[ - ] Does anyone tutor their own kids? I don't see the point paying someone $80 per hour to tutor a 2nd grader. It's so simple for me to help my child with her homework which is pretty simple right now. Does a tutor offer something extra that I can't? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

A tutor offers you the opportunity to feel like you're better than the other parents bc you are more invested- literally- in your DC's education. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am 13 weeks pregnant with my first DC. I have been at my company for three years and was told in February's annual review that I would be working toward promotion in February 2016. Since then I have had very positive feedback from different people. My boss changed a few months after my performance review but part of the handover was a discussion of my being on promotion track. When I tell my boss on Monday, I think I will say 'I have some news. I am pregnant - due in March. I am still very much working hard toward my February promotion.' What do you think?
