/r/Parenting is the place to discuss the ins and out as well as ups and downs of child-rearing. From the early stages of pregnancy to when your teenagers are finally ready to leave the nest (even if they don't want to) we're here to help you through this crazy thing called parenting. You can get advice on potty training, talk about breast feeding, discuss how to get your baby to sleep or ask if that one weird thing your kid does is normal.
We are people. Mucking through the ickier parts of child raising. It may not always be pretty, fun and awesome, but we do it.
And we want to be here for others who are going through the same experiences and offer a helping hand.
A place for new parents, new parents to be and old parents who want to help out. Posts focusing on the transition into living with your new little one and any issues that may come up. Ranting and gushing is welcome!
Raising Kids is a community for those interested in insightful articles, reddiquette, reading before voting and intelligent respectful discussion on the topic of parenting and raising children.
This reddit is inspired by the ideals of TrueReddit and RepublicOfReddit.
Some things are not allowed:
comments that are overly aggressive or hateful;
any sort of Low Investment Material (e.g. advice animals);
pictures of kids (except to illustrate a larger point)).
This is a place for stepparents to rant and rave (in good humor) about the trials and tribulations of being a stepparent. Also a place to post for when your stepchild does something that makes you so proud you are about to burst. Just remember regardless if you are laughing or crying "We Are Family." Stepkids welcome! Non-stepparents are welcome to post if doing so in the spirit of openness and understanding.
