A story about workplace culture pressing parents to pretend their children don’t exist: “The general sense is that everyone should adopt the polite fiction that after the first several months of leave, the child disappears into a void…”

This sounds completely bonkers! Especially now, when after-school care is hard to come by. I’m grateful that my jobs allow me to “parent openly,” which until now I thought was the only way to do it.

@david My workplace is very good about kids. Mine come in a lot, everybody knows them.

@david But it's a university and they do try at such things.
