Re: Deletion[edit]

Reasons for deletion should be discussed here, before this page is possibly deleted. I don't believe a page should be deleted if the proponents of deletion cannot even put in the time or energy to explain the reasons supporting deletion.

I'm opposed to deletion, because (1) how will anything on Wikipedia ever grow if everything is deleted at first creation? and (2) the topic is relevant to the entire Bay Area, which is a significant number of people. Although called the Berkeley Parents Network, BPN is not a random, insignificant source, and it should be remain in the encyclopedia. — Emiellaiendiay 05:09, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm for deleting it. I'm not really convinced that it's noteworthy enough for Wikipedia. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 04:35, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Ginger Ogle is a self-professed geek. The mother of three doesn't knit or make scrapbooks, and she doesn't like to get involved in the PTA. She does have one interesting hobby, however.She maintains one of the most popular parenting Web sites in the nation, the Berkeley Parents Network. It's not a glitzy Web site with lots of technical bells and whistles. It doesn't accompany a glossy parents magazine with photos of cute babies on the cover.

Earlier this month, Maria was feeling desperate: alone at home with two young children and a husband who worked all hours, she was sleep-deprived and depressed. She submitted a posting about being at the end of her tether to an online parenting network. Within two days she received 27 email replies from mothers in her neighbourhood. They offered practical advice on good therapists and playgroups that would give her a break from the children, as well as many sympathetic reassurances of the...

It Takes an Online Village - Is the Berkeley Parents Network a localized version of Ann Landers? Or a substitute for much-needed family advice? Save this Article
One benefit to immigrating to the Bay Area is leaving behind relatives who can't stop offering unsolicited advice about how screwed up our lives are. Back in the day, we couldn't leave town fast enough. But then we became grown-ups and parents, and life began peppering us with a new set of deeply personal questions we didn't have answers for. Like, "What should I do -- my friend's husband is giving me the eye?" Or,...

The announcement would seem sure to strike terror in the hearts of parents everywhere: Spiderman and Angela Anaconda and Tweety Bird and Barbie and Batman and Superman may be poisoning their kids! That's basically what Oakland's Center for Environmental Health has been saying the past few months, anyway, after finding dangerous amounts of lead in soft vinyl lunch boxes, the latest status symbol in school yards everywhere.Animated character assassination aside, the...
