Why This Community Exists
is the official community of the
publication. It’s a place where
those who are raising the next generation
can connect with each other, learn from each other and ask questions while being their authentic selves.
We’re committed to making this community warm and safe person for everyone and so we’d love for you to take a look out our community guidelines below. If you have any questions, please reach out!
If you're invited to join the Modern Parent Slack Community, we ask that you take some time to read the community guidelines below
Please set up your profile, upload a fantastic photo and create a short and sweet bio.
Introduce yourself and tell the #introudction room a little about what you do :)
If your favorite topic isn’t being discussed, please bring it up! Lots of topics under the sun of parenting.
To foster more togetherness we ask everyone use their real names. We want this to be a real community supporting real people!
The Short Version
Be respectful of other people! We know parenting as topic and as a personal endeavor can elicit strong reactions. With that said, you should do your best to presume good intent and as often as possible, make others feel heard and respected. Lastly, if anyone ever makes you feel unwelcome in the community notify an administrator and we’ll immediately look into the issue.
The Long Version
The Modern Parent Slack is an intentionally positive community that recognizes and celebrates parents and the diversity of skills, talents, experiences, cultures, and opinions that they bring to our community.
The Modern Parent Community is an inclusive environment, based on treating all individuals respectfully, regardless of gender or gender identity (including nonbinary or transgender status), sexual orientation, age, disability, nationality, native language, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or career path.
We value respectful behavior above individual opinions. Respectful behavior includes:
Be considerate, kind, constructive, and helpful.
Avoid demeaning, discriminatory, harassing, hateful, or physically threatening behavior, speech, and imagery.
If you’re not sure, ask someone instead of assuming. No, really. Just ask the administrators. We’d rather hear from you than hear about something you said or did after the fact, and we are here to help.
Don’t be a bystander. Role model respectful behavior, but also help to address disrespect when you see it.
We believe that you end up with the community that you deserve. As a community we may disagree on things This is normal and healthy.
However, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of bigotry and intolerance have no place in our community. If you hold these views, you cannot join the Modern Parent Community.
