Why do Moms argue?

Any given situation. . . any given day. . . why do we as moms and wives argue over how to deal with said situation? Why argue over what is right and wrong? Yes there is always a right and wrong and more wrongs. . . but unless you are in that moms shoes. . . who are you to condemn? Why do we argue?

  • There is a difference between sharing ideas and disagreeing and straight out bashing one another for our beliefs. I think there is way too much bashing and intolerance.

  • There aren't always a "right or wrong" in situations. A lot of the time it is up to personal opinion and morality. And like I said, that's personal. You'll always have someone out there that believes that they are right and no matter what anyone else may think, their opinion is wrong wrong wrong. It's human nature.

  • but do we have to argue it? this is neutral ground and we all have our turn with the "speaking- stick" and everyone's opinion is valid. . . it is great "you" have an opinion. . . you can think. . . but do we need to argue? or can we just say our opinions and admit that their are other opinions out there that differ from our own. . . you are right. . . sometimes there is not a true right of wrong to a situation. . . just opinion and morality. . . but do we need to be so negative?

  • heck I am the first to admit a little negativity can do a body good. . . but why take it out on everyone else? Right or wrong. . . to each their own. . .

  • thank you lovingSAHMommy. . . that is what I was getting at. . . why is it so hard for us as people and moms and wives to just share opinions and ideas and admit to a disagreement? instead we bash. . . why is argue? why the negativity?

  • women are is inherent in females to position and dominate, to be protective of what is ours. Years ago one had a club and just bonked the other on the head. Be thankful we have evolved LOL
    In other words....we are bitches. (well not me...Im wonderful LOL)

  • I think a lot of moms are insecure in their parenting and constantly questioning themselves and when they see/hear of someone doing something they think is wrong, they jump on it in hopes to make themselves feel better.
    Plus, I'm willing to bet that most of the arguments/bashing happens online instead of face to face. It's a lot easier to be mean to someone you don't personally know and can't see rather than to look them in eye and do it. On here, they are just faceless people.

  • most of our comments are just oppinions and should be taken as such, but sometimes there are truely bad situations where it is a matter of right and wrong, and if you ask and are truely wrong in accept it as many othes do!

  • but unless you are in that situation in that time. . . only the woman there knows the truth in the situation. . . just because one of us way back in primal times was a Neanderthal doesn't mean we are all inherently bitches. Yes, we evolve, and online we are all faceless. . . but negativity is negativity no matter how, who, when, or where it is directed, via internet or face to face. . . negativity grows and is directed outward towards the world. . . at faces we know and love. . . why do we need to start attacking here where it is neutral grounds? just because "we" can say it is right or wrong. . . it is not up to us to judge and condemn. . . it is not for us to say. We have opinions and voices, thoughts in our heads and this is good. . .we have thought and consciences, we have morals. . . but to each their own and we all have a difference of opinion. is it necessary to argue?
