hello new to this site, i am agreeing and also disagreeing with this subject, i do think we are too soft, but on the other hand alot of 'modern' parents are far too strict, or shud we say cud do with parenting classes to be taught to show love anbd affection
comment to MIGGSIE, i wud never ask someone else to let my child win, children have to learn that they dont always win and that other people deserve to win etc. what happens when the kids are adults, u shouldnt feel guilty for winning something the same way you shud not have sour grapes about a friend winning something, children have to learn. i think im quite soft but i think that children MUST learn to share, compassion etc
Welcome slbezza! What you've written is fine, but you need to write it properly. No text speak and proper punctuation is the order of the day on here.
Personally I avoid writing in capitals because it looks like shouting so onepiece's advice about bold is good.
If you want to make something bold, italic or strike-through you need to do it to every word or it won't work. eg everywordbold is *every word bold* if you just put it at the beginning and end of the bit you want to highlight.
"Lol"ing when you are not actually laughing and using it to punctuate as you have in your thread title is generally frowned upon. It is ok to laugh when something is amusing or even PMSL, ROFL or LMAO.
Have a look at GettingStarted at the top. Lots of useful hints and tips in there.
And remember, if you ever feel you've made a fool of yourself (and we all have at some point) the beauty of MN is you can just change your name and start again
Hi slbezza - not quite sure which post you're refering to in your thread text but in reply to your title - new member trying t join a convo - I'd say just go for it! Just remember that what you say is available for anyone with internet access to see at any time so keep the personal details to a minimum unless you're happy for your views to be completely free and aired, and just join in.
Don't worry about putting your foot in it or getting crossed wires - I've put my foot in it many a time, the last time being on Thursday night - sorry hf128219 and 6feetundertheGroundhogs - but in general people are mainly forgiving and respect that we're human beings who bleed when we're cut and have different views that collectively make for a diverse and colourful world! Go for it! Welcome to Mumsnet!
Yup, he'd have to rascal you. I'm too boring in the sack (apparently..informed tonight by cnut of a partner that I'm too boring) but OP, bumsex always seems to be an obsession of parenting sites. Whatever rings your bell eh?
