Fight! Fight!

So what's your favorite topic to fight about on Cafe Mom? Breastfeeing/formula feeding? Potty training? Sleep training? Cosleeping? Television? Nutrition? Vaccinations? Have I forgotten something?

Are we really that bored?

Have you ever changed your mind on something that you feel passionate about like these topics, or are we just getting on here to shout our opinions in 50 different ways and feel better about ourselves?

  • You forgot politics! Honestly, I don't think I've ever changed my mind based on what I read on here, I tend to do some pretty extensive research before deciding what my opinion on a certain topic is...

  • lol
    I did open this one first, thinking I may get to see a fight. :)
    I personally never intend to fight. I do tend to weigh in on the issues where I feel like I'm of a minority opinion that particular day, just in case someone is on here for the first time and really looking for information... Other than that, I prefer to avoid all questions with more than 5 responses that look controversial. Reading those responses annoys me to no end.

  • I hate haters! When I reading a post and it's like a fight I get mad and quickly move to a different thread.

  • You forgot to list circumcision! Oh and ear peircing too.

  • Cry it out and baby wearing...

  • Oh yes, I guess I'm not tuned in to the circumcision discussions because I don't have a boy. Cry it out I euphemistically called "sleep training"... ear piercing, yes, of course... People actually care whether or not other moms wear their babies? Wow, this is even worse than I thought!
