The Avocado

The Avocado Parenting Thread is (Maybe) Ready for 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.

Kids are always growing and changing, and parenthood is about helping them to navigate the changes, while struggling to navigate them ourselves! What changes have you and your kids made recently, and how have you managed them?

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