Hi all - I have the opposite question. We're not moved in yet, but I'm already very comfortable being my kids' "safe base". They disappear with other kids and members at every meeting, social event and site tour - to return to me or their dad only when they really need US in particular. Lately, I've noticed my kids (ages 6 and 3) being too rough on some of the younger, nonparent grown-ups and getting away with it because the adult didn't know how to respond. Other nonparent adults seem to handle them effortlessly - in fact, most of them get better behavior from the kids than I do. Given that any adult in cohousing may have to set boundaries for the kids at any time, how has your group dealt with sharing parenting skills/rules throughout the group, especially among nonparents? And, for the record, Eno Commons will have a separate playroom adjacent to, and visible through a window from, the co-dining space. Limiting the noise in the dining room was an important consideration in our design.
