Dear Mods,

I have a little suggestion here.

Just wondering if it is feasible to start a sub folder here ~ perhaps under "others" dedicated to parenting?
There are lots of forums out there dedicated to parenting no doubt, most of which however are female dominated.

Males tend to feel awkward posting there and some may even be seen as chee ko peks, for camping in a female dominated environment.

This parenting folder can benefit the MCF community by offering a channel  

- For experienced fathers to contribute their knowledge
- For would be fathers (like myself now) to learn from real life experiences instead of textbook examples

It is also an excellent channel to hear the muses, gripes, joys, trials, involvements, know-hows, mostly from a father/male's perspective.

Please consider, I'm pretty sure this enables fathers and would be fathers to build cohesion and supports the aims of developing healthy and resilient forumers through a community channel.

cheers

Didn't realise the usefulness of it till I go thru this myself.

I hope the mods would consider this and it would still benefit potential daddies.

In the event that the mods do not support your suggestion, might I suggest that you start a thread on "parenting tips by fathers, for fathers" or something along those lines to get the ball rolling.

Not sure if the mods are for this...

 

IMHO, mcf has become a chap pa lang forum these days... Think 70% non car related...So to have a parenting section???

 

There are other forum like kiasuparents, Singaporemotherhood that caters to parenting related stuff....

 

Then again I'm not the admins / mods...

Well, if men's hobbies warrent a section of its own, I don't see why parenthood is of less importance. Those not interested can always choose not to visit, isn't it?
Being 70% non-car related has became MCF's DNA, which ensures that it has survived till now with continual interest.

What we have here under parenthood need not be the usual kinda topics as seen in normal parenting forums, rather it is more of a male skewed topics, now.... won't that be welcoming?

Lite and Easy see topics splattered everywhere without classification. Makes it harder to just zoom into information when needed. Just my opinion.
