Be Nice Guidelines
We would like you to contribute your opinions and experiences to our site, in fact we would love you to do that! However, we ask you to be polite about it.
Your opinions and experiences are important to us, but not to the detriment of our other visitors or readers. If you insist on posting unfriendly, hurtful, rude or even (gasp) defamatory comments, well… we will insist on removing them and potentially blocking you from contributing in future.
In general, when thinking about posting, we would ask you to consider our editorial policies below…
There are lots of ways to be a great mom. We think most moms are trying really really hard. We’re here to help moms make decisions, and to share content from moms about lots of different experiences. We aren’t here to tell you that one way of doing things is the best way, or to tell you that “good” moms shouldn’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t…
We’re just Pro Mom, that’s what we are!
We act like our grandmother told us…
“If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Remember that old chestnut?!
At The Tot we don’t say nasty things about celebrities, or moms, or the decisions that moms make. This applies to our products (if we don’t like it we don’t sell it), our contributors and interviews, and also to our readers.
We try to do the right thing.
We’re trying to be ethical here, we really are. We don’t want to recommend products that aren’t safe or you won’t ever need. We also don’t want you to leave our site feeling upset, deceived or more anxious than when you were when you arrived!
If you think we’ve done the wrong thing, or one of our products is not as safe as we think it is, we would really like to hear from you. Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
