Has/How has Cafe Mom helped you?

I am just wondering how much Cafe Mom helps. There are people who complain about other people, others who ask parenting questions as well as love life, how has the opinions of others helped you? If at all.

  • I have learned a few things that I did not know or think much about before I came here, mostly regarding mothering issues such as natural birthing, breastfeeding, etc. And it's helped me to think more openly and deeper on topics of politics and religion. There are people here who have different viewpoints on those topics than anyone I know in real life, so I like reading the different perspectives and considering them from other angles.

  • I knew nothing about ERF (Extending Rear Facing) before CafeMom. My other child is 11 and it was NEVER mentioned back then. My little man is 18 months old and I hope to ERF as long as I can.

  • I was having problems with finding friends and husband problems. I have made some really good friends on here that will let me email them and I email them back so cafe mom has helped me with finding friends even if they do not life close to me.

  • I've made real friends here. Like actual friends who I communicate with on a regular basis. Friends who I've had dinner with and have met their families. Friends. Lole! Because of CM I actually have friends. :)

  • It's helped me make a few friends on here. We email via here and its been a great outlet. I hopefully have given good advice to those whom have asked and perhaps gained a new friend or two in the process.

    Cafe Mom is a great escape and after 3 years now being on and off here...Im glad I found the site.

  • it helped me because I am jobless and friendless in the state I'm in so it keeps me occupied and not so depressed!

    I have learned a few things here though...mostly in the religion sections and groups

  • I have not been on cafe mom long, but it has helped me in a few parenting issues. Even though there were some crazy answers, I did find a few people who genuinely helped. And I just joined a weight loss group, so I hope this helps me even more in my quest to lose 50 pounds.
