Natural Family Living:
The Mothering magazine monthly discussion group

MotheringDotCommune is pleased to announce Natural Family Living: The Mothering magazine monthly discussion group , an interactive discussion group for our members, moderators and administrators.

Each month we will feature a new NFL topic from Peggy O’Mara’s book Natural Family Living. The topic will be one ongoing thread and will be facilitated by moderators, administrators, ask the experts and some of our awesome members! Only the facilitators and administrators will be able to start threads but discussions will not be moderated to allow for a free flow of conversation.

Each month we will present a topic to the community. The discussion thread will remain open to posting for one month at which time the discussion will be closed and placed in an archive.

The posting guidelines will be:
  • Please do not start threads in this forum; they will be deleted without notice
  • Members' posts must respect our current user agreement
    • The facilitator or a moderator may ask for edits if posts are not in compliance with our current user agreement or these guidelines
  • Please do not copy any part of these discussions on MDC or elsewhere on the web
  • Please do not bring up past or present discussions elsewhere on MDC or on the web for discussion

We’re excited to see where these discussions take us as an online Natural Family Living community and we look forward to getting to know everyone better.

These are the chapters in the book. Some months we will feature just one chapter. Other months, we will combine topics.
