    Default Shout out to BBB after hiatus and time on FB!!

    This is a shout out to y'all on BBB.

    I took a hiatus from BBB - partly because it started to suddenly get harder to log in due to some automatic change of settings issues - and have mostly been on FB groups for the past few months.

    I just came back this morning and it is SO nice to read all your posts and responses. I am struck by how much more comprehensive and thoughtful some are compared to FB groups and how 'real' it feels even though this group is anonymous.

    I do think there is a place for FB groups - especially special interest groups and local ones - and it's certainly more convenient than BBB (when I'm already on FB anyway) and reaches a huge number of people... so I will also continue posting on FB groups. BUT... I am SO GRATEFUL reading BBB today. It's like grabbing a coffee with an old friend. While FB group posts are short and fast and feel like one-sided questions and answers that sometimes mount in the hundreds, but are often incomplete, BBB conversations with you seem slower, comprehensive, more thoughtful, create more closure, are more satisfying.

    Thank you!!!!

    I have missed it too! I learned so much about kids and life in general on this forum. It makes me so nostalgic to see familiar posters and then realize their kids are now teenagers as I joined 7.5 yrs ago!

    Maybe the stars have aligned to bring us back. I logged on last night for the first time in years because Inwanted feedback on a hard situation I thought only this board could give good advice on. DD is now 12. Time flies. Hope everyone is well!

    Welcome back!

    I agree that the support, advice, and everything else is so much more personal, thorough, caring and useful than facebook groups.

    Welcome back!!! There's a lot of posters who have disappeared who I think about and wonder how they're doing!

    Hi!!! Yes I rely on this group for its support and advice on all topics and not just parenting. Do we still post when the baby goes off to college?!
