The Avocado Parenting Thread Makes Changes

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 Changes.

Last week we talked about Plans and previously we’ve talked about routines. Many kids thrive on consistent routines. What about changes? How well do they deal with it when things have to be altered? What do you do to help them navigate changes?

(Feel free to post about things unrelated as well, the prompt is just a suggestion.)
