Has anyone ever really helped you on Cafe Mom?

I know that dullscissors helped me with a huge hair question, and that I have gotten several great food ideas from here. Has anyone ever really given you the best advice you ever got? If so who, when and what?

  • I think I will just say, yes and more times than I care to name.


    People in general on CM have helped me to have a little broader look at our world and the people and problems and joys in it.
    They have helped me to view people and issues and things in ways I may not have come to on my own. In general I think the people on CM have helped me to grow just a little. For that I don't need specifics.

  • I don't know about the best advice ever, but I have gotten some cooking tips from a few members, some kid advice from a few. I've been around a while so I am sure I have gotten many tips here without knowing or remembering who exactly gave them.

  • I think the biggest help has been the support & finding other mom's going through similar situations as I am. Being a mostly sahm, the interaction w/ other mom's has been great!! So I guess the answer would be that I've gotten helpful advice, maybe not the best ever, but yes, I've found most the mom's on here to be helpful in their own ways!!

  • Even the rude ones can help you to see others' point of view.

  • Why are you going anon for this? Wouldn't you want those who've helped you to know you're thanking them?

    But, yes, I'm friends with a few members. and, even though I've never met them IRL, I value their friendship.

  • I am going anon, because I don't want who I am to sway what you all would answer.
