Kids! Parenting! Families!
A lot of us have to deal with all or some of the above.
Whether you're planning your start on this journey, you've just jumped into the pool and are wondering wtf is going on, you're well on your way into toddlerhood, just getting ready for school, or you're able to see the actual light at the end of the tunnel, Join us!
Basic rules for this thread
Talk about your kids! Bitch about your kids! Complain and commiserate and show pride in your kids! Kvetch about your in-laws, your parents, or even random strangers in the supermarket thinking that they know better than you about your kids.
Nothing is sacred, but we do ask that if all you're going to do is come in here and start in on how dumb we all are for having kids, or you're going to go on a rant about how having children at this time in human history is dumb/stupid/selfish/whatever, kindly fuck off with that shit. It's hard enough to be a parent without added guilt.
I think a big focus in this thread is going to be discussing things like how we're all coping with school/covid. That is definitely welcome talk! Somebody might have found a strategy for coping that you haven't thought of yet!
Let's talk about our kids, y'all.
