Why are some moms so judgemental when it comes to other moms? I have noticed some people on this website seem to think their way of parenting is the best and everyone else sucks. What is with the attitude and why do you care how others parent their children?

  • It's called being narrow minded and self righteous. There is a lot of that in the land of parenting.

  • Some moms are just really passionate about their beliefs... I think alot of it is irrelevant, and nothing to get worked up about (cloth Vs. Dispoasble Diapers, Formula vs. Breast, paci vs. no paci, etc;) but some of them are relevant (extended rear facing vs. forward facing, extended harnessing vs. boostering prematurely, cereal being put in bottles, 8mths old eating hot dogs) those are relevant and factual and moms who believe in them do get very angry when someone wont do what is safest for their child when there are stone cold facts that prove their point of view is the absolute safest and the alternative is not safe AT ALL.

  • Children are all different and what works for some, doesn't work for others. Some people just think they know it all and are better then other moms instead of just giving the advice another mom would appreciate, they talk down to a new mom like she knows nothing. News flash: She doesnt' know anything, as i didn't when i first became a mom. They are usually also the ones who's kids end up not knowing how to live in the real world. Due to the fact their parents did everything for them, so it was done right.
    Since when can't 8months old eat hot dogs considering they actually have them in the baby food isle. My children did, and they are fine. I guess according to some "moms", i am wrong. That is their opinion and we all know about those, right.

  • Guess i see it everywhere in life, not just here. Mothers vs Daughters, Inlaws vs Daughter-in-laws, Grandmothers butting in, Aunts looking down thier noses, Nosey neighbors. Everyone has thier own ways and everychild is different.
