I was thinking about the mean people on here........

do you think they teach thier kids to act that way too? I just think some of what i see is just awful and wonder how people can be so mean to others. but i think most of the people on here are great.

  • They may not be teaching them but the kids are learning by example.

  • I dont think they have to teach I think if they act this way around their kids they will just learn it.. But like 3happylkidds wrote I think most of them are just mean on here because they are not face to face with others

  • I am mean sometimes and make no excuse for it but if I know I am going to be evil I stay out of this section no need to spread the evil.

  • I think the 'mean' ones use this site to release any and all of their anger and frustrations they experience in their real life. There are some that are passionate about their views and go to extremes to express them. I'm of course guessing here but I would imagine they do not teach their children this approach to life.

  • I think some view this as an outlet for their frustrations, unfortunately they don't take into consideration that these are real people with real feelings. I try to ignore rude comments and not give them the satisfaction of arguing with them.

  • See I think there are more ppl on here who just see things one way and dont want to see things any other way so to them what ppl post is wrong and they just voice their opinion. But some consider it so close minded that it is mean. They just may not see the other side of what someone is saying. so to each their own

  • Some people consider questioning other people's parenting skills to be "mean". In fact, they consider it one of the worst things you can do on this website. Funny, how everyone has a different definition of mean, but whatever it is, it doesn't include themselves.
