The Avocado

The Avocado Parenting Thread is Having Tough Conversations

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.

Suggested topic: Tough Conversations

We all (or most of us) have a memory of our parents stumbling through “The Talk” on the birds & the bees, or maybe awkwardly telling us about Death.

What’s your plan for these tough talks, or others. For parents of older kids or adults, how did it go for you, and what advice can you offer?

Upcoming Topics

I don’t know, suggest something.
