Do you feel like you have to justify everything you say and do here??

It seems like so many women are afraid of being attacked on here that they think they have to defend everything...

I drink- but only 1 or 2 beers

 I stopped at McDonalds- but it's the only time this year

My kids watch tv- but only for 1 hour a day

It'd just be nice if all the perfect moms out there accepted the fact the what works for them may not be what works for everybody else!!!

  • omg I drink milk straight from the jug but its my milk lol. It's not just on here but if you pay attention you notice that people also do it when they are having a face to face conversation or even over the phone..

  • I agree! I don't justify myself on here or at home. I don't know anyone on here, although there are some names I see and immediately know it's going to be fun just by their questions and answers :)

  • Since I will more than likely never meet any in person, I don't see the need to justify my actions or prove myself to someone who may not even be in the same state or country as me.

  • No

    Answer by pinkdragon36 at 6:08 PM on Dec. 18, 2010

  • Yes, because there are some people here that try to read between the lines and add in their own suspicious judgements. That's why you learn to be thorough in your questions so you can actually get a constructive answer and weed out the bashers.
