Guidelines of FMs4Ms Discussion group

The major purpose of the FMs4Ms Discussion group is to encourage a place for discussions among our registered member about being an expat mom, this resources was set up for; asking questions on raising children in Italy, cultural differences, and even regular developmental milestones that arise as well.

This Discussion group is also a place where we post FMs4Ms events of interest to our members that registered with the Network.

The Discussion group is NOT a place sought out to self advertise your business, class, etc.  to the members of the group.  What is allowed is when a mom asks a question you can answer in a comment under the question,  if your business is related to that question.  The group was not set up to promote your business, your friends business or other businesses.  Now I know some moms are excited to know what other moms do and that can be found, along with adding your information in the files section of the group under the file called Our Moms in the Group  along with many other helpful information. Any forms of advertising will be removed with out warning.

If you have a business, class, charity, etc that you feel would be of interest to the moms email infotiscali@firenzemoms4moms.net to discuss the options. We also offer low advertising rates as well so email if you are interested in purchasing an ad for on our website and newsletter.
