I'm so sorry you feel that way. I just recently found this board. I have 2 teenagers, and I think it goes without saying that it is a very difficult time. It looks like we have a very close-knit group of ladies here that share some of the same parenting philosophies. Not all parents are the same, and I think some fresh thoughts would be great! I hope it doesn't deter you from posting here. If you think something goes beyond being negative and you think it violates TOS, you can always RAV a post, and the CMs can look into it.

Im sorry if my post sounded bad there are just a couple posters not necessarily just on this board that sounded very critical and negative and it wasn't even to any post I have written. And after I posted I realized that maybe something I write might sound critical or negative.
But no it won't stop me from posting.
Thank you for responding and I hope that I can get some advice when I need it.

No, I didn't think your post was bad at all. We all need to vent occasionally. Hope to get to know you and your family. :o)

Wow, I'm really sorry you feel that way too. I'm VERY recent on this board, 1 mid-teen still at home, 2 young 20's long out of home. I KNOW my opinion on raising kids probably differs (maybe even extremely to some) but it's all just "opinion". I certainly hope I don't give anyone the impression I am attacking them as a person or their way of doing things, I can only offer what has worked (or not) for me!


Do you have teens yourself? And I HOPE we're teaching our kids to think before we speak- but in the "real world" we all know that things come up that set us off for some reason. Then, hopefully, we also teach our kids and practice ourselves saying, "I'm sorry."


Its also possible you are mistaking the purpose of a board that you visit, for instance- if you go to the "Rebuilding After an Affair" board or whatever it's called, and request advise on your relationship with a married man, you WILL NOT recieve a warm welcome.


There are so many boards here on different "channels", is there something in particular you are looking for?

Thank you, Cheryl I guess I just don't take criticism very well and I even get offended when someone criticizes someone else it is one of my many downfalls and I need to work on it. I will come back and post when I need advice and I will either take it or leave it. It wasn't even me that was being criticized. Thanks again I will come back.

I used to wear that blinkie proudly as I used to Cl a debate board.. Ugh.. Also, sometimes when you are reading, you can infer a certain connotation about the post that was not intended. So the poster may not have meant it ugly, but I read it as such. I had a part in my original post about none of us, to my knowledge, are counselors, so take all advice with a grain of salt.
