Not just the ones in FYT (although they count, too, of course!)- it could be anywhere- a long-time thread, a due date club, a forum you're really comfortable in. What's your tribe?

Mine is the Harry Potter thread in media. I go there every day (sometimes more!) and have had so much fun with the ladies there. They are absolutely hilarious. And it's been um... very educational, as well.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm


My only real tribe I adore are the mamas in my email list from my web site....all BF mamas from all walks of life who've been members for years........we all just jive really well...........


I come here often, but I wouldn't say I feel it's my tribe. I visit BF advocacy....and the assorted child ageds ones..........lately the co sleeping one has been one I get to alot more than others..........I guess none are truly what I'd call a tribe to me. I have begun to really take a liking to the PAP forum...really like it there.

Oh and another forum site I frequent for doulas. I love them!

I have a few tribes....
one is my group I run on yahoo for moms that live in the northeast area. There are moms of all types and I just love talking to all of them daily. I have got some members of mdc so its great..
Also here at MDC!!..thanks to a friend. I am all over the place here but mostly I check in with the girls in lonely mamas in finding your tribe

My tribe at MDC is definitely the Gifted Children thread in Special Needs. All the mamas there are wonderful, understanding, and supportive of each other and their kids.

I have a few non-MDC tribes as well, one at another parenting site and two at non-parenting sites.

I have an e-mail list of girlfriends that most of us have been together now for about 8-9 years.

My tribe is the running mamas, one of the most supportive and motivational groups that I have encountered!
