Childcare co-op

Every Monday morning we get together and coordinate in a way that keeps our babies happy and safe, and allows one or more moms each time to do their own thing, from computer work to yoga, to important phone-calls.

Area: Kaimakli-Aglantzia.

Reading group

Comparing notes and critical discussions on contemporary parenting trends and issues


“[The prevalent] prescriptive parenting picture is fundamentally misguided, from a scientific, philosophical, and political point of view, as well as a personal one. It’s the wrong way to understand how parents and children actually think and act, and it’s equally wrong as a vision of how they should think and act. It’s actually made life worse for children and parents, not better.”
