Mumsnet philosophy

We believe that by pooling knowledge and experience, parents can make each other's lives easier.

Please bear in mind that issues to do with raising children can be very sensitive and that everyone has the right to make their own choices when it comes to bringing up their kids. This is a discussion forum and we ask you to respect other people's right to their opinions, even if you disagree with them.

Our policy is to keep intervention to a minimum and let the conversation flow. Having said that, we will remove postings that are obscene, contain personal attacks or break the law.

Please bear in mind that we all know how difficult this parenting business can be, and if there's one thing all of us could do with, it's some moral support.
