The Avocado Parenting Thread Lays Down the Law

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 Discipline.

How do you handle discipline? If you co-parent, does one of you handle the “bad cop” role more often? Who undermines your attempts to make rules – grandparents, teachers, relatives?

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