Attitude is Everything

So, I’m noticing that on a lot of boards or forums associated with preemies, raising children, or being pregnant, there is sometimes vulgarity and often whining or yelling.  I understand the need to release frustrations and to occasionally vent about when things are particularly bad or difficult, but I find it incredibly rude and immature when people start cussing or being vulgar to express themselves.

You can release frustrations and express concerns while at the same time being polite and respectful to readers who come across your posts.  What I hate the most is when I find a topic that I can relate to or that interests me and I open up the post to find language that is offensive and whining that brings me down.

Really, who wants to read something that makes them feel like crud?  Does it benefit anyone?  No, it only feeds the negativity about life and difficult situations that are too prevalent in our society.  Simply using words that inspire having a positive attitude about things can make a world of difference.

I’ve made it a point on my site to approach every topic as positively as possible so as to foster hope, light, and encouragement for all of my readers.  I appreciate all of you who have contributed to the wholesome and clean atmosphere with your comments and stories.  Let’s keep this site family-oriented with an atmosphere of welcoming and opened arms!

Afton Mower About Afton Mower

After Mower (UT) lost her firstborn son at 21 weeks.  Her daughter was born a year and a half later at 27 weeks.  The NICU was overwhelming and isolating and it was through those two experiences she was led to found this social hub for parents to find the support they needed. Afton also gave birth to another daughter, born two days overdue after four months of strict bedrest. She believes it is a tender experience to hold a special baby in your arms when his spirit returns to his heavenly home, a miracle to watch tiny babies survive the risks of prematurity and a blessing to hold a healthy full-term baby after months of difficulty and sacrifices.
