When parents want to give other parents unsolicited advice, it’s always to be a reminder rather than a preacher. There are simply too many unknown variables in the incredibly complex equation it takes to equal a family for an outsider to make many “laws of parenting.” Very good messages to start the new year with; just have to be careful about the delivery.
Anecdotally, my toddler (1.75 yo) used to give me raspberries on my stomach. I miss those since she’d rather stand on my stomach now (good for strength exercises) or give me a fist bump. I often wonder if I got enough of those raspberries.*
i know it was you, fredo
*Good parents already know the answer.
