Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Before cafemom... I never knew...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
That moms had such strong opinions on formula feeding vs. Breast feeding. In real life people act like they don't much care, here its like world war 3 anytime the topic is brought up.

That circumcision was cause for debate. Honestly, I just didn't think it was a big deal until I saw the battle royales going on on cafemom.

What ERFing was. I had my first son 7.5 yrs ago. I turned him forward facing at the minimum for the state regs. Not long after I joined cafemom I saw debates galore about ERFing. It just wasn't something I ever would have heard of had it not been for cafemom.

That PA made so many people mad. I never realized how many people hate PA, or think all people on PA are fat, lazy slobs who don't parent.. Etc.

How much crap they put in the food you buy at the store. Or in your detergents.. Not saying I'm blind to these things, I just never would have had reason to question any of it.

That people breast feed to five or six... I never would have guessed.

That cloth diapering was so popular.

That people argued about homeschooling vs public schooling. :/

What have you learned since joining? What arguments on here have surprised you? I know I now ERF my kids. Not to the extreme that some ladies do, but until 2. And my kids are in five point harnessess until 65lbs. I'll also be trying to breast feed this baby (tried the last two times with no success), but I'm going to try harder this time.

Yes. I did not know you could choose not to circumcise your son or choose not to vaccinate.

Quoting AleaKat:

Same here.

We never thought NOT to circ our boys.

Or that I didn't have to vaccinate my kids. I thought that was something all parents did! Apparently I was WAY off!

I've learned that if someone uses a term that you have never heard of and then says. "LOL google it"..You do NOT, under any circumstance, google it. Because chances are you are about to see something that will make you want to bleach your eyes.

Oh I knew I had an option but I guess what I'm saying is that I thought it was just a hygiene/ cosmetic preference.
I never thought of it as abuse like I hear in here.

I learned that your man will leave you if he doesn't get regular blow jobs.

I learned that husbands disappear for no apparent reason. Then they are found a day later hanging out with their bud.
