Sailors talking about sailing with kids and the related issues would require more moderating? If we can survive anchor/Hunter/MacGregor debates, I would think talking about ways to entertain kiddies aboard could be managed easily enough.

Maybe I am reading Brians OP wrong.....are we talking "for the kids to talk?" or " what/how to deal with kids issues while cruising"?

If the latter, then no, it would/should not need to be moderated more. If the first, ie kids discussing with kids, then my initial quote is correct.

Cruisingdad, best wishes with your upcoming cruise! ( I assume you are headed off with kids). I have found plenty of opportunity to talk with other parents cruising with kids within the existing Sailnet forums, or by posting a particular question.However, I am sure that you could start a new forum, and people would respond.
Don't worry about kids joining in, all the kids are on Facebook anyway. Best wishes, whatever you decide. Sincerely cruisingmom ( no connection).

I've always been one strongly in favour of sailing/cruising with kids from the earliest ages, and I'm sure there are all kinds of good ideas out there on how to entertain/teach/occupy the younguns while aboard.

But given the relatively low thread count on the subject now, I wonder if a dedicated thread is worthwhile, or would it just represent more 'clutter' on the site....

Could be, though, that a dedicated thread would generate more interest.

Wow. I thought this would get more responses than it has and more interet.

Lets see what comes out over the next few days and we will try and make a decision here.

I feeel your Fear..
And the Fear of those concerned with the Welfare and Protection from this crappy world.
Anyone ever see Facebook or My Space.. Its a Meat market for Petos..and they are ON IT in force, as children..
I may be over reacting, BUT, I dont think you can be Too cautious in this regard.
Wouldnt want to have to Worry about my Grand kids on the net.. in our home, they are NOT allowed, though they are only 7 & 10.. But later it may be more difficult. the ten yr old already has a lot of TEXT stuff with a few in her school... well, she DID, till the phone was shut off..
YUP, im Paranoid as hell over this world..
Just my Extreme view..

If you encourage the blighters they'll be everywhere and into everything. There is absolutely no stopping them once they get going. What's more its rumoured that after a few years they turn into you and me. Now that is not a pretty thought.

Seriously.....I leave this one up to the parents and I guess grandparents out there. Me, I can think of nothing worse but then again I'm not absolutely convinced that cruising with adults is a winner.

Do you know that someone at our club called me a misanthrope a few weeks backs ? He was shocked that I wasn't offended.

ps - I refuse point blank to moderate an online creche.

Hey Everyone, in case it was not crystal clear, this is not meant for kids to come chat!! We went through that discussion about 2 or 3 years ago. My point was that I cannot stop it if they do. But hey... I cannot stop it now!

The point of this forum is so that we can organize all the kids sailing and cruising related stuff in one place and have a dedicated forum to the matter. We have a lot of stuff here on it already, spread around, between gneral discussion, cruising, living aboard, and seamanship.

I personally thought it was a good idea, but I also respect other's opinions to the contrary. My only fear/concern, is one more forum and whether it would be populated.

And fuzzy - BITE ME! No, bite sailingdog. I don't want raibes!

Anyways, hope that clears things up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'm for it. It would be good to join and get an email when someone posts to that forum, like the email I get now with the Long Island forum.

Regards,
