A WONDERFUL website for mums
Author Name: Courtney
Advantages: Great atmosphere, connect with people of similar interests, places for every topic
Disadvantages: Spend way too much time on there, bad reviews on the net
I disagree with the afore mentioned post. I have found BnB to be nothing but a great source of help and friendship since joining when I was pregnant. I have met many good friends on this site that I love dearly. Occasionally something will slip through the lines; a bitchy call out post or a troll, but more often than not it is very helpful and a great place to socialise online. There are many worse parenting sites out there, BnB is not one of those sites.
Sometimes bluntness over the Internet is taken as bitchiness when in fact this is no the case; if someone is disagreed with they may defend themselves in such a manner that appears rude, but in reality how much tone can you convey online?
There is a section called Girly Sanctuary however it is not all about 'bashing' ex members, or bringing people down, it is about discussing non-parenting related things and meeting like minded people. Back-trotting (bringing up posts from a different time or place on the site) is heavily mandated and NOT allowed, if this happens, it is to be reported.
I've had a run in with an admin (Wobbles) once, and only because my comment came across as snarky. Other than that the admin, team and techs all take very good care of the place and keep it running as smoothly as possible.
My thought would be that the 2 previous reviewers have been burned and shunned because of their own action.
Summary: A great all round website, designed to help mothers and others with problems they face in life.
