Quoting chicken13:

I can't seem to add photos to a post since upgrading to IOS 8.0.2

Hi,

We have checked into this issue and it seems to be a bug with IOS 8.  

Apple is currently working on the bugs associated with their new operating system.  We are hoping that they will fix this issue quickly!

Thank you for being a great member of CafeMom!

Hi,

It's easy to start a group.

Go to the 'Groups & Conversations' tab at the top of any page, in blue.
Select 'Create a Group' button towards the bottom of the drop down menu.
Choose the category that best describes your group: Personal, Common Ground, or Local.
Enter your group name.
Upload your group's picture (optional).
Describe your group in the Short and Long Description boxes.
Add tags (keywords) for your group.
Enter a URL for your group's homepage.
Click 'Next'.
The next page will allow you to edit your privacy settings.
Once you are done choosing your privacy settings, click 'Continue'.

Congratulations! You have created your own group.

Be sure to head on over to the Groups Resource Center. Owners and Admins of some of CafeMom's largest and most active groups are in the Groups Resource Center and they have tons of information to share with new group owners.

Enjoy!

 I feel very alone, even though many of us are step parents.  I wish I would have been able to have been with my husband all along. I have full custody of my children from my previous, but my husband does not. He has a 7 year old that we only see every other weekend. It's very depressing and frustrating to me at imes and I cope as best as I can. I feel like there's this other person in our relationship and I have to deal with a different parenting ideas..that shine through. My kids are very kind, loving, and get along pretty well with others. She...on the other hand can be very rude, bossy, and has a(I hate to say it) spoiled attitude. She doesn't get punished at her house and gets absolutely everything she wants. She has a brand new 500.00 I pad when she was 5......I find it very difficult sometimes..as I try to treat them all equal and love them all the same. She just doesn't seem accepting of anything, if it's not ritsy and over the top. Any advice please help?
