I am not sure if this would be a good idea or not,but has anyone ever suggested having a specific forum for parents who have discovered their child's "infantile" interests.In the short time I've been here at ADISC,quite a few members have either been "found-out" or have wanted to disclose their *B/DL interests to their parents.Most recently,Baby Jester and Lizzie have had to deal with this subject.Does anyone think that a forum where the parents could ask questions/get answers might help?It could be a requirement that everyone posting in this type of forum would have their posts 'Moderated' to prevent anyone,wether with intent of malice or not,from making matters worse between the parents and their offspring.Just a thought,what do you think?

Well having the thread moderating to keep parents from seeing things, wouldn't help that much, since they would be able to see other things...I also don't think this site would be best to show parents, since there are things that they probably shouldn't

It'd probably be a better idea to have a wiki page on it rather than another sub-forum on here.

I meant 'Moderated' so a Pedo,D_eker-type individual could not interject anything into a posting that would definately signal danger to an already worried parent.There are some topics here that a parent may find objectionable,but that goes for nearly everywhere on the internet.Compared to most other sites out there,ADISC is a singular exception.This site,for the most part,casts *B/DL's in a positive light.I have found that the people here are not one-dimensional,diaper-freaks.The people here are fairly typical,every-day people that just happen to have an interest in diapers as one of the many other aspects of their lives.I was ,and I still am,just trying to think of someway to help these parents understand that their children are alright,a bit different than the majority,but alright none-the-less.

Maybe parents that sign up for this forum would be restricted to only particular areas of the site, much like newer members?

....

However, I've had personal experience with my parents and this website. All they had to do was look over my shoulder to see what I was doing. If they wanted to know something, they could have just asked me and I could have shown them the appropriate posts/threads.

It sounds like a good idea, but I'm not sure it would get enough use out of it to be worth the effort.

In all honestly, I still think there is too much content on here that if I were a parent (that knew nothing about it), would not like to witness if my child claimed they were an infantilist. The Gallery for starters, plus a select few threads would raise a few alarm bells for me, not to mention the overall nature of this fetish. For a parent to come here seeking out what their child is into, I really don't think this is quite the place.

Although, if they were willing to understand and learn about it, then I have no problems in helping them out and answering questions, provided they come across as legit. But the problem I see is that they will come here, view certain threads or sections of this site and get a false view of what we are about, which would only prove to enhance their insecurities about it all.

In that regard, I don't think a "parents forum" would be all that useful. Besides, how many parents do we get here seeking help anyway? Not many, if any. Nevertheless, I do feel there should be something that parents can read so their impression of the whole thing isn't a clouded judgement based off the site's user-contributed content. Perhaps something in the way of a sticky, or just another out-of-the-way part of the site so the flow for all the regular members here isn't ruined.

Also, just as a final note: people here seem fairly adamant about not creating new forums unless they are absolutely necessary. Considering we don't get many parents asking for help, this isn't a dire case and a new forum (or even a sub-forum) is not required.

It sounds interesting and good but I think once it's put into action it will be a bad idea.

Not necessary. Perhaps a page for parents or something who find the site, but not a forum. A good thing would be for some of the ABs and adult DLs, especially ones who are parents themselves to be available to talk to parents who find this site, and make it easier to get to get to the 'for parents' links.

No no no... bad idea. Typically parents who are presented with their child's infantilistic desires are going to go into knee-jerk total lockdown mode b/c they think the kid is some sort of sicko pervert who needs a psych evaluation. Showing them this site with any kind of information to try and educate them is just going to get said kid banned from the internet altogether.

Agreed.

Both of my parents know and my dad would be the only one who would even agree to such a thing. But I don't think he would since there's no point to, I am 20 years old now not 15 or 16. Also I am not sure what he would gain from such a thing, its a funny idea for our parents to talk to each other but really that is a fantasy. I wouldn't see anything useful coming out from such a thing.

That said it could make for a cool story.

Guess what. Adisc, on a meta-level, does more for the community by presenting it honestly, warts and all than it ever could by whitewashing it. If you removed the core content that unites us all - an involvement in the ab/tb/dl world (first-hand or, in a few cases, third hand) - Adisc would represent a pretty good cross-section of the population in general. We have wise and stupid, healthy & sick, religious & atheist members in nearly direct proportion to the general population - that is, as a group, we are pretty normal. Any parent coming here should be reassured, about *b/dl-ism in general, and the site in specific, that our community is no worse in its leanings, preachings, or as an example than a diverse group of, say,Christians, gamers, undergraduates, or redheads. As opposed to websites of neo-Nazis, child-pornographers, or cocaine-users.

Adisc contains high levels of sociological truthiness.

I would consider a child safer here, than in a high school of the same membership-size. All information is subject to scrutiny, for one thing; persons can't be ganged-up-on or otherwise abused in secret. We have effective systems of both group-pressure and individual authorities' actions. We have sophisticated and effective and fair systems and methods of mentoring, encouraging, recognizing, tutoring, socializing, applauding, playing, and leveling our playing fields. (Yay playing fields.)

We can only hope the opinions of parents about Adisc are based on 2 things: a decent survey of the site, not a sudden judgement (or worse, prejudgement,) and, having come to an informed opinion, making a decision, not whether Adisc is good or bad per se, but whether a relationship between their child and Adisc is good or bad, that is, appropriate or not.

Parents forums if created, which I strongly doubt it would ever be created, should be at a completely different URL completely unrelated. I guess one thing I could do would be to create one later in life when I have a server, and have webspace, maybe try to explain it to them, not in a static web page but in a dynamic forum system. I would have to do the same things as ADISC and have a bunch of rules and have the name fairly un *B/DL related. I don't think I could do much more good than convincing them that they don't need to seek help, but I suppose that would be my goal. For Wives / Husbands / Significant others / n' parents.

Silliness. If anywhere, subforums on "my pottytrained little bundle of joy lkes diapers at a late age" will appear at parenting sites; discussion will occur among their members. There even may appear a whole site dedicated to it; but not here, please not here. Not the place. Don't need a section of people used to being in charge of kids and being where they are a minority with a smaller voice and not the final say on things. We don't need a sub-community of our own forum telling us we are wrong, sick, needing therapy, and have fingers waggled at us by our own members, and newbies at that.

We have parents, who join in. Not all parents are card-carrying detractors of us or the things we stand for. A perant can give their views a single member and be dealt with: honoured, debated, drummed out of town on a rail, tarred and feathered, as appropriate.
