The Avocado Parenting Thread Prepares for Holidays

Hello fellow parents and caregivers of children!

There are a bunch of new parents here (raises hand) and there are plenty of veteran parents, as well as people who have experience caring or helping to care for children, like teachers, baby-sitters, aunts, and uncles. Coming together will help all of us, whether we need advice, commiseration, or just a space to let it out. Being a caregiver of small humans can be hard, but also rewarding and wonderful, so we can also share in the joys of watching little humans get to be big humans.

This week let’s talk about: Holidays

We just had Thanksgiving in the US, Hanukkah is upon us now, and Christmas is coming up soon. How do your kids handle holidays? What traditions have you created or continued? What challenges do you foresee?

(The prompt is also just a suggestion: please feel free to vent or share about whatever you want related to parenting.)
