How honest do you think people really are when they answer questions on here?

I mean the ones that say 'I never do/say that' or 'I would never...'
Or "I always..."
For example, when asked if you have ever gotten so mad at your child, have you ever cursed at them or called them a bad name? Especially if they were acting like one?
Many answered, I would never...
And I wonder how many were being honest, and how many are just full of themselves.
I am honest when I answer. I tell it how it is. No reason not to. People on here don't know me anyway...not like they're gonna come knock on my door and say, OMG I can't believe you said that on Cafemom. How honest are you when you answer questions?

  • Heck I don't even think they are even honest when describing the situation they are asking a question about

  • I'm always honest. I rarely believe the anon people. If they are being truthful, why should they hide?

  • I think most people are honest because we can all choose anon if we want to. I can honestly say I have never cursed at my child...I dont think its right. And I don't curse at anyone anyway so what do I look like treating my kid like that?

  • I answer honestly. Sometimes I think i give way too much personal information. There are some questions that I can't answer at all. I write an honest response, but then I realize that maybe I'll get in trouble for being too brutal so I delete it instead! LOL

  • What would be the point of answering if a person wasn't going to be honest? Not sure why anyone would lie since no one knows who they are

  • I think it's more self-righteousness than anything else. LIke in a perfect world they would 'never' do these things. EIther they are exaggerating or they are the blandest, most even-keeled people on earth. Who hasn't yelled at their kids, even once?

  • I am honest. If it's something that I don't want people to harass me about, I just reply anon.

  • I think many of them have never been in the situation before. So they are being honest as far as they have experienced.
