Parental Guidance December 2, 2017: Ghosts Of Christmas Past

Hello and welcome to Parental Guidance, The Avocado’s Weekly thread for parents, prospective parents, caregivers and other lunatics 1 who think they have what it takes to raise some humans. Each week I, Corn, and/or Miss Rim will put up a thread with a discussion prompt and open the floor to all parents who may be looking for advice, sharing a fun experience, or just venting about how goddamn maddening this crazyass responsibility can be.

This week’s topic: Christmas with your kids

What kind of experiences have you had with your children while celebrating the Christmas holidays? Do you have any traditions/rituals you do together as a family? What kind of gifts have they received? How do you cope with the inevitable stress and exhaustion that comes with this time of year? Share your memories, traumas and everything in between. It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. or, the most something-est time, at least.
