Why so much talk about who is better?

I have seen a lot of questions lately about certain mothers being better than others. Moms who don't smoke, moms who have natural child birth, etc. Why are we so worried about who is better? Aren't we all here for support and understanding? Let's stop judging each other and start being more compassionate.

  • amen. im sick of it too. everyone thinks theyre better than me because i had my dd young. we are all her for the same reason. no one is better than the other and i think people that think they are better should get over themselves because thats highskool shyt and its immature.

    i totally agree.

  • Some ppl have to feel superior. They need that ego feeding. Its sad really. I think threapy & medication would help. It's called narcissistic personality. I feel sorry for their kids. Imagine how awful they will feel if they dont live up to the expectations that mommy is raising a "better", more perfect child then Mrs. Blah-Blah. God forbid poor little jr. turns up austic or even gets a bad grade on the spelling test. I bet there is a lot of tension in households like the Mrs. Perfects lives in. I bet poor husband suffers as well just to feed that hugh ego.

  • Low self esteem - putting others down is the only way to make themselves feel better.

  • You ladies have hit the nail bang on. Anyone who puts people down for not being like them is ridiculous since nobody is like anyone else. Everyone knows I'm the best.LOL Just kidding.

  • My ex told me that his previous wife "had ALL his other kids naturally!!" and that was why he thought I should do it, too. Fortunately, I'd already had one child and knew that when in labor, the anesthesiologist is your BEST FRIEND!! I asked him if his other wife had any "brownie buttons" for all that Natural Childbirth, then told him to "shut-it!!" and called for drugs! I still laugh about that!
