  • When I came to cafe mom during the summer two years ago I joined a group that dealt with marriage. A woman posted nude pics of her butt bending over and her boobs covered by her man's hands strattled behind her. We are not talking about a skinny young thing looking like a pinup. We are talking hustler style pics.You saw everything and I mean everything. Just the worst I ever saw on cafe mom. The group post was asking to take down the XXX photos. She was fat too.

  • op here- Mine were emotionally shocking... the first one was of a mother that had several children and a few had passed on different occasions- my heart broke seeing their faces and I couldn't believe the mother was so strong and had been put through so much. The second was a picture of a an angel baby on the signature that was premature baby (VERY early) and had passed- I almost fell out of my chair from the image, ( one of my children was premature, but was only 6 1/2 weeks early, he had several complications)- but the image of this tiny little baby was so heart breaking and again, I felt so badly for the mother and her family.

  • A woman who was seeking guidance because her and her best friend had decided to "get pregnant together" but then after they were both knocked up her friend changed her mind and wanted to get abortions. She was afraid her friend would be mad at her if she didn't have the abortion to....I'm 98% sure that one was total BS but you never there are some dumb people on this planet.

  • A story I read about a mom who gave birth at her work and threw the baby in the dumpster. Insane! I'm not sure if it was real or not, but even if it wasn't it's still terrible that someone would lie about that.

  • BTW, the baby was still alive when she threw him/her in the dumpster.

  • The lack of respect some posters show. They lash out at moms who are probably asking for support, not to be criticized. Unless you have something good to say or constructive, I think the ruse should be don't say anything... I've had negative comments about questions/posts and they shouldn't be allowed.

  • bow downThe disrespect is so disgusting. It is really low class.Save the drama for your own mommas. On cafe mom we come for support not to be torn down to their snobby,bully level.Stop the mean anons.What is so funny is that after awhile you figure out who's who on anon.I am the nice anon.There are many nice anons. But the bad ones ruin it for everyone else with their lack of class and respect for their conterparts.

  • The hate and language that some screen name post.

    The watering down of parents skills to where they go with the flow of everyone else.

    The tatoos, piecing; drinking; smoking; partying do as though they were living a single life.
