I joined this website to talk to other mothers without judgement... I thought peope could share opinions here in a peaceful atmosphere and just talk. But so many people on here it seems like, are just waiting for someone to say one little thing wrong, or one thing that don't believe in, so that they can lash out on them and call them retarded, or ignorant, or hypocriticle, or whathave you... we are all just people.... why do so many of you have to be so rude and judgmental? I don't understand it. There has GOT to be a way to be kind to one another...

You are right.... there are many very rude people here. One thing that I do not like about this site is the Anon posts. The other Mom sites that I have been to do not offer that option and they tend to be more civil. If a group is particularly rude to you, join a different group.
The Cafe Mom Newcomer's Group is one in particular that can get nasty quick if you post something they don't like, or even if you make a few typos, the fangs and claws start flying! The larger the group, the higher the chance you'll find trolls. That being said.... there are still many wonderful supportive ladies here on CM. But even when they've "got your back" you really have to be thick skinned when reading the other responses.

Welcome to cafe mom!!! LOL It's a "rude awakening" isn't it! The best thing to do is just ignore the drama and move on. People are gonna be people. Some are miserable & therefore want to be rude and nasty and there's nothing you can do to change it. It's better if you find groups that interest you and spend your time there. That way you're communicating with others who share your beliefs and opinions and there's a whole lot less drama and bickering. Hope you find what you're looking for! ~ Blessings...
