Showdowns on CafeMOM

why do we even have these? especially the cutest baby ones....that's just asking for someone to get their feelings hurt!!! People are rude enough on this site, why do you want one more way for people to make fun of others? what is this high school? we have to endure popularity ballots??

  • if ppl are worried about it they shouldnt be invloved in it, if you dont want to get your feelings hurt dont put yourself out there

  • I don't enter them I don't even look or go vote I think it also mean everyone thinks their child is the cutest and nothing is going to change that but if they lose they will not feel good about it at all and it is unfair why are we judging children we are not entitled too!

  • I agree. It can be a bit hurtful, especially if your child always loses the showdowns. My son always lost to little girls, so I stopped entering. I know he's cute and that's all that matters.

  • I don't do it or vote or even go look, just didn't understand what others got out of it

  • Not to brag, but I usually win the majority of my showdowns and i've had my husband, myself, the kids and the baby. It's all in fun and the ones i've lost are fun to because it's a pic. of me and hubby against a baby and mommy. It doesn't always make sense, but it's all in fun!

  • I don't participate. This is not a popularity contest, and obviously each mom is going to think her kid is the cutest, so I agree, people are rude enough on here, for some reason, and we thought this was supposed to be a place for moms to chill and swap advice. Imagine that.
