Hi everyone,

More and more, many moms are signing up for CafeMom because they want advice and information - from real moms -- on questions dealing with their kids - especially toddler or preschool age.

One thing we are doing as a Cafemom team is going through the great conversations you have already posted in the group to find your best advice on common questions.

At the same time, we want YOU to get involved right now and help us create the largest library of real mom know-how and advice ever created. This is really just the beginning but if things go well in this step you will see a much larger effort across CafeMom to get quality answers from all different kinds of moms.

So, with Toddlers & Preschoolers, we're starting with 10 questions - see the links below.

What we want you to do is look at the questions and share your personal experience or philosophy on how you have - or would -  handle the given situations. Don't feel like you need to answer each one - just the ones where your wisdom or experience might help others.

There are many different parenting styles that work for different moms. We want to hear from you.  What do YOU think works best?

Thanks for taking the time to help other moms. If this is successful, we'll be doing lots more of this - both in Toddlers & Preschoolers and around the site.

I LOVE this idea :) :).

  I would say put one about preschool curriculum for those that are homeschooling (at least resources if we can).

There was a great post in another group here with dosing information for common medicines that i could see being useful here :).
