New name for Parenting Issues

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think about renaming that forum Parenting Situations?

I think it's fit better with what everyone is going through. It's not an ISSUE that you are a WOHM, Single Mom, SAHM, step-parent, special needs parent. It's merely a situation.

You bring up an interesting point. Let's see what others feel and I certainly will take it into consideration.

Sounds good to me. It's not such a drastic change that people will have trouble recocnizing the board- many probably wouldn't even notice the change!

yes!

I think it's a good idea.

I think Parenting Situations is a great name for all the subforums because they aren't issues. However there are issues posted in the general area of that forum. Issues is a pretty negative word though.
Maybe call it Parenting Situations & Solutions?

It could just be called "Parenting Sub-forums)

I prefer situations over issues too.

Issues doesn't bother me but perhaps Concerns would be a better word. Situations isn't quite the right word.

I interpret it as issues which are a result of being WOHM, SAHM, Single, Special Needs Parent, not that it is an issue that you are whichever one.

I don't think we need to see it as an "issue" that one WOHM, SAHM, is a single parent, Special Needs parent, step-parent etc. It's merely a parenting situation. Your thoughts?
That is true for those specific subforums, although the main forum does focus on issues associated with parenting.

i see no point in changing it... what is wrong with the word issue? all it means is "a point, matter, or dispute, the decision of which is of special or public importance" it is not pejorative in any way. and i think for most people here, working outside (or inside) the home is a matter of special importance, and having a special needs child is a matter of special importance, etc. etc....

I say just call it all "Parenting Topics". That is what it is. Seems simple. "Topics" is a less loaded word than "Issues", and it is more accurate, too.

i just saw the other (locked) thread in the parenting issues forum... this post from cee3 is right on the money - and cracked me right up!!

"Issue" only equals "problem" if you're speaking corp-babble.

Thank you for owning this issue, though. We should all think outside the box and leverage our skills to bring about a win-win. Let's action this item, drive this to resolution, and touch bases upon completion.

What do you all think of Unique Parenting Situations.....this allows for the uniqueness of each sub-group addressed in this forum
