    Being the parent of an older teen or adult child can be just as challenging as many other stages of parenthood. This group is for parents of young people age 17 and up. I hope that this space can be a safe place to vent and process these challenges, while also soliciting feedback from other parents who are in the trenches or who have been there and made it through this struggle . I also hope that we can rejoice with one another when we manage to muddle through these challenges. I'm hoping that there are some other parents out there who can offer commiseration, gentle suggestions, support, and empathy when I'm struggling and I'd love to offer some to someone else who's in the same boat. I picture this group as a circle of people, sitting around a fireplace, sipping tea, coffee or hot cocoa. When our sister weeps, we hold her hand. When one shares a victory, we rejoice together. When someone asks for feedback, we gently mention things that may have worked for our family or something we read that might be of help.

    This group is public.  All new members must be approved before they can post, but the posts in the group are viewable to the public. ABOUT THE GROUP: When Orthodox Christianity is mentioned on the WTM forums, people have questions about the ancient Church. What is it? What does it teach? How is it different from Protestantism or Roman Catholicism? How does it relate to the Judaism of the Old Testament? This social group is a safe place to ask Orthodox Christians and inquirers about Orthodox Christianity. Orthodoxy is rich and deep--it will take a lifetime (and more) to understand and experience. You can start your journey here. We don't debate or argue, but have sincere and genuine conversations. To join this social group, click Join Group and also send a PM to the moderator.

    A place to discuss politics from any political viewpoint from any part of the world. Please remember that we don't all come into this with the same perspective. Here are the current rules: -Treat each respectfully. -No ad hominem attacks of other group members. -Do not tell other people how to vote. We are here to discuss politics, not the voting decisions of group members. -Don't bother SWB. -You don't have to read any thread that offends you, but feel free to present your point of view. -Posters whose comments do not engender thoughtful discussion may be removed from the group.

    <p>Welcome to a place where Orthodox Christian homeschoolers can share resources and ideas for active learning and academic education. Please join us as you are able. This is not a forum for discussion of Orthodox doctrine and practice -- visit the Exploring Orthodox Christianity group for that. If you have few posts on the forum, please private message the moderator a bit about yourself and your interest in this social group. </p> <p> </p> <p>"Of all holy works, the education of children is the most holy." ~ St. Theophan the Recluse ~</p>

    <p>"The word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and their marrow, and is able to discern thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Heb. 4:12) I want to keep this group for Christians to feel free to quote scripture, etc. as it applies to their parenting. Any techniques or books that speak to you are welcome. I am currently very impressed with Boundaries for Kids. Raising Godly Tomatoes was the first parenting book I read with a Biblical view, but other views are more than welcome. I actually disagree with the emphasis on spanking. Disagreeing with aspects of the book as it applies to your individual children is acceptable. ie: (That does not work for us, but it is okay if it works for you.)</p>

    <p>Whether we call them crockpots or slow cookers, whether we use them them for soups or desserts, we are united in our loathing of cream of cr*p soup as an ingredient.</p> <p> </p> <p> So, post about your crockpot or slow cooker here. Post your tried and true, or tried and goo recipes. But most of all share your abilities to cook a great meal in an electric device without having to resort to cream of cr*p soup.</p>

Let's respect that.</p>

    <p>The "Red Flags" title is a bit tongue-in-cheek btw.</p> <p> </p> <p> The purpose of this group is to list texts and literature books and any bias or content that would be helpful to know about when choosing books for our families.</p> <p> </p> <p> Discussion about wether or not something has bias is not allowed. Everything has a bias and it's own pov. Our goal is just to list them.</p>
