I wish there was was a Parenting Parents forum.
I'm thinking you are looking for places to talk about when it comes time to parent and caregiver for your own parents? There are a few older threads in Finding Your Tribe, or you are welcome to start a new thread/tribe.
Or you are more than welcome to start your own Group in our Groups area! It seems there are other mamas who also encounter this on MDC and I'm sure it would be well received
If for some reason I got the topic wrong and you meant parenting yourself while parenting (another topic I've seen), I think there have been some threads in Personal Growth
Hope that helps!
Thanks! I did mean parenting my parents. My kids have moved out (well, to college) and my parents have moved in. They're in their 80s. We're getting along well. there's a lot of stress with my brother as well as some tangled legal issues). So I will look at old threads and/or starting something new up later this week. Rough one at work!
I'll try to get on this this week.
I figured I couldn't be the only one in this boat. My parents are 83 & 84, and just moved in with me (just over a month ago). My kids are 19 & 21, both in college. 21 lives in Philly year-round, 19 comes home on breaks. It's... interesting. Overall, smooth, but... it's a complicated situation.
Thanks, mamarhu! I think that might be a good place to take this sort of discussion, plus others. Not as limited as one purely on dealing with older parents.
Hey everyone else interested:
