The Avocado

The Avocado Parenting Thread is Ready for Winter!

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.

If you or someone you know is having trouble finding a Covid vaccine for a small child, check out this crowd-sourced map of possible locations:

This week, let’s talk about Weather.

It’s that time of year again in the northern hemisphere. How does the changing weather affect your kids? Do you have to fight to get them to wear a coat, or do they want to be out freezing all day? Any other weather-related challenges for you?

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