Guidelines for use

The Childless Stepmums Forum is designed for stepmothers to share their own experiences, learn from stepparents who've been there before and work on building a healthy relationship with children who are not their own.

In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), forum membership is open to anyone over the age of 16 and we ask that all users be responsible for their contributions. Make sure your posts are in good taste and are considerate towards fellow users.

  1. Privacy
    We do not display personal information about members and will never pass on their details to a third party. It is the user's choice to display further personal details such as their first names. To protect the safety of our members we do not allow the publication of personal information such as home addresses, telephone numbers, names of schools or workplaces. Any such posts will be deleted by the moderators.

  2. Offensive / Defamatory Language
    We may occasionally remove postings deemed to be offensive or abusive, or potentially libellous which could put the website in legal jeopardy. Users who use offensive language or act in an antisocial or unacceptable way will be banned from using the discussion board. If you wish to report a post that you find offensive, please contact us using the 'report to moderator' link at the bottom of the post.

  3. Advertising
    The Childless Stepmums Forum does not allow the promotion of commercial products or services within its message boards. Any such posts will be deleted by the moderator. If you have a website you would like us to add to our links page, please contact us directly at

  4. Board Subjects
    The forum is made up of a number of discussion boards each covering a different subject area. Pleas try to add your post in the correct forum as it will make it easier for other users to join the conversation. Occasionally the moderator may move posted threads to a more appropriate location or delete them if they wholly inappropriate within the context of the site.
