No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I'm not talking about the kids.

Welcome to the Parenting forum, a place to discuss topics surrounding parent/child relationships. Additional sub-forums have been created to discuss issues relevant to adoption, grandparents, pregnancy, and children with special needs. Here are some basic guidelines for the board:

1. Please try to be respectful of one another. Many parents react to criticism about their children or parenting abilities with defensiveness or disapproval, not necessarily because they believe their children are angels who can do no wrong, but because criticism can feel like an act of aggression from an outsider. That protective instinct can be a bear ... a mother bear.

2. Everyone is welcome here to post on parenting topics. The board is about parents, not just for parents. Topics may be discussed by mothers and fathers, parents and children, those with children and those without. However, please keep #1 in mind, and remember that respect goes both ways. Please don't poke the bears. Bears, please don't attack the tourists.

3. Finally, please note that some topics, such as abortion, postpartum depression, child support, special education, etc., are more appropriate for other forums and may be moved as needed. Some discussion in threads is fine as long as the thread is not hijacked too much.

Thanks for reading. Now go play.

UPDATE..Temporary ban on Facebook, and other Social media sites

These threads tend to veer off topic into complaints about those sights and off topic discussions tend to turn argumentative, and threads have to be closed.

That being said I am restricting any Facebook, and other Social Media threads/posts in this forum for the time being.

Please keep in mind when making a new thread, or making a post that it will be deleted.

Please report any new FB threads and posts, instead of participating in the discussion
