  • Because people in general like to feel superior to others. That's why we judge others.

  • Alot of people see circumcised as cosmetic surgery, which on a 3 day old is basically abusive. You wouldn't have their boobs done real quick since small boobs run in the family and it's better to do it early so they wont remember the pain.

  • I think that some people are undecided on some things and just want an honest opinion and then people get all fired up for nothing.

  • Because we always (well almost always) think our way is THE way.....just because it worked for you doesn't mean it will be best for ME.

  • Because they are over opinionated and don't know how to open up their mind to different ideas.

  • I totally applaud those who cloth diaper. I'm jealous. I think it takes a special kind of person to be willing to make the time for that. I was simply not that person. I seethed with anger every single time I paid $20 for 2-3 weeks worth of diapers.

  • hibbingboo, but in all actuality that is not abuse, its not something you can contact DHR and they will have kids removed for sort of thing. Anyways, why would you care what another parent does since it doesn't affect you or your child?
