Welcome to Parenting Little Heathens

Hi moms and dads. Welcome to the parenting without religion group here at A|N. Please feel free to post an introduction, tell us about yourself or if you'd rather not, just jump right into any discussion.

Before you get started I would like you to be familiar with our Posting Rules and Guidelines. This will help clarify what this group is and what topics are appropriate or inappropriate.

Also, you might be interested in our list of atheist related parenting resources list. This is a work in progress, if you've found something you think is a good fit please post a reply and I'll see about adding it.

If at any time you would like to contact me, the easiest way is to send a private message through my page. However, in order to send any member a PM you must first be their friend.

Thank you for joining the group, I hope you enjoy being here.

I'm back. *sheepish* Thanks for all the emails ya'll. I didn't realize how much people noticed me being here, or would miss me when I left.

I thought it started in a discussion somewhere then spilled over to the comment wall. after a while, it seemed that it should have moved behind doors, or something.
I don't like fighting.
Comment by HotMess on June 2, 2009 at 8:43pm
Honestly the fighting would have been just fine if it had been done in the Discussion Forum and not here.
I'm a fighter too: we need to hash issues like this out, but it's just too public out here.
Comment by Wendy on June 2, 2009 at 8:42pm
ah I didn't think of that...keep forgetting about the wall up there.

Hey, I'm up for a good debate anytime. This just wasn't one. At least, not by the time I started lurking. But I don't blame you at all for still wanting to respond to those remarks.

Would you all agree that for a specific discussion such as the college debate, that once it starts turning into a debate, or just a particularly focused discussion, one of the people discussing it starts a discussion, where it can continue and leave the wall free for more general comments and intros and whatnot? I don't know if that would help, but it would at least enable people to avoid the whole When Debaters Attack scenario we had going on here.
