'd totally forgotten about this.
Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?

How do you develop healthy financial boundaries with parents? My mother made a lot of sacrifices for myself and my sister growing up but she’s starting to feel like a burden. She’s just refused to go for more in life mostly because she’s been in a financially, emotionally and on one rare occasion, physically abusive relationship. It’s not that I don’t want to help her but she’s getting older and I’m trying to save for possible medical expenses. I have an account dedicated to that which — cont’d
Hey PwC time to step up your parental leave...
I washed and folded the baby’s laundry, washed the bottles, took out garbage and konmari’ed half of my closet... all while hubby napped after dinner. Now I’m so annoyed I married a lazy man child 😪😤

Question about credit age and credit scores. If I call up Amex and tell them to open a new credit card and transfer the credit from another card to this new credit line (and cancel the old credit card but keep the old credit line on my new credit card). Would the average age of open credit decrease as a result of both opening a credit card AND losing the credit card I had opened? Or would the age if the second credit card be transferred over.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Interesting interview questions from Big 4?
Advisory Managers that left EY for another big 4…when you gave your 2 weeks notice (or 4 weeks), were you let go effective immediately or did they allow you to continue to work despite the fact you were going to a competitor?
10/2020: I got laid off due to COVID. 10/2020 to 05/2021: I put over a hundred job apps for industry roles. I got multiple interviews and many unsuccessful final rounds. 06/2021:I am happy to share that I’ve received an offer for a 6 figures role in IA which is a 66% bump from my previous role!If you got laid off or not and you’re still looking for a better opportunity, don’t give up because believing is achieving!
