It takes a giving village...
aParently allows you to create private, invitation-only groups so you can connect and share valuable information with the community of parents at your child’s school. After all, other parents are one of the most important resources you can have. The aParently Community Guidelines are in place to help safely and respectfully grow your parent communities.
Communication is the life-blood of any village. We value diverse opinions, but please be respectful – group discussions are un-moderated, and we ask members to not post jokes, political commentary, or any subject matter that may be offensive to other members of the community.
- Use your real identity (first name is fine) and names of your children within the school community
- Refrain from using the group postings as a podium to express dissatisfaction with school’s curriculum or faculty
- Help verify joining members within your communities, and if you see someone who is not part of your community, please advise the Moderator of your group
- Flag any inappropriate content you find to help us keep the community safe. Anything obscene, hateful, illegal, threatening, humiliating, libelous, defamatory, or objectionable (in our opinion) will be taking down
- Post unauthorized commercial communications
- Use false personal information on aParently, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission
- Share your personal profile or allow anyone else to have access to your personal profile
- Collect other users’ content or personal profiles to use in any commercial activities without prior permission
- Bully, intimidate or harass any member
- Post content that: is hate speech, threatening, or pornographic, incites violence, or contains nudity or graphic/gratuitous violence
- Infringe upon the rights and privacy of a minor as it relates to any content posted by other parents
- Invite members who are not legitimate members of the community you intend to have in your groups (for example, if the member is not a parent in your child’s class, they should not be invited to the classroom groups)
