All snark aside - can you explain why you need a full time nanny? Do you leave the house all day or are you home with her? How do your kids act when both of you are there? Even when we have a sitter, which is rare, mostly because we're just too lazy to go out, I leave the minute they arrive or kids seem to be confused who they're "reporting" to. [ Reply | More ]

NP (and SAHM): I could see if it you have three or more kids who are close in age--it helps the younger ones maintain a regular schedule and not spend their lives getting hauled around to their older sibling's activities.

[ - ] Son is 3 years old - no dev disorder, but reserved and shy. He does not say hello back when people (adults OR kids) say hi or good morning directly to him. I have just started to explain that it makes people feel good to respond. I do not label, force him to speak, things like that that I know are bad. But I do think he's old enough to at least know more about the impact of this behavior. What do you think? Drop it after mentioning it a couple times, or keep talking about it after he ignores someone in front of me. I obviously model friendly behavior in front of him. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think the view in the US on this topic is very different to other countries. I would say that it is fine, he will work up to it eventually and gain some confidence and that forcing him now is going to backfire. My oldest was exactly like that and although she is still extremely shy at 8, she has over the years learned to understand when she needs to push herself outside her comfort zone to be polite. No-one at home ever raised it as an issue. However my youngest is now 3 and exactly the same (with a middle child who would say Hi to anyone from the time he could make a sound) and I was told the other day that I need to get him assessed by a psychologist!

I think it's totally normal. Just model the behavior. When you see him doing something you like, compliment him later. "I noticed you gave Mrs. Smith a big smile when you saw her in the elevator.

My ds was so shy at that age. He wasn't being rude -- he genuinely had trouble with strangers (or adults I knew but he didn't) paying attention to him and asking him questions. It's funny because ds is a teen now and is not shy at all anymore. Maybe it's good I didn't force it. I agree, just model good behavior, but at that age it really can be difficult and not being "bad". [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] How do I get into a better mindset when dealing with in-laws? It’s just my MIL and BIL. FIL passed away a few years ago. BIL lives with his mother, huge loser, zero social skills, package delivery person and just sits around drinking beer after beer, burping, and watching tv when they come to visit. MIL complains about her life, yet does nothing proactive ever. They have the worst table manners too, love chain restaurants and Kevin James movies. Think Guy Fieri is the height of cuisine. Luckily, they live a 2-hour plane ride away and visit five times a year, but it’s so hard to pretend to enjoy their company. DH loves his family too and feels sorry for his mom being a widow. She has also mentioned them moving to our town too, yikes! She is a generous grandma, I will give her that.

[ - ] UB executives or near execs, help me understand. Just got the resume of person hired to head a department. Department is diverse, think marketing/communications/external relations for a large nonprofit. Resume shows person has less than 12 years work experience and narrowly in only one of these 3 buckets. Absolutely no experience in any of the other buckets. I am primarily in 2 of the other buckets with almost no experience in the area the new hire excels in. Are my days numbered? Would you envision there will be restructuring and perhaps I might be able to position myself as head of the buckets s/he has no experience in? Also -- just SMH. What was our exec thinking with this hire? Seems either he doesn't know or doesn't care about 80% of the work the dept does. Will turn this dept completely upside down. I suppose that was the goal, but the demands for the other work is very strong from all constituencies within the organization, so seems shortsighted/ignorant to disregard that. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The after school programs are actually better at BSP because they are run by the school and not Manhattan Youth.

I have such a different view of these schools the second time around. I thought Baruch AP was the bottom of the barrel the first time (and ranked it last), but now, I think it is better academically than a few of the middle level schools like 289, SoF, LMC and starting this year, Spruce 397.

Baruch is an excellent school. The SP program is as good as any top ms in D2 and I would agree that the AP program is as good or better than the schools you mention. [ Reply | More ]

I would rank Baruch SP second because 1) it's a better program and 2) they have more many more seats to fill than 289 so your chances of getting it if you rank it second are much better. Baruch SP only filled half its seats with first-choice dcs, whereas more dcs ranked 289 first than there were seats available. I agree with other poster that 3/4 scores are kind of a dime a dozen so you need to be careful with what you rank second. That said, Baruch is much more structured than Salk. [ Reply | More ]

I don't mind tipping when it comes to certain services (restaurants; movers; building superintendent; etc.). I was a little taken back, however, when tip jars started showing up at the check out counter of my grocery store. Apparently this is for bagging. I'm not used to that and normally I pay with my debit card. It seems awkward trying to find change or a dollar to put in the bagging tip jar. First world problem, I know. [ Reply | More ]

You're not allowed to mention that. If you do, people will say that she edited out the white men, or say "Well, apparently it's only harassing if you don't think the guys are attractive. So she's saying she doesn't find black or Hispanic men attractive, so she's racist". [ Reply | More ]

^^ This is exactly why you can't bring it up. All of the sudden, it's racist, you're racist, the girl is racist. The only people who aren't in the wrong are the men harassing women in the street. [ Reply | More ]

It's pretty stupid to bring up race in this situation because she was walking in a predominantly ethnic neighborhood. I guess she was too fat for Manhattan. Notice she has some nice curves on her, and what races love curvy women? Black and hispanic. [ Reply | More ]

Yep. I saw a young AA guy (maybe 20) totally check out one of those old ladies with the hot bods on UES the other day. She was at least 65 but wearing a very short skirt (maybe her knees had been done; she looked good). He didn't see her from the front. [ Reply | More ]
