      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Recipe for getting started here at GP.com

Welcome all new members.  I know it can be confusing to start in a new forum because we all seem to have different guidelines.  I hope this post will take some of the confusion out for you.

New members MUST amass 10 posts before they can start a topic of their own. Jump into conversations around each category and get a feel of the forum, but please do not bump (reply to) old threads that are more than about three months old.

To help to amass your 10 posts so you can start your own topic in any of our forums, click on one and reply to a pinned (green thumb tack) topic.  Most of these topics are open without worry about bumping (unless they are intended for instruction only, then they may be locked).


Look around, I'm sure you can find a conversation to participate in.

Please remember not to post in threads that are more than three months old.  I think you can find plenty of interesting conversations posted in the last three months.  Also, if you choose to post INCOGNITO, those post don't count toward your 10 post minimum before opening your own thread.

Please feel free to read any and all old post to gather advise and information, but refrain from replying to those that are more than three months old.
