The worst thing you've been told on this site?

i was once told that because i'm a single mom my son should not play soccer or be in boy scouts - it cost too much money.
so because i am single my son should not have male figures in his life like coaches and boy scout leaders.
i was blow away by that fellow moms comment

  • 1) because I am not Christian I should not have a Christmas tree. It was a statement made TO me specifically

    2) I am ignorant because I had asked a question about if Mormons sort of stick to their own for friendship and such- I had lived in Utah and found it very difficult to talk about anything but the weather with most people there

  • Honestly there haven't been many negatives comments come my way but i've seen some moms just tear into others. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs but that doesn't mean you have to be snippy about.

  • That I was a dethroned queen just trying to get my popularity back.

    That said, it was more pathetic and funny than anything else. The other poster's have had much worse

  • I don't ask a lot of questions, and when I do they are pretty light hearted, so I haven't had much in the way of negativity. I did ask for helpful information recently about something serious and I got a really insightful anwer. That's the sort of thing that sticks with me about answers.

  • I'm sure I've been called a lot, but I really don't give a shit what some anonnotroll's opinion is.

  • And you should be upset!
    You are a single mom playing two roles!
    If you feel your child should be in scouts and soccer - dang it - do it! Don't keep your son from doing EVERYTHING he sets his mind to doing!
    You are AWESOME! Always remember that!
