I'm a Mom On and Off the Internet

I am a Mom through and through. It doesn't matter where I am, I watch out for the little ones and younger people. In stores I am watching to make sure a child doesn't slip away from Mom or Dad when they are distracted. If they do I watch where they go, when their parent notices them gone, I'm the one that says they are right here or there. I never take my eyes off the child until they are back with who they are supposed to be with.

On the Internet, I try to be there to advise the lost or confused people I come across. Sometimes a young person will ask a question of a stranger, because they feel that their parents will NEVER understand. Or they are too scared to go to them with a problem. I just try to answer any questions I can or guide them away from creating more trouble for themselves. Advise them where to go for SAFE help from someone.

I used to be very involved with an Internet game which had over 100 members around the world. Some kids, some caring adults and 1 or 2 predators that were exposed and removed by the caring adults watching over this group. Myself and the other council members may have actually saved the life of a young man who was contemplating harming himself. We contacted the police in his area and they went and talked to his parents and made them aware of his state of mind. They then got him involved in church and other activities.

So no matter your age, problem, worry or question, I will do my best to advise or guide you in the right direction. If I don't have the answer, I will help you find someone who does. I promise to do my very best for any who ask. I will also pray for anyone who asks me to. I believe that prayers are answered everyday!

Thanks SantanaRex, I will check them out.<br />
<br />
Peace and happiness to you and those you care about.

There are a few poetry groups - I have stuff all over but the poetry group I joined was the I people to share their poetry group the link is below<br />

I wanted to make it clear that I did read the long version of his POEM. <br />
<br />
There are times when poetry in not fact. I write poetry and a lot of times rhyming is more important then making clear statements. I will have to write some of my own here on EP. I think I saw a I like to write poetry group.

Marji Thank you for your Positive remarks. I think you MAY have missed where I said<br />
<br />
"SantanaRex, I will look into the story you spoke of and some other things you may have wrote about and be glad to give you my feedback. I hope you don't mind if I pay attention to how other EP members responded to your thoughts. It is a way of really looking at something from both sides. Please don't feel as though I am being.... ummmm I not sure how to say what I want here. Like I said being a part of a group responsible for watching over the children of others are difficult."<br />
<br />
I do not know what the whole story WAS with the other EP members. If a person writes a story, they have the right to edit it and change it in anyway they feel is appropriate. The same as they are able to remove the posts of people who reply to them.<br />
<br />
This is my story. I am a very positive person. You have a right to your you opinions as does everyone on EP. I have nothing against anyone who is trying to protect an underage person. If you had a problem in another story and want to reply to that one it is fine.<br />
<br />
I was asked for advice and promised that I would look into it and the responses of others. I am not a stupid person who is just going to take someones word for it. I will also NOT JUDGE or CONDEMN another without having investigated and become sure about MY opinion.<br />
<br />
Maybe the post was changed because that person realized that something was being taken the wrong way or worded wrong. We all make mistakes and have a right to do what we can to correct them. That is life and that is how we grow as people.<br />
<br />
So, I am asking you to remove your negative comments about another persons story from mine. If you feel that is the right thing to do, I will edit the parts that I added that may reflect on you in a un-positive way. If you do not like what "I say" feel free to leave any comment you wish and I will respond to your questions or concerns. Thank you very much and I hope that you do not feel as though I do not respect your opinions, because I respect the opinions of everyone on ep and in my personal life. If you do not understand my issue here please feel free to message me and I will address any and all concerns you may have.<br />
<br />
Thank you and may God bless you all AND watch over the children of the world. That was the intent of MY story.

Thank you very much. I try to word things true to my feelings.<br />
<br />
I'm not sure how EP monitors these stories. I know they have several people that watch out for different things. People can flag a story if they think it may be inappropriate for younger members or any member in fact.<br />
<br />
If they did choose to pick some loyal members to watch out for dangerous activities, I think it would be a good idea to have some kind of group of lets say "EP Guardian Angels." Actually I like that name for a group like that. <br />
<br />
How I came about becoming a part of the council for the internet game I was involved in was because of my game name. It kind of encouraged the younger people to show me respect. I did not allow any foul language or cruel name calling. If I was playing, everyone behaved or they could be voted off of the squad and therefore be banned from any and all game servers connected with our squad. So if you wanted to stay on the squad, you were nice to the other members and other people that chose to play in our servers. It was not an easy job at times, but very necessary to keep a clean game going that was fun for all ages.<br />

SantanaRex, I will look into the story you spoke of and some other things you may have wrote about and be glad to give you my feedback.

<br />
The squad leader and had the names and addresses of all members under 16. I also think they had to have parents permission to join the squad.

your story is well written. I feel very much the same way as a Dad. <br />
<br />
I created a group called I believe in Lovesuckes. I wrote a story. I would be interested in your feedback. i don't want to hurt anyone - and i am not trying to hide anything or be tricky. Since you were a member of a council that helped to save a life I would very much like to know if there is a constructive supportive way that I can help. I think such a council may be needed here on EP based on some stories I was for some reason recently able to see. <br />
<br />
I believe this group is a direct result of my story and was created by someone I have great respect for so if I am out of line I would rather find out now two months into this experience rather than later. I am still figuring things out here. So any insight would be appreciated.
