Okay so I've been seeing lots of talk about "drama" lately and frankly I don't get it. Sure, we disagree sometimes but if you don't like someone on here just ignore each other and be happy with the other friends that you have made. I for one, really like having my JM being separate from FB and would be really sad if you all decided to only post in that group from now on. So let's all make an effort to keep our PR going strong and post HERE whenever we get the chance!

You guys are truly my best friends and biggest supporters

As a new mom I have always appreciated having this as a place to come and bounce ideas and support each other. We all do a great job at being moms. As I tell my bickering in-laws when things get stormy and they're over our house, "love only zone". Haha

We're all here for the same thing...our child(ren). That's something we can all agree on!

Love only zone!

Totally agree. I much prefer JM over FB, and would hate to see our PR die like my son's did. We don't all have to agree with each other, but we should be able to have lively CIVIL debates over any and all parenting issues we encounter, and we should be able to stand by each other when dealing with difficult situations. JM has been a huge support system to me throughout my parenting journey, and I'm thankful for each and every one of you!

Yep we must stick together. I think I would be devastated if our PR died out. JM is part of my daily routine and has been for quite some time now. I would be so sad if you ladies stopped posting and started posting elsewhere. I've learned so much from everyone of you

I think its the way certain people talk to each other on here, everyone parents different, there is no your way or no way, some breast feed, formula feed, co sleep, crib sleep, bassinet sleep some sleep in the same bed as there husbands some dont, some have college degrees some don't, some wear there babies some dont....point is i don't think anyone has the place to talk down to someone, break out the dictionary and make them feel stupid for posting.

I wasn't only referring to you. There is at least one more person who has stooped to that level, and it is sad to me. No one deserves to be spoken to like that; we should all hold ourselves to a higher standard than that. When things get to that level, that's when people want to leave and not post here anymore.

I can respect different parenting styles, but I cannot respect being patronized, cussed at, or disrespected. I think if we can avoid that, the PR would be okay. If that isn't possible, we should all block those that like to do this. For the most part, it doesn't seem to be a widespread problem. I think most of us on here get along.

i think everyone has there bad days as a mother....some days are not the norm situation, when its not the norm situation everyone acts different, people get frustrated at home, with there spouse/partner etc...being talked down to bc people dont agree with what you are doing is just down right rude...and especially strangers for that matter, we are all moms here, as long as no kids life is in jeopardy or abused then we should probably keep our opinions to ourself ...like i dont wear my baby bc of a freak accident with my daughter, i am not comfortable with it, my son kicks me right where my csection scar is and it hurts so i dont cosleep with him, i have scolosis on the lower part of my back so it KILLS my back to hold him all day, doesnt make me a bad mom bc i dont do certain things as other people ...just saying everyone has different cultures, traditions, etc

I don't think anyone in this group has EVER called someone else a bad mom, or even insinuated that any one of our members is a bad mom.

And if you are one to believe that people should keep their opinions to themselves, you are naturally going to have issues in a SOCIAL message board. Message boards exist for the purpose of discussing, and opinions are the meat of interesting discussions.

I agree that it's best to keep JM and Facebook separate. Unfortunately, it looks like this group is headed down the Facebook path and it will probably take extra effort to keep this board active.

I'm not even on the Facebook group, so I sure hope it doesn't go there. I respect each & every one of you as ladies & moms. I have laughed with you, cried with you, been excited for you, & prayed for you. Please let's all agree to disagree & continue to be here for one another! This Is such a source of strength & encouragement for me.

What is the Facebook site? It would be great if we could keep this board going but I noticed that most play groups fizzle out before they get to one year.

I dont think so Kristen, there are a lot of members on here that arent on facebook. I think some people just need some time from getting their feelings hurt.

Oh for Pete's sake! Guys, things got a little crazy but the drama is never going to go away if we keep talking about how much drama there is. This is why I rarely get along with women....just DROP IT already!!! Things were fine until we started talking it to death and making snarky comments to each other. Lets just be nice!!!

I hope this PR doesn't go to FB. That's what happened to the Nov 12 PR. Partly why I'm so active in this group. It seems like there are a lot of ladies here who want the JM group to stay active and not move to FB.

Deleting, for the same reason I'm no longer co-host. Can't take this.
