Spell out the rules very explicitly. Teach her in detail how to do things and why they need to be done that way. TRAIN her. Pay her well and it should work. If not, then she wasn't the right girl for you [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] S/O: crazy how "meeeee meeee meeee myyyy familyyyy" many of the posters in the OP about the post-leave coworkers were. Perfect illustration that UMC Moms are really selfish people who try to pawn off their self-absorption as selflessness, because, hey: "my kids! They aren't me, so me putting them ahead of everyone else on earth is SELFLESS! God I am so selfless!!!" Meanwhile people who have very close family members with serious health issues are lucky to get a couple of weeks of and would never be able to take 5 months off. Don't get me wrong: more power to you if that's what you want to do, and you understand the consequences. But don't act like it's some basic human right. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It always seems to be the self-absorbed ones who do this. They think everything about them and their newborns is so different than the rest of us. I work in law and fully support people taking the standard leave for their firm, but seems a lot of people who don't contribute much are the ones who take extra leave. [ Reply | More ]

NP. I know a few people who took extra time and came back part time and nobody seemed to care. I took the standard leave with my first because I was junior, took an extra 3.5m with my second more senior and nobody seemed to care and they seemed happy to take over my work. If people were bitter I honestly dont care but maybe its because we arent v3 [ Reply | More ]

I disagree. I think it's mostly UMC moms who think they'll be fine saving for college, and only bring this up because they want the same rights European women only when it comes to the things that matter to them and that they can't get otherwise. [ Reply | More ]

No, I'm not incoherent. She has enough for college but wants to pretend to herself that she's a high-powered professional. So she takes an insane amount of time off, comes back and does a half-assed job, and whimpers that people don't like her. [ Reply | More ]
