Parentsofdis, are you a new website? MN poster with another life ;)?
Just wondered really

MumOfThreeMonkeys Wed 14-Oct-09 07:55:24

i was also wondering that smile

lou031205 Wed 14-Oct-09 08:59:34

parentsofdis is a new website formed because there are no online support groups for parents of children with disabilities, apparently hmm

MumOfThreeMonkeys Wed 14-Oct-09 09:06:57

whats this then??

anonandlikeit Wed 14-Oct-09 09:07:47

So who are they?

lou031205 Wed 14-Oct-09 09:43:43

A forum site set up by a parent of a child with disability. They have 34 members. I was particularly unimpressed that they linked to their 'information page' about statementing, which was a direct lift of IPSEA's page.

Without acknowledgement.

Thanks Lou, was just wondering if they were an organisation, a paretn type thing os something ele.
They seem to have answered alot of threads, except this one
TBH is probabily is a very good idea to have all the info in one place but without introduction i was just wondering.
So is it similar to specialkids?

wow they are cheeky
I don't get why mn hq allow advertising on the sn board, I get a bit pissed of with it tbh

troutpout Wed 14-Oct-09 12:22:14

Where? what? who?

lou031205 Wed 14-Oct-09 18:31:48

they are www dot parents of disabled children dot co dot uk. From first glance, it seems to be very new. But their founder is specifically using MN to promote their forum, instead of using MN for MN, IYSWIM.

Are you a professional at taking the piss, or just extremely talented?

As that post readsas a veiledattack on MN I do hope they ban you this time.

parentsofdis Wed 14-Oct-09 20:52:50

It was not an attack in anyway.
I have found Net Mums very good and have also given us some positive feedback.
I just feel that mumsnet managment have been trying to protect there profits here a little.
Ok i am leaving now.
Thanks and enjoy!

BobbingForPeachys Wed 14-Oct-09 20:54:12

Ah yes, I do enoy indeed.


PMSl at Netmums. Hun.

parentsofdis Wed 14-Oct-09 20:57:27

Netmums have a very good site i find and very effective and easy to browse.
Gosh its like gangland,my forum is bigger than yours attitude.
All i know is that we have set up the forum for the right reasons and i will not retract that.
And to be insulted and be told im a victim just for trying to do some good....

I had alook earlier i thought it looked like a good site.

feelingbetter Wed 14-Oct-09 21:08:16

Oh, dear lord, you still here?

This isn't a gangland.
It is a supportive and helpful forum for parents of disabled children, one which you are more than welcome to join, seek help and contribute.
It's those who contribute who care.
I do not turn to MNHQ for help and support, I turn to a board that they manage, which is full of wonderful people.

It really is a pity you missed out.

parentsofdis Wed 14-Oct-09 21:09:01

Thank you Fluffy poms i really value that feedback.
Ok please accept my appology and i will tread the line finely here from now on.
I was frustrated earlier today on the basis that a really useful post was actually deleted.
Please members feel free to come and join but understand i was merely frustrated that the forum deleted all refrences to the our site even though it was real help we were offering.
