Have you recently read a post on CM that made you think "What the hell is wrong with this momma?"

I recently read something about ...(being discreet).... a mother being upset because she did something for her kids that was apparently criticized by other mothers on CM. My first thought was why does she even care what some strangers say about how she should be treating her own kids. As I read a little more of the post, I was thinking that maybe she just didn't realize how pathethic she was sounding. Have you ever felt this way on here?

  • YUP! All the time.
    I'm not that best Mom, I'm sure. I get ideas from CM daily, but WOW some people must make you believe that the only way is their away - they know everything and your kids are going to be messed up if you don't breast feed, have a V-bac, spank, time out, go to church, don't go to church and on and on and on.
    They sound the most pathetic.

  • Yes. And it's so hard when someone is just asking for advice about a situation but you're thinking, "What the HELL is wrong with you?!" the whole time you are reading it, lol I mean you would think some people would see how bad they were making themselves look after typing it...and then re-reading it.

  • All the time... I just hate seeing moms get bashed when they are asking for help, unless of course they are really stupid... which I have seen recently.

  • Yes. I think most of the time they think they're justified in their reasoning and are just looking for backers. When in reality they're wrong. A lot of mothers on here are questionable at best.
