There was a cool thread in MMM crowdsourcing ideas to get partners on the same page for money. I am thinking it might be cool to have a space for that for parenting ideas.
For example, in my family how we talk about food is something I have strong feelings on. My co-parent and I are not on the same page. There’s good will and we’re trying, but it’s just one example of, I’m sure, many things we are trying to work out compassionately with our fellow parent in this crazy journey.
So, in a nutshell this thread is about exploring and problem solving around getting parents or caregivers on the same page.
Feel free to be funny, but have a problem solving mindset. Rage and hyperbole are my lifeblood, so far be it from me to hold you back from a hilarious rant, but try to bring it back to what you wanna solve.
Don’t insult other people’s coparents. If you feel like there are red flags you really want to address, then please expect to use all the tact and emotional labor to be polite and considerate in raising them. And maybe do it, in like, a PM.
Beware of sexism. Not that I really care about cis het mens feelings (OK IM JOKING) all this moms know best or dads are dopes doesn’t do anyone any favors. Also is heteronormative. This probably won’t be a problem here but worth mentioning.
