The Family is A-Changin’

Hello all! Long time since I’ve posted. I got a new job at the same place after all the baby time was up. Also - I’m a trans woman - didn’t realise this until about a month ago. I’m in the weeds folks. I’m just so happy that the little one will grow up in a time where my transition will be safe and …


Talking about work and money to my son

I was talking to my son (6y) the other day before bedtime. He wanted to know why I need to go to work (I come home after dinner, about the time he needs to go to bed, so on my workdays, 3 days a week, I only see him just before bed, and this makes him sad sometimes). I told him we have to because …


Talking to The Family pt. 1

Hello comrades! I expect this thread will evolve to more issues revolving around the immediate family of an active and theory-ridden communist. A bit of self disclosure: I’m an only child. My mother is a Boomer and my father is just over the cusp in the Silent Generation. You can imagine the issues …


Moderator Request ⚒️

This is a small branch, but growing quite nicely. If there’s anyone out there who would like to moderate with me and can create a new post at least once a week hit me up. Preferable that you have a child/children in your care. …


“Gender” Learning in Children

Hello again comrades! This week, I wanted to build on a point Magpieinthesky made a few days ago about avoiding gendered products and activities for your kids to help them develop into their own individual selves. Myself, I’m battling my mother who assured me within a year everything will be pink un…


Talking with your verbal child about basic communist values

My baby makes a lot of shouts and cries, but isn’t verbal yet, so no Das Kapital just yet. Any parents out there with 2-4 year olds who ask loads of questions? I’d like to try to outline the child-accessible topics that we might run into in the course of a day: sharing items, roles of people in soci…


So glad with this community

Since I’ve become a father myself in October, this is the one topic I felt I couldn’t share much about on other communities. Mainly because most leftists I meet there don’t have children (yet). …


Values for Revolutionary Children: Discussion

Hello comrade families! I wanted to start a discussion about values in raising children, from infancy and toddlerhood. I think it’s safe to say that trying to get your 2 year old to understand Marx is a fruitless endeavor - they’re children after all! What I’m looking at for my 6 month old is trying…


Welcome one and all!

I’m a father of a 6 month old girl and have been married for 2 years. I’ve been most heavily involved in communist theory for the better part of a year, though I already had these beliefs about 15 years ago and was laughed out of social relevance. We are fucking the earth to death and capital must e…

    How do we raise children in an age where communism is the ultimate goal? If our SOs have different beliefs, how do we advance given the responsibility to someone/anyone we love and trust?
