… And I’d love your input. Any thoughts? What would you like to see added, removed or improved?
While I’m in the early design stages, please think about what currently works, what doesn’t, and especially what I can do to improve your experience on the site.
Questions to consider:
- When you visit the site, do you find what you’re looking for?
- Do you have any suggestions about how you’d like to see posts organized?
Other specifics I’d love you to weigh in on:
Do you (or would you) use this forum? In recent years, it has been used only minimally and, to be honest, it is an administration nightmare because of the spam “users” constantly applying.
However, I love being able to offer a place where parents and professionals can find like-minded respectful care enthusiasts in their cities across the globe. One idea I’m considering is removing the discussion topic threads entirely and leaving just the “RIE-Inspired Parents, Caregivers and Preschools Connect” and “Parents Connect Locally” (which is currently only visible to registered users). It would still require maintenance work on my end, and I’m always crushed for time, so I’d love to know if you would actually use this service.
Along with the new articles and podcasts I will continue to offer free of charge, I also have two Amazon bestsellers: Elevating Child Care: A Guide to Respectful Parenting and No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame and a busy telephone consulting service. I’m also developing an exciting new audio product (more on that soon). Are there any other services or products that would interest you? I welcome your ideas!
If you have any thoughts or opinions, please leave feedback as a comment on this post. I can’t promise to respond to every comment, but everything will absolutely be read and carefully considered.
I look forward to your insights and thank you for taking the time to share them with me!
