Blended And Step Family Parenting Forum Guidelines
This forum is for discussing Attachment Parenting and Natural Family Living in a Blended or Step Family situation. It is for custodial and non-custodial parents. Its purpose is not to vent about the other parties in your family (including step-children or their custodial parents). However, legitimate complaints may be discussed here to gather support for approaching the situation with a positive outlook.
When you are posting, please keep firmly in mind the following, from our User Agreement:
We do not tolerate any type of discrimination in the discussions, including but not limited to racism, heterosexism, classism, religious bigotry, or discrimination toward the disabled.
Mothering invites you to read and participate in the discussions. In doing so we ask that you agree to respect and uphold the integrity of this community. Through your direct or indirect participation here you agree to make a personal effort to maintain a comfortable and respectful atmosphere for our guests and members.
We are asking you to remember that, though you may or may not have a great relationship with a child, a step-child's custodial parent, or a child's step parent, this is not necessarily a true sampling of custodial and/or step parents. Your comments must reflect the understanding that both guests and members read these threads, and we want all of them to feel welcome here.
Generalization of a group, is not appropriate and will cause a request for edit or a removal of the post/thread.
We appreciate the discussion and support that goes on in this forum, and want to be sure that all sides of the issues are discussed and supported.
Thank you for your cooperation!
