And I agree it's not for everyone and the disappearance of the mods has made this whole place weird.

Hey @Sonja, I'm sorry, I had a post all ready to go and I got gutless and decided to stay out of it all. I'm feeling the same as you I think - I'm all for a good debate and open to all points of view, but there comes a time when drilling down around the same points becomes tedious for everyone.
It really is weird without the mods. And people who are lurking please come back, because I really do love this community so much and I think I'd be a little bit lost without it...

Lurkers definitely need to post more. Otherwise this place feels like a side show for people who are bored.
Mods need to take back control of the direction of here.
Or if they truly are over it too appoint new ones.

I would post more but I find the threads less to my interest now. Maybe that's because I don't have babies anymore either. There used to be heaps of more current affair and social interest threads but they have either waned or end up closed or removed because people don't know how to play fair.

@HeavenBlue huge congratulations
@Sonja please don't go. I love reading your posts and learn so much from you. You've also helped me so much recently with your honestly about the difficulty of parenting.
I agree the absent mods has made the hub a little off.
The hub is keeping me sane at the moment. I would like to start some chatty threads but my anxiety is a little crazy at the moment so I hold back for fear of being unheard - whilst my rational self knows it wouldn't be personal I don't think I'd cope right now!

I am super proud of my DS (well almost) & need to brag about him as I can't tell anyone we know since it's all a bit hush. Even though he already has a small $250 scholarship from his high school next year and usually would not be entitled to another, his primary school has awarded him a $500 RSL scholarship (so others aren't meant to know). I have been assured that it has not just been my financial position but that as far as the school is concerned he has more than earnt it - our financial position just meant that it was a consideration when it otherwise wouldn't have been.
The not so sure part about being proud - he initially told his teacher he didn't want it as he doesn't agree with war which in his mind the RSL represents, and then he didn't want it because he would have to miss kanga cricket day where he gets to teach younger kids how to play cricket to be presented with the scholarship. Fortunately the RSL has agreed to allow him to not be at the presentation so he can fulfill his leadership responsibilities at school.

I often can't be bothered taking the time to say anything anymore...just read and move on. Or have my say and then leave the thread and not go back to it after constantly having my posts brutally picked apart one by one (although this hasn't happened since I told the main person doing this to leave me alone).
It is weird without the mods. Where are they? Aren't mods supposed to be active on a forum to help keep things moving? I'm beyond the baby/toddler stuff and have been for a while. It seems that after that stage there's not much left here. It's a shame. I'd like to have somewhere to go to anonymously discuss parenting concerns and ideas beyond the baby/toddler phase....but there doesn't seem to be anywhere for it. The social interest threads were good, but they've died off completely.
