I saw something on Pinterest recently that said if you don’t listen to your child telling you little stuff now, they won’t bother telling you the big stuff when they’re older – because it’s ALL big stuff to them.

Americans may not have their paid maternity leave cake and eat it too, apparently.
6. Typing or data entry—You are often required to provide a lot of personal information up front, along with a payment for a starter package.
