In your OP, you stated

In doing so, you brought up "non-pharma" in the first place.

Your thread title, as written, did not explain what the thread was about, and your comment seemed to clarify.

As stated in ADDF site guidelines:

Good Subject Titling
:
* As ADD Forums grows, it becomes increasingly important to properly title the subject of new threads. People find the threads that they are interested in mostly by scanning the titles, even when searching with our site search engine. Titles/Subjects that are leading are not allowed. ADD Forums Moderators may change the title of any thread to assist in describing the content of the thread without notifying the member who started the thread. In some cases, a moderator may also contact the member if it is evident the member is having a problem with titling to give tips.
If you can suggest a better, informative title for the thread, I will happily change it.

If you have further questions about this or other moderator actions, please take it up with moderators via PM. As you are also aware:

Point taken.

But I did not want the pharma verse non pharma to be represented in the thread title.

I just wish there was somewhere we could discuss non pharma treatment without having to specify non pharma treatment, like treatment that is not pharmacy related is secondary. Especially when focusing on development and treatment for a hyperreactive/hypersensitive temperament before the age of 4, before medication is not even a treatment option, yet.

Re: Riding a bike with no hands: Non-pharmaceutical treatment approaches.

Proof is in the pudding.

I will find some else to discuss.

Re: Riding a bike with no hands: Non-pharmaceutical treatment approaches.

Then you have to try a new forum.
But be ready for hard work, a lot of hard work promoting it.

If you have the time and passion , go for it.

Thanks.

I never decided where I was going to discuss, yet.

I am just tired of discussing about everything but.

Like you now.

It is easy to start a new forum , but getting new users, that may be a real challenge.
I'm sure there are hundreds of in-active forums started with good intentions ,but the effort to promote it is underestimated.

Every person trying to sell $4.99 book , has a blog and a forum sort off,

There are subforums for that!

These subforums may include:
- Miscellaneous Treatments
- Meditation/Spirituality
- Organizational Tips
- Exercise/Nutrition
- Coaching/Counseling/Etc.
and for early childhood development before age 4, specifically,
(if focusing on applied/practical matters) General Parenting, or
(if focusing on general neurodevelopmental hypotheses/theory) Open Science and Philosophical Discussion (for a more free-wheeling format) or Scientific Discussion (if based primarily on, and referring frequently to, published scientific literature).

You needn't qualify your discussion as "non-pharmaceutical" unless you choose to do so, and you explicitly wish to preclude discussion of medication in the thread.

I think what OP is saying that it always turns into meds discussion regardless of where it is posted. or suggestion that meds are the best way to go .

To the extent that that sometimes occurs, members can either ignore posts about meds if they're not interested or (if medication discussion is derailing the thread) members can use the "report" button to report off-topic posts.

Mentioning that the OP cannot use, or wishes not to use, medications, or explicitly stating that the thread is intended to discuss a particular form of treatment, may also help prevent digressions.

Because the forum consists of members with a wide variety of experiences, it is likely that any given thread will attract a variety of perspectives. You can look at that as a risk or as a benefit.

Good point,

can you make him a moderator for that kind of section-thread , if he would like to? If he's so passionate about the topic? If he would accept?

Moderation decisions are made by the site administrators (Andi and Andrew).

Moderators' "duties include keeping the peace as well as enforcing [site guidelines]", not promoting particular viewpoints about treatments or arbitrarily restricting the topics of discussion (within existing site guidelines).

While many of us are indeed passionate about certain topics, in our capacity as moderators, we strive to moderate fairly, even when our personal views conflict with those of other members.

(In the event that members believe we have failed on that count, please send a PM to Andi and Andrew describing your concerns, and they will respond.)

That wouldn't be a problem if he was a moderator for that specific section only, that deals with non pharma treatment , would that be possible ?

Or you are maybe worried that he may be too passionate?
Why not give him a chance?
His intentions are good, he has a long history here.

Come on,,,

for free too,,,come on,,,,,,,,,
