      Okay, Ladies…time to put our heads together again.

      ——

      Today, a question was asked:

      ”Do you have to be a mom to be on here?”

      My reply was this:

      ”Mom Friends is here to support others. While we are meant to be a group of trying to concieve, moms to be, and moms, we are willing to make exceptions to lend support to any woman”

      ——

      So, this got me to thinking. We are a supportive website with many groups. Not all are based on motherhood.

      Also, on Cafemom, there were many dads out there looking for advice from moms about raising children.

      ‘There are also some men who identify more with women and could use the support we have to offer.

      ——-

      so, in y’alls opinion, what exceptions should we be willing to make when it comes to having members that are not trying to concieve, moms to be, or moms?

      What do you feel comfortable with or not feel comfortable with?

      These are questions that are going to be asked of me and I need a clear response. I’d like to give you all say in this.

      I don’t have an issue with non moms joining .. I mean if they are confortable with joining a mom site it’s fine with me .. but like with any member if they cause issues or anything they will need to be removed

      I don’t have trouble with anyone joining as long as they don’t bring drama with them. As a parent who has adopted, done foster care and now raising 3 grandkids there are all kinds of ways to be a “mom”. There are men out there that are raising their children that need help, women who just need another woman to talk to, etc. I do think that some groups might be more comfortable being closed and that should be up to them.

      I agree if someone wants to join that is great.

      I much rather someone be honest in who they are be it male or female.

      I am comfy with non moms joining. I’m also comfy with dads raising kids. I’m comfy with whatever. If they caused problems we will take care of it.

      @Delta

      I agree with you too-at first I thought well what would it be like with men and then I thought hey, they’d be having an ‘In the Bedroom’ forum too and I think it would make this site kinda strange.  I would be up for including women that are childless.

      I have to agree with this as well.

      I was just checking because our old group on Cafe mom was staying it was a stipulation. We have childless women in our group and we are looking for a new home. They were using this as a reason not to join this site. I felt like I was never asked and that being a woman without children wouldn’t matter.

      @skmquitter your group is definitely more than welcome here 🙂 I actually had quite a few messages back and forth between a member of your group during the last few days of Cafemom and was wondering what happened. We would love to have all of you. Please let them all know.
