A while back, I asked about how to be supportive to your new parent friends. I got a lot of wonderful advice that has proved helpful. Here is a question that I’ve been pondering a lot as my friends start to venture out of their houses with their kidlets: what tips do you have for being a good host to kids and their parents in your house?
In my case, I live in a small city apartment. As a kid I grew up in the country where there was a lot of room to run around, so I’m a bit at a loss. So… what are things that parents wish their non-parent friends had available in their homes? What should we avoid doing or having? I don’t mean that I want to totally change my home around, but how can I make it a little easier when my friends who are also parents are visiting with their kids? — Amelia
