I was reading a few questions and their answers, hell I have even posted a question or two and been ATTACKED. wtf?!
Example, my oldest was having issues potty training so I put her in a diaper and put her in a playpen so she would understand that being a baby wasn't any fun. she was in there for maybe 5 minutes before she agreed, it wasn't fun and wanted out to be a big girl again. SOMEONE yelled at me calling me a bad mother and saying that what I had done was so close to child abuse it wasn't funny..
Really?! I didn't hit her, didn't abuse her in any way and yet I was attacked and yelled at.. all I wanted was more ideas on how to help her understand that being 5 and wetting herself wasn't acceptable.
We are all MOTHERS why in the world would any of us just jump to conclusions.. we all have kids and know how hard it is to raise a child, why make another Mother feel worse for asking for help with a problem by yelling at her and speaking down to her?!
I can understand if a Mom says she left her toddler in a dirty diaper for hours to teach them a lesson and bragging about it.. yes that Mom i would be upset with but still.. if she was asking for help with a diaper rash, what she did is wrong and she KNOWS that.. hints asking how to make her kid feel better. OFFER different solutions for the original problem and a solution to the new problem instead of just attacking her..
cafemom is here to help other moms and to communicate with other Moms who understand what we are going through so we can share laughs, advice, stories and maybe brag a bit (or a bunch) about our kiddos.. stop the attack on other Moms who might not be Mrs or Miss perfect and need advice. we all get stressed and need advice now and then.

Period point blank, this will ALWAYS happen. Someone is not going to agree with you. TONS of "someones" aren't going to agree with you. My ongoing advice from now on is going to be if you can't handle it, don't be here. If you don't want to be disagreed with or bashed, don't post anything.

Well you are the one bashing now so welcome to the club. No, I don't believe personally that what you did is abuse but SOMEBODY out there will, period. If you are going to be this sensitive and take things to heart like this, yes, I stand by that "bullshit" answer. Stay away from here. Why cause yourself stress?
