Why do some moms do this? LOL

They ask a question that they really only want to hear their opinion as the answer to. Then, as people answer...if you say anything, and I mean even nicely, that is different, they flip. And the first person that answers the way they like, they pick it as best answer. Even if it is the second of only 2 answers. I mean, really? So crazy.

  • Because they are self important and only their same view point has value to them. They are not seeking knowledge, they are seeking validation for their own opinion.

  • cause no one really wants to HEAR someone tell them they are stupid/wrong/inappropriate.. thats why sometimes I wonder why some women even bother asking.... I am first to admit I know very little but willing to learn as much as possible...

  • They want validation for their dumb ass choices. When someone tells them the truth, they get mad.

  • I always read ALL the answers and after a couple days I go through and pick out the one that is most helpful or interesting to me.

    I totally get what you are saying though.

  • its called freedom of speech and freedom of choosing whatever you want if there is only 2 answers and they want to pick one then that is their privilege. Why should it bother others if a mom asks a question and then closes it or picks best answer after one or two answers; maybe she went back and reread what she wrote and decided the question didn't sound right.
