The Avocado Parenting Thread is Making Friends ?!

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 Friends.

How’s it going? Does your kid have trouble making friends? Do you hate the kids they hang out with? Are they the center of activity that leaves you feeling exhausted?

And how about you? Do you have parent friends who support you and you support, or are you flailing about in solitary desperation?
