Any moms struggling with teens during virtual learning? My son started high school this year and is doing awful when he has always done well. From straight As to Cs. I’ve always trusted him to take care of his own schooling but feel like I am failing as a parent. I’m a single mom so don’t have backup to be on his case and manage multiple trials at a time. What is helping you and your kids cope?
I lived abroad (for 10+ years), but now had to be home given an unfortunate family emergency. It’s been one week and I cant believe the amount of negativity, rudeness, accusation, yelling, anger around me on a daily basis. Ive had this toxic family atmosphere growing up driven by behaviours of my narcissistic mother, orbiting negativity around my dad, my brothers, and I. My mother esp. complained about me all the time even during this unfortunate family event - to convey that..
I am currently on maternity leave with an infant. Covid is making me very anxious about hiring a nanny or day care, when I need to return to work. How are you all, especially those with babies managing if both you and your spouse are working full time? Please share your experiences and suggestions
How to adopt “the company doesn’t care about me” mentality? I’ve been trying to reframe work in an attempt to reduce my stress and workaholic tendencies. People always say “at the end of the day, it’s just a job and the company doesn’t care about you” yadda yadda but to me, the pressure and stress comes from caring about my manager’s, leadership’s, and colleagues opinions. It seems like a silly question to ask, but how do I stop slaving away to make them happy? It’s wearing me down.
Oh god, pregnant and just scared myself silly reading about listeria. Should I throw out all my Thanksgiving leftovers, now that it's past 4 days? Luckily it's not that much (cont)

Money thread - in chicago. Want to get a nice house in the suburbs (budget is around 800k). One kid is 3 years old. Plan on second. Plan to put kids in public school and then private school for high school and likely fully find kids’ college. How much annual household income would be able to afford this? I’m looking at nice suburbs here. Looks like 800k is entry price and most household has a stay at home wife. Why people are so rich?

I posted here several months ago about this topic, and you all were incredibly helpful, so I’m posting again. My sister just had her second miscarriage in under a year. She’s been trying to have a baby for close to 4 years now. How can I show her love during this time? She lives in a different state. Last time I sent them flowers and some of their favorite snacks. I’m not sure what to do now. Do I send something? Write a note? Would love to hear from those who have experienced something similar
