The Avocado

The Avocado Parenting Thread has Pets!

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 Pets and Kids.

Sometimes pets can be almost as much work as human children! Do you have pets and kids? Want pets? Do the kids want a dog but you know it’ll be a lot of work for you as a parent? Do you regret having anything more complicated than a goldfish? Share!

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