[ - ] Why do you think that so many parents think its absolutely critical for them to raise their kids directly? I mean of course you need to have a connection with your kids, you need to be around and be very close to them, and spend lots of unstructured time with them, but objectively doesn't it seem likely that the right older, more experienced person who has had a career dealing with kids, or someone who has already raised kids and been through it, would be better at raising them? It's like saying you're going to build your own house without any help because you think it's important for you to be able to say that you drove every nail and hung every light, when there are experienced people around who will do it better. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I mean, I can see where you're going with this, because frankly I wouldn't make a very good SAHM. But I think part of parenting is "molding them in your image," so that they grow up with the things you think are important. So while I agree with you that certain women are better NOT being the 24x7 caregivers, I disagree with the premise that someone else would be equal to - or raise your kids better - than you would because the whole idea is that YOU want to raise your kids a certain way.

[ - ] SIL - when we first met, she was really cold to me. Basically ignored that I existed, but loves DH. She is Jewish and I'm not, and she was very resentful of this. Made a few comments about it that I've never forgotten, like once, after she met my (Catholic) grandmother, she muttered to DH "let's go and cleanse ourself of all this Christianity" He maintains that she was joking. She was also friends with his ex, and really smug about it, like took pleasure in making me feel awkward. Now, six years later, she's much nicer. She emails and buys me gifts and has made it clear she liked me. But I still can't forget how she treated me at the beginning and want to keep her at an arms length.

Highly unpopular opinion here given this site's demographics but: I have BTDT. A LOT of Jewish women are nasty, cruel, vindictive and mean as hell to gentile women who marry Jewish guys. This is a major taboo subject for them because they're extremely image-conscious and don't ever like to acknowledge that they are capable of meanness. So don't ever expect any apology from her because she's going to be extremely defensive. Your DH is sadly typical of many Jewish guys who will marry/date gentile women but will never, ever take a stand against their harsh relatives and support their wife. These guys usually want to have it both ways. Have sex with a shiksa but also never anger their female relatives. Keep SIL at arm's length. The Holocaust doesn't give her a license to be an asshole to her brother's gentile wife. She showed you her true petty nature at the start. [ Reply | More ]

OP here: I completely agree with this. Completely. Once, SIL had returned from a trip to Paris and was showing us pictures of the trip on her iPad. She had visited the Louvre and had a picture of herself simulating puking (finger down throat) in front of an ancient painting depicting some biblical scene. Imagine if I had been caught doing that in front of a Jewish piece of art? And yes, DH is typical Jewish guy.. too nice and wants it both ways. Interestingly, SIL eventually married non-Jew, so I think that's when she became a bit nicer to me, but of course he's doing everything her way (abandoning his upbringing) while I go full force on Christmas.

"Interestingly, SIL eventually married non-Jew, so I think that's when she became a bit nicer to me"...So her niceness to you is totally fake. It comes from a place of sheepishness of realizing that gentiles are not totally bad after all. And her cruelty to you was purely based on ethnic/religious reasons. Screw that. This is not a good person. She sounds like a nut who has a lot of hangups over religion and no manners. It's not okay to simulate puking at the Louvre. If she hates religion so much, she shouldn't visit art museums. And sorry to say, your DH sounds like a total enabler. A lot of guys from Jewish families end up being enablers of their female relatives' pathologies because they don't ever stand up to them. [ Reply | More ]

I wouldn't call this a "random slight." I had a similar experience and anti-christian comments (even so-called lighthearted jokes) can sting very badly. That said, I think that a lot of jewish people who live in a world that is still full of anti-semitism just don't realize that how mean and hurtful these comments are. As someone who gave up my tradition to embrace my husband's, I still respect my parents' Christian beliefs and traditions--it is important for your SIL to respect where you came from. I think it sounds like she is basically a nice person who likes you, I think you should move forward--either be her friend or not--but there is no need to bring up her bad behavior. This is likely to just make her defensive and rude again. So I'd let it go. [ Reply | More ]

I had a similar experience with my SIL. When DH and I were first together I think it was really hard for her, she used to be his go to person for everything and as he started to naturally turn to me she got jealous and made some stupid petty comments. Eventually, we became friendlier and I think after the adjustment period she really made an effort and I appreciated that. Today we have a great relationship and are actually really friends. DH and I are together 12 years and it probably took me 4 of those years to like her and another 4 years to really befriend her. If she is giving you an olive branch, take it. Its immature and petty to hold a grudge. Fake it till you make it. fwiw, she and I are both Jewish, I don't think religion is the pertinent issue. Its that DH's focus turns to his own wife and away from his sister and mother. Its natural and normal but still hard. [ Reply | More ]

It's "racist" because every video that has come out trying to show what it's like to be catcalled elicits claims that the women purposely "walk through minority areas" or that they surreptitiously "edit out all of the white men that catcall". It seems fairly incontrovertible to me that there is a certain demographic of men who yell disgusting things on the street and that demographic rarely includes white men in suits. There are many, many disgusting things white men in suits do to objectify women, but catcalling is rarely one of them. However, in this overly-PC day and age, we cannot talk about these things.

op: the term is thrown around a lot and even friends and parents at my other kids school say it when referring to some of the girls. Just curious what it is these girls have that makes them right for Brearley. [ Reply | More ]

What grade are you applying? Did it feel really intense. I wonder if it would eventually be too much for my DD although I think she could definitely handle it in the lower school (applying for K) [ Reply | More ]

rather not specify grade, but it's for MS/HS. i think the teaching is at a VERY high level, and the girls work hard, are creative, and push boundaries, i.e., they are not cookie-cutter girls. we saw some nose rings, ear lobe rings, pink hair, etc., we we haven't seen at the other SS schools. i can't say my dd is a "B girl" (whatever that may be), but we were impressed.

Stop it. They say there is no ONE Brearley girl. That said, there is a video about this right on their site, under videos. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I was in Paris when I was 9 and London when I was 11. In my early 20's I preferred fun beach vacations with my friends and haven't had an opportunity to travel since dd was born 3 years ago. [ Reply | More ]

Y'know, many people can't afford trips overseas. I haven't been abroad for almost 20 years. With all your foreign travel, you sound small-minded and loathsome. I have more respect for the folks that enjoy the hell out of weekend adventures over your passport full of stamps. [ Reply | More ]

Neither because I go to both all the time for work, but given your situation, Paris. Don't go during the winter. It's gray and depressing. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I accepted a job offer at a law firm 2 weeks ago starting on December 8th - last night I received a call from the Events/Marketing Company offering me a position which exceeds my expectations at the law firm. How do I decline the offer after accepting it - do I call the recruiter or go directly to to the HR person at the law firm who hired me? Do I call or put it in writing? I feel bad but need to do what is best for me. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
