HeavyRain - A Safe Space
When the wind begins to whistle, and stray papers fly by
When heavy clouds start gathering, darkening your day's sky
Behold a brewing storm, take shelter in a warm embrace
Watch the raindrops slide in harmony, through the window of a safe place
We weather the storm together, observe the lightning and thunder
No storm lasts forever, it ends and we bask in the sunshine

A STARTER GUIDE FOR NEW CAREGIVERS
this guide goes for any new caregivers out there that want to start caring for a kiddo so badly but don't even know where to start :]
🫐 first of all: don't freak out, learning is always important and this is your time!
🫐 make sure to establish boundaries and/or rules with the kiddo you're gonna take care of
🫐 ask if the relationship will stay platonic or romantic beforehand (very important!!!)
🫐 be careful with your words, don't cuss, be kind and respectful to them
🫐 allow yourself to take time off your caregiver duty
🫐 ask which games they like to play, which toys they enjoy playing with
🫐 get to know your kiddo, it's important to know their triggers or phobias
🫐 if you have time, write down the routine you and your kiddo should follow
🫐 if you're long distance make sure to reassure them that you are there, call if you feel comfy with that, send pictures, tag them in nice posts
🫐 reassurance is important also if you take care of more than one kiddo
🫐 ask them about their day even if it's just happy nonsense babbles please listen to them
🫐 listen to their concerns and tricky questions
🫐 respect their alone time and they should respect yours as well
🫐 clean their baby gear, put their stuffies all neatly in bed, make them yummy snacks
🫐 learn about their allergies and the foods they just can't eat!!
🫐 reward them for their good behavior or if they try hard enough staying big during the day!
🫐 spend time outside, make sure to protect them from the weather everytime
🫐 talk to them about your interests they will love it!
🫐 stablish a healthy bedtime schedule
🫐 put your mental health as a priority, this shouldn't be a weight on your shoulders, listen to your needs
🫐 don't make them tell you things about their past or things that are traumatic, if they refuse just let it go, don't pressure them
🫐 always listen, it's more important than you think
also for caregivers of pet regressors:
🫐 get the food they like the most
🫐 give them treats snacks
🫐 teach them tricks!
🫐 take them out for a nice walk around the park if they like it!
and last but not least, enjoy yourself, allow yourself to slip into that caregiver headspace and have fun! even when it's a hard time it should still be something enjoyable to do for both you and your kiddo <3
let me know if you want me to add anything else to the list :D
Pattern from TheWitchyStitcher (freebie on their site). Making the bats into Pride Bats was my idea and I have it hanging on my front door.
Clockwise: Inclusive Pride heart, Bisexual/-romantic, Aromantic, MLM specific, Mental Health, Queer Villain, Disabilities, Sapphic (which I first learned about from @vaspider btw), Asexual, and Pansexual/-romantic
I started making this when I came to the conclusion that I'm going to need to get roommates this year to keep my house and I want to make it clear that my home is a safe space, and one that likes bats.
