Circle of Moms as a whole has specific guidelines for users. They have recently made them easier to remember by coming up with No T.H.U.M.P.S. I wanted to break them down for you here as a reminder and define them so we are all on the same page. We really don't have a lot of problems in our community, but I think this will help!





No...



...Threats



...Hate speech



...Unlawful use



...Misrepresentation



...Personal attacks



...Spam



Threats:

You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence or illegal acts against others.



Hate speech:

No slurs or stereotyping. This includes blaming others for being stereotypical when they have not said any such thing. This also includes being respectful of others. If you get an e-mail from Anne or myself asking you a question please respond in a kind way. We are just trying to do our jobs and keep this site Christ honoring. If we are out of line, let us know in a gentle manner, we do make mistakes as we are human.



Unlawful use:

You may not use Circle of Moms for unlawful purposes or promotion of illegal activities. If it's illegal where you live or in the state of California it's illegal here.



Misrepresentation:

You must be who you say you are. No false mom or child profiles.



Personal attacks:

You may not abuse, slander, or vilify another member. This means don't hit reply with quote and totally attack what the other mom said. Seriously. If you don't agree with someone you can state your beliefs without tearing others apart. You can support your beliefs and why you believe that way, but do not say something like "Sallie, I believe that you are wrong!!!" You can say "I disagree with some of the other posts, because I believe..." Do not say something like "You are a horrible mother!" or "Shame on you!" Yes the Bible says that we are to make each other aware of sin, but please do it in a kind and gentle manner. Please keep all replies in accordance with Romans 14.



Spam:

You may not publish or post solicitations or advertisements in our community. Any that are posted will be deleted. This includes both conversations and links.



Like I said, we have a great community here, but I thought this would be a great reminder. Also for new members coming in we can all start out on the right foot! If by chance you do see something that violates theses guidelines, please just flag it so we can look into it.



Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.



***I wanted to add that as Christian Mommies we need to be careful about how we represent ourselves. Check your profile picture and make sure it is appropriate.

Given some of the stuff I've seen posted, I think it was perfect timing for a reminder.



Be blessed for your diligence in keeping our community running in a godly manner.

Hello everyone! I am so grateful to have found this group of wonderful women. I am a stay at home mom, so sometimes I can feel pretty isolated. I look forward to getting to know you. God bless you today!

My kis are all grown up. I hve 2 grandsons that I love like my own. I hope this will be a blessing for me and others. Sometimes peoples actions say more than words. Just because you dont say things to peoples face you still send out a message with your actions. Think about it.

All Glory goes to God! I know that had it not been for the"realtionship" I have with God that I would never have been able to raise my daughters in the fear,love and respect of the Lord.

I totally agree with these guidelines. It is my first post and I will keep visiting and posting. God has blessed me with 2 wonderful boys (6 1/2 and almost 8 years old) and I Thank God every day for them. I have bought a lot of Christian children books and read with them all the time. This past Christmas we read a lot about the birth of Jesus and how important He is in our lives.



I am touch that they are the ones wanting to say Grace before dinner. God bless this group and will be back later. Nelly

As a new member I'm sure of 2 things, 1) God is in control and 2) all of us need help and advice at every stage of motherhood. I have 4 children aged 46, 42, 38 and 19. There are 6 grandchildren so far and for 22 years I've been a foster mom to medically fragile oor drug addicted newborns. I've learned a lot and am still often need advice yet. I'm looking forward to "meeting" many of you.

We are Godly women. It is time for Godly women to stand up and say enough. We have sat down, stayed quiet and let too much stuff slide for way too long. I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for what He did for me on the cross, that I never, ever want to hurt Him in any way by not standing up for Him. He deserves all the praise, honor and glory that we bestow on Him. Thank You for this website for Christian mothers.

Hi All, Thank you so much to the people that put this Awesome group together. I am a mum of 2 children and 2 foster children and also open our home to other children in need. I would really love some support in prayer and advice but am unsure if this group is for a spacific age group ???

Hi all. I am new to this group and I think that the verse Ephesians 4:29 is what we need to focus on and these "thumps" are a gentle reminder to do this on and off line. God bless you all as we raise children for God. Happy New Year
