Before you submit any blog, article, post, comment, video, content or any other material (each, a “Submission”), please read these rules and conditions (the “Terms”). If you use this website (this “Website”) in any manner, including, but not limited to by posting or otherwise submiting any Submission, you agree to follow the Terms (as the Terms may be amended from time to time). Further, you agree that you are bound by the Terms (as they may be amended from time to time).
Guidelines for inclusion of blogs:
While there is no length required for submission, we prefer one or two pages at most. For safety reasons, blogs SHOULD NOT include your name. However, blogs should include a pseudonym or your initials. Ideally, it would also be useful if you include the state you reside in, your age and if you are a male or female. This information may help parents in selecting appropriate blogs to use with their own children. If you are under the age of 18, please DO NOT include any information that would be able to be used by someone to identify you.
How do we choose which Submissions to publish; do we edit Submissions?
We look for blogs that will be useful for parents to have meaningful discussions with their teens. They can be about any topic that is meaningful to you. We reserve the right to not publish any Submission. We reserve the right, with or without notice, to edit any submission, either before, or after publishing. We reserve the right to remove any Submission, with, or without, notice.
Will you tell me if you post a Submission?
We will try our best to read all blogs that are submitted, and we will try hard to let you know if we post your blog. Please do not be angry if we do not reach out to you. Please check back often and see if your blog was posted.
