I always pause a moment when I see someone say that, usually in the context of "we're supposed to be here to support each other". This is how CM describes itself:
I would consider this a networking site - no different than Facebook or MySpace, with the only difference being there are general rules that are occasionally enforced about who can and cannot participate. But I don't consider FB a "support" site, any more than this is. The majority of the site - groups, journals, Q&A, polls, all of it, are categories that aren't about parenting at all, and those that are, are as much about debate or marketing as they are advice. What is it that makes people categorize this as some kind of support group, as opposed to a networking site with a few select areas that cater to giving advice?Answer Question

I completely agree with your assessment, NP. I always smile when I read that line "But I thought this site was for moms to support each other". I suppose different people have different worldviews and it's probably people who are a little more emotionally driven and perhaps with a more optimistic POV who would feel that way.
