Do you think only a certain "kind" of mom belongs on Cafemom?

Do you believe a step mom with no children biologically of her own should be allowed on Cafemom?  Do you believe someone who has no children at all should be on Cafemom?  What are your views on this?

  • A stepmom IS a mom, regardless of whether she has her own biological child. So is anyone in the position of providing a motherly role in a child's life (grandparent, aunt, lesbian SO). Just because someone gave birth to a child doesn't make them a "mom," its about providing love and guidance.

  • A stepmom is still a mom in my eyes. If they don't have children but are trying then they belong here as well.

  • I think that any type of mom should be on here. But if someone who isn't a mom has experience w/ kids such a teacher, caretaker, etc. then they should be welcome as well.

  • I couldn't care less. I have no idea who anybody is on this site let alone who has children. For all I know some could be old men or young children.

  • What about women who only have pets as their children?

    HA HA HA. I don't know... When I had my cat I considered him my baby but I didn't treat him like a child. I don't think so... I mean what kind of advise can they give us about children?

  • Ive seen people get on here & openly say they are not a mom & don't plan on having kids but join just to post on group forums & cause drama or lurk. IMO i think they should not be allowed to join but what can you do?This is called CAFEMOM for a reason.
