Parenting Debates & Hot Topics

Harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications -- especially those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious views, national origin, or disability -- will not be permitted, you will receive one waring to your inbox...then you will be removed from the community if you receive any other complaints. Please be aware that the use of sarcasm to wound or belittle someone in a debate is not allowed and is considered attacking. These posts will be pulled as disruptive.
