    Default Forum for parents of older kids

    I know, I know...it's baby bargains. But so many of us cannot seem to tear ourselves away from this wonderful community! It would be awesome to have a forum for parents of school-aged kids...even more awesome to have it broken out by elementary, middle and high school (bag over head - yes I have a middle and high schooler!).

    Since the support and commiseration around these parts is so functional, I'd love to see something continue for school-aged kids!

    Yes, OK, mine's only 2 but I have no idea how much longer I'll hang around either.

    I'd love to see something like this, too. I know many of us in the Lounge have elementary-age kids (and older!).

    Sounds awesome, but the "older" forums never really seem to catch on. So everyone just sticks around here. Lol

    me too! I'd love to see something for older kids. I have a soon-to-be first grader (and a toddler too), and would like to connect w/ other moms of school-aged kids.

    Add me to that list as well. I have a soon to be first grader, and a 2 yr. old. I don't plan on leaving anytime soon!

    Great idea! My oldest is going to be going into 3rd grade, but my youngest is just turning 3. So, I still like coming here, but it's still mostly the under-preschool crowd. Designated folders specific to elementary, middle school, high school and even college would be a nice addition. The BBB is just so awesome that we don't want to leave.

    I am embarrassed to say how old my baby is

    I would welcome another folder for specific questions, but I know it would take time to train us to use it!

    College Bargains, anyone?
