As our group has grown, we have been found a need to have all of our rules and expectations in one place. Our house rules now are posted in the group description and in the files tab. Here is the text:
FB Secret Group for Meetup's 2014/15 East Valley MaMa's. If you were invited by your friend to join this group, your request will not be accepted unless you have an approved Meetup profile and dues are paid. Link: http://www.meetup.com/2014-2015-New-Babies-...
We are the East Valley mothers of children born in 2014 & 2015, who have come together in an environment of respect and support. Please use this forum to keep in touch between Meetup events and to discuss all topics regarding parenting.
Keep It Clean
If you wouldn’t show it to your kids, don’t share it with us. And you know what we mean.
Keep It Relevant
Please keep all sales and advertising on your own personal platforms; this group is here to help us support each other, not to provide a platform to sell items or services, except as posted on the monthly FSOT/ISO thread.
Keep It Tidy
One post for sale/trade/in search of items will go up each month. Please use this platform for all “ISO/FSOT” items. This is an opportunity for our mothers to post items available for sale or to offer services. Admin will remove content not posted on the monthly post.
“Click bait posts” are not appropriate, as well as oversharing content that can be perceived as spammy. Admin will remove the random and irrelevant content.
Please use the search feature before asking a question of the group... Many of them have already been asked and answered in the past year.
Keep It Drama Free
We all come from different backgrounds and have different opinions. Disagreement is inevitable. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Abuse or bullying will not be tolerated.
Keep It Here
This page is a Secret Facebook Group, and a safe place for mothers to post opinions, life challenges, and pictures of their children. It is not appropriate to re-post any content or images from this page without permission from both the owner of the content AND all parties in the image.
Keep It Safe
Alcohol may be served at some of our events, please indulge in moderation. Drugs are not allowed at any of our events. We do not condone any illegal activities at our Meetups.
Keep It Healthy
Kids get sick. If you would keep them home from school or daycare, please let them stay home and get better.
Inappropriate posts may be deleted without warning. We retain the right to remove members from our group for violations of the above House Rules.
Thank you for being a great group of mothers. We are stronger for knowing each other, and we are looking forward to watching our children and our families grow together in the years to come!
