What do you do if you think someone is going around giving bad advice. So far I have only seen two post from the same person. IMO the answers were a little off. I know we all don't agree but still. What do you do?

Ignore it, or reply back in a diplomatic way. Most of the time if it makes me upset I reply.

I'd say it depends on how bad or dangerous the advice they're giving is. If it's not too bad just combat it with facts and peer reviewed studies. If it's really bad, as in bordering on troll and you're not sure... you can report the post. There's an option below the person's post in the bottom right hand corner of their post. You can leave a message for the mods on why you think the post needed to be reported.

Thank you that is good to know. I am thinking it is just different parenting styles. At first I thought she was crazy. I am trying to be objective. So I guess I won't have her babysit my kids. lol But still the info you gave me was very helpful. Thank you.

That is what I was thinking at first. But I don't think that is what is happening. But since it has been brought up what if it is a troll. Thats what trolls do. Jeez that is soooo wrong. Do you report them to someone. And if yes, who?
