Life of Dad Rule #1: Be Respectful to Everyone

Being respectful doesn’t mean that we all have to agree.  Disagreement is what makes a place like Life of Dad fun to visit, but every Life of Dad user must treat others with respect.  Do not bully or egg on conflict.  Do not argue for the sake of argument.  Do not troll threads or groups, writing comments to get people upset.  Do not bash anyone for being different than you or for thinking differently than you.  We will delete anyone’s account who does any of these things…and we’re busy people, so we’ll delete you quickly.

Life of Dad Rule #2: Do Not Post Inappropriate Pictures or Other Content

Life of Dad is about the experience of fatherhood, so naturally many users will be posting pictures of their kids.  That’s good of course, but we need some ground rules about that.  Do not post pictures of nudity, which includes pictures of your kid in the bathtub or something similar.  Even if it’s funny or cute, pictures like that are awkward and problematic.  Do not post pictures of kids who are not your kids.  Do not post any pictures or other content that is intended to ridicule someone.  Do not post anything vulgar.  If Life of Dad had a rating like a movie, it would PG or PG-13.  Keep your posts in that area of good taste.  Your profile will be deleted if you don’t follow these rules.

Life of Dad Rule #3: Do Not Spam or Promote Your Business

We want Life of Dad to be a great community where users can connect around the adventure of fatherhood.  Do not spam Life of Dad with content that is meant to promote something for personal gain.  Do not promote your business.  If you would like to enter an official promotional relationship with us, please email tom@lifeofdad.com and we will work with you to help your product or endeavor gain a large amount of attention through our official channels.  Any user who spams on Life of Dad will be immediately deleted.
