Welcome to Discussions – TECA’s online message board! Discussions is a place where you can post your questions, share your resources, and give and get support from other parents of 2e kiddos. We invite you to join any of the Discussions in progress, or if there is a topic you would like us to add, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
We created Discussions so that parents of 2e kids could be part of a supportive, caring and non-judgmental community where they feel safe, accepted and understood. To that end, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines when posting:
Respect One Another: Please refrain from using language that is—or that could be construed to be—offensive toward others including biased, racist, sexist, and heterosexist comments and/or jokes. Also refrain from derogatory and/or sarcastic comments and jokes directed at religious beliefs, disabilities, and age.
No YELLING or Flaming! Using bold upper-case letters is bad form. When offering criticism, it should be constructive and well-meaning. Please, no tantrums. (Leave those to our kids!) Rants directed at any other contributor are simply unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
Language: Social media has spawned many shortcuts that are not part of everyday language. Please note that not everyone knows what things like TTYS (talk to you soon) or ROTFL (roll on the floor laughing) mean.
