I have found this with precisely one other person so far, my bestie from college, and sadly she usually lives around the globe from me BUT the community she provides via text is amazing.
It’s super frustrating though when you don’t line up. We’re trying to navigate this with our neighbors right now. Just today, there was some language around
[details=“TW disordered food language”]
donuts being “bad foods” and needing to “earn them” with biking, that sort of thing.
[/details] not to mention we have pretty different approaches to discipline. And as all the kids get older, this is becoming more apparent. And it’s hard to navigate the level of access and community there versus those differences. It’s wonderful having people with similarly aged kids that we can ask at a moments notice if they want to meet up at the playground and that sort of thing, we would be way more isolated without them, but it’s hard to balance the implications of isolation versus exposure to parenting ideas that we’re not big fans of.
