Well, good. Just remember that this is international, so sometimes opinions get misconstrued, or misread, and things may sound strange sometimes. If you ever have a problem on the site, contact one of the leaders, they're awesome women!

If you ever have questions, just need to vent, or whatever, feel free to post! I love the communities I'm in, and most of the women in my communities are in all of the same ones I am, so you get to feel like you know people, even if you haven't met...Right, Dove?

The post about the "bratty step children" Well, the thing is, (I haven't commented on that one, because the OP has changed her story so many times in that thread it isn't funny)...Most people will blurt their real feelings out in the original post, only to back track and make excuses when asked to clarify. In that case, she clearly thinks that she shouldn't have to be bothered with her step children, but then spends pages backtracking and trying to cover her ass. People like that, shallow, self centered people, have no business being around children.

I also have a low tolerance for people who blame kids for their crappy marriage, who play the blame game in the marriage/relationship break up and use the kids as pawns, who lie to their kids about their biological parents, people who post a question but really don't want advice and only want people to agree with them, and trolls. And right now, the trolls are everywhere. So my radar is on full alert :P

Dove you are blunt and honest, I wouldn't call you rude thou and A LOT of what you say I agree with.

Becky don't feel stupid you do have to get use to this site.
I once posted something and I have shitty grammar and people read it wrong (totally my fault) and I was already to leave it, after all it's meant to be fun and helpful once I've explained my self people read it for what I meant explained to me were I'd gone wrong and I then totally saw what I'd done and it was all down to some misplaced exclamation marks.
i love this site now, Also you have to make room for cultural difference and some time agree to disagree.

In other words, Becky...LOL...Stick around. A lot of us are blunt, and straight to the point, me included!

Most of us have YEARS of parenting under our belts, so sometimes we're a little more blunt than is necessary, but sometimes, to us, the answer is really obvious, and we don't always realize that some newer parents out there are still learning the ropes.

I will say, though, Jodi, Little miss, Dove...all of those ladies that were on the original post you were referring to...are stellar personalities, and I'd LOVE to meet any and all of them in person because we are so alike in our thoughts and opinions

The trolls seem to be breeding jodi but the one's that get me are the one's who should be trolls but are real actual unbelievable people like "I let my 10 year old kid masturbate wherever he likes, oops he got caught in school, oh well!" Or something along those lines.

Yep. I still get called rude a lot though... Anyone that KNOWS me for real knows that I wouldn't ever intentionally hurt a fly (well, yeah... I would... I kill those...). Like I said though, I have a very skewed social filter, so what I intend and what I portray do not always match up at all.

No worries, dear...I was once in your shoes, and then read a few more posts...after awhile, like I said, your "mom radar" will kick in, and you'll be able to pick out the BS stories! :)

I hope you're feeling a bit better yourself, it sounds like you've had a rough go the last couple of months!

Well, they do, but they think it's fun to screw with people too. Take, for instance, the post about the 19 yo making an out of state trip. There's a woman that has jumped into that one, no helpful advice, but comments that are designed to irritate people and incite arguments. Those people are the irritating ones

Ditto Shawnn. It happens ALL the time. Someone starts a post and doesn't like the responses they get, so they change their story, add in what SHOULD be extremely useful information, etc.... It gets old and tends to make people not believable.

The One With Darlene And The Kids Dove, I Could See In The Posts That All She Was Looking For Was help, But She Was Slated By Little Miss Can't Be Wrong, I Know She Could Of Said It in A Better Way, I Mean If You Got Kids You Could Understand How It Must Be Hard For Her x

Which post? You have to read a lot more than one. Many posts do turn out like that, but a lot more ARE helpful and supportive. Some people are just more blunt and not into putting up with crap (speaking as someone who's social filter is extremely 'skewed'...).

The Way Darlene Was Dealt With Was Disgusting, I'm Thinking Of De-activating This Account, Just Purely Because I'm Not Sure If I'm Going To Get Help Or Slated

This site is for help and support. However, most of us have "mom radar" and know when posts aren't exactly up and up
