This thread has a theme—children and the holidays. These “Children Are People” open threads are places for stories, questions, ideas, links, and discussion surrounding children and parenting issues. You do not have to have children yourself to participate. This space operates as a chatter thread alongside the Lesbian Duplex, and can be located by a chatter link in the tabs below the site header. Two quick notes! First, my comment policy lays out the house rules. Please abide by them. Second, this is a safe space for positive parenting. While disagreement and discussion are find, childist comments will be deleted. Enjoy!
