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

  • lets see, I have had so much support but as usual, there have been some negatives.. my son wouldn't take my Milk, i tried for 2 months, didn't matter what I ate, bland diet, no dairy, etc, he cried and screamed the whole time, colic, allergies, eczema - unlatched ( did not have a latching problem, actually made me bleed for how good he sucked ) anyway, I was told I was a failure as a mother because I "gave up" on feeding my own child the most important thing I can give my child.

  • Worst I've been called is a troll. But then, in that particular post I was trolling (and owned up to it afterwards).

  • I had one Mom tell me that I need to accept the fact that my children lie and that if they could trust me that they would tell the truth.

    WTF I wasn't even asking about the lying I was looking for creative ways of punishing that didn't include spanking.

  • i do not get too much flack from members, mostly just from admin pic poofers

    maybe that i when i post a question
    i use such poor grammar and spelling / typo errors
    that she always skips over my questions
    because she can not understand what i am trying to say

    funny, because she posted that IN one of my questions

  • I don't remember exactly what I was called, but there was a mom who had created a convenient personal definition of "lie" whereby she could claim she "NEVER lied to her child" while lying to her kid about Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. When I tried to point out to her that by most definitions of "lying," she WAS lying to her child about Santa, I was accused of being a Christmas-crushing grinch.

  • When I asked a question about being induced (what to expect), I got the most bitchy comments! Things like "you can expect your baby to have serious problems"...and on and on. I had almost 70 responses like that. I had explained in the question that I was at 12 days past due and that didn't seem to matter. It was pretty bad. It seems like there are always those who leave little jabs on random questions.
