This is kind of a cross-over About Cafemom question, but it's definitely more of a debatable subject.
There are constantly people, generally speaking, younger moms, who post scolding, condescending rants in the About section, complaining about how people are mean to them or bashing them. Sometimes, you can go to the questions or group posts they're discussing, and there is legitimately someone being mean. Usually, though, you find someone who did nothing more than disagree with them. (and then there are ones who are just posting for drama and there isn't even a disagreement to be found, but that's a whole different issue)
Is this a direct result of that everyone gets a trophy, treat them like a friend not a child, never use the word "no" mentality? I'm not suggesting ALL mothers between ages 16 and 25 are like this, only observing that for the most part, those complaints come from that age group. It also just happens to be the generation in which this everyone wins, never say no attitude really took root. Point being, there seems to be a preponderance of people in that age group who absolutely cannot handle confrontation. It's so foreign to them that they interpret anyone who doesn't agree with them as being mean. Is it a coincidence, or is it related? And if it is, how are they raising their kids?
