Parenting 420

Have the initial postpartum hormones of doom worn off, leaving you ready to relax and celebrate the fact that you haven't eaten your offspring? Do you never want to see another diaper as long as you live? Is your special snowflake weaned, potty educated, using a spoon and leaving you wondering what comes next? Are you tired of wading through posts in other communities of subjects you've already covered? Looking for a place to talk about the challenges of parenting older kids?

If so, welcome to parenting420, an advanced course in creative parenting of children ages 5 and up. Here we will tackle the challenges pertaining to school, social situations, puberty, communication, co-parenting skills and the teenage years. If you've gotten this far, you have come to realize not to sweat the small stuff, so come on in, chill out and share ideas and resources with other moms and dads.

Please keep questions and discussions to the topic of children ages 5 and up. If you have questions about breastfeeding, diapering, car seats, potty learning and so forth, take it to parenting101. Occasionally there may be a special case or exception. Just use discretion.
