I recently posted a topic on here in regards to our son and daughters up n coming birthday parties. Apparently I put too much information on there, which I am in process of fixing once a MOD gets back to me about deleting the post. I didn't see how anything I posted in there was potentially dangerous, but when it was brought to my attention...(I got the memo) yeeeah okay my bad. I would however like to make mention how upsetting it is to see so many people viewed my post and the ONLY feed back I received was regarding editing my post.
Granted I can't make anyone respond to a birthday party for two young kids but com'on, I thought this site was about reaching out into the community, especially for people WHO do not know anyone out here. This isn't per se about me; it's important to US that the kids feel that connection with other kids. It's sad we haven't made those connections here yet.

I digress however... it just bothered me to see so many viewed, yet the only feed back was to EDIT my post. I'm probably better off actually getting out there into the community more than trying to connect here....

after all... 98% of the people reading this just might be crazy psychopathic serial killers...noted

I viewed the post, but don't have kids. But agree that going to the MOPS meeting on Thursday will be a great start. If you are going to the one at Little Church, then I know those ladies will really help you out and point you in the right direction.

Don't let what happened on your last thread get to you. This site was really great and then got way to "policed" and lots of people left or quit commenting on here.

For the record, I don't live in 29 Palms anymore. I MOD the site because I like this community and the people who use the site (and the ones who used to).

I'll delete the topic for you. And I'd say more like 10% are potentially crazy. But still, do you want any crazy showing up to your kid's party?

MOPS sounds like a great idea. There's another thread around here that some people commented on about what to do with small kids here in 29. I'll see if I can find it and link it.

I'd personally feel encouraged that people gave a crap enough to try and look out for you in a community where you don't know anyone. But that's totally up to you.

lots of people left or quit commenting on here.

Agreed. This is the not the same site it was when I started helping Mari MOD it.

Don't forget about the pedophiles.

My kids are older. When they were younger, I utilized the parks on the bases where we lived and the kids and I still talk to several of the people we met there. Use the resources available to you. Have you husband ask at work. It could help you get acquainted with his coworkers and their spouses and children if they have any. There are many more resources out there than the UG.

yea there are crazy people out here. And also if you are new to the area I know a lot of little kids around your kids age (mostly boys) :) I like to meet people at Dino park too, thats were I have met a lot of my friends out here. Lots of nice mommy's there 

RaeRie (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

Hell, I miss the Dino park and I'm an adult who moved away from there over a year ago.

There are a lot of facebook groups for moms and play dates. I'd try there or MOPS.

thank you for all the suggestions. :)
