Let me know what you think about these folder titles...

1. Welcome (roll calls & a welcome message, polls & games)

2. Celebrations (birthdays, anniversaries etc)

3. What would you do (posts seeking advice)

4. Brags (tell us all the GREAT stuff your boys have been doing lately)

5. Vents (a good place to share frustrations)

6. Sports (updates on how our boys teams are doing & talk about Pro sports)

7. Wishing for a Princess...(thoughts on wishing for a girl)

8. Babies & Toddlers

9. Grade School

10. Teen Years


I don't think we really want to have more than 10. I'm not ready to submit a list, I would really like some more feedback. I tried to shorten the titles as much as possible. I didn't add a specific folder for discipline or potty training, b/c I think they can be discussed well in some of these folders. I"m going to ask if we can get rid of all the folders we have now, they will probably just rename them. I don't really think we need an "off topic" folder since pretty much EVERYTHING in our lives relates in some way to our boys.

I like them. It's so hard to decide on what will be best for the future isn't it?

Thanks for your input Carol. I'm pretty sure we can change them or add to them later, but I really feel like the ones we have now are just too "generic".

I really like them! I'm a person who likes categories and make lists.

I'm sure my fellow *listers* would agree. Of course, you can start small,

like what you have now and build up if there is really a need for a

particular folder.

Thanks, my biggest problem with our current folder titles is that they are so "generic" and we didn't get to pick them.

I know I mostly lurk here and don't post too often, but I think 10 folders is way too many. Less is easier to deal with. And your posts may get lost in the jumble if your not sure what to post under, or if some folders get read less. I don't know. Just my opinion.

Thanks Stephanie, I'm very interested in everyone's opinion. I'm not at all familiar with this type of format & really am not sure what the best approach is. I know that I am not happy with the generic titles they have given us, but I can see where we could probably cut back to only 4 or 5 folders if everyone likes that idea.

I like all your folders! I think 10 should work. I like having things broken down as much as possible. I also like the way you broke up the ages, it makes it easier to find our son's peer group.

Although I like the "wishing for a princess", I just had mine (hehe) so I thought instead maybe we should call it "girl talk" or something like that because not all of us want girls. Under "girl talk" it could be talking about/wishing for a girl, talking about our son's dating (interacting) girls, us ladies having girl talk, our the few of us that have girls can talk about our girls, etc. I think it opens it up for a broader amount of discussion.

~I hope I'm making sense here~

Thanks Karen, I like your idea about the "girl" folder.
