On a scale from 1-10 for how much did I NEED school to start as scheduled. That was a 100. Today has arrived! And last duckling was so happy to join, bye baby💕🦆 But can any parent survive what the past 6 months have done to their PhD?

Okay, I can’t start the week feeling like everything in academia is rigged and pointless. Tell me something you found useful or fulfilling in your grad program. Not that braggy thing about your 15 first-author publications. The real, personal growth stuff.

I know my little twitter following is not an adequate sample but first reactions to student-parent grants requiring a zoom interview instead of a tedious itemized budget and essay? If the goal was to simplify a clunky process? What would you need to make it preferable?

What measures are universities putting in place to support academic parents? Are there backup plans for those looking after babies & toddlers or homeschooling vulnerable children?

Dear parents, how would you fill in the X? "In an ideal world (with 55% paid parental leave), I would have gone back to work when my baby was X months old". (please RT!)

Majority of U.S. of young children do not feel comfortable with babysitters right now. How are supporting parents, especially those pre-tenure or on fixed-term contracts?

In 2017 I poured my heart into a chapter for a book on academic parents and their experiences, but it looks like the editors haven't had any luck in getting it published. Any thoughts on another venue for my chapter?

Important: „A survey of PIs indicates that female scientists, those in the ‘bench sciences’ and, especially, scientists with young children experienced a substantial decline in time devoted to research. This could have important short- and longer-term effects on their careers...”
