Drama Fo Yo Mama

18 Replies
Ginny - April 24

I come to this website for advice and to share ideas with other moms. And I am SICK of clicking on threads to see what advice mothers have given, just to see that a thread has once again turned into a p___sing contest. Until now I have tried to avoid the drama, because it doesn't concern me, and I am too busy for this kind of thing. But it's getting harder to avoid because it is EVERYWHERE. This is an honest request : Save the drama fo' yo' mama.

I apologize for my participation in the drama fests. You're right, this website is supposed to be for information and support. However, when I'm attacked and insulted, I will defend myself.

i hear ya honey!! I call it perfect mother syndrome...its something that you will find in every mother (even ones that you are friends with) every mother likes to think that they know everything and are doing everything right for their baby, even if they arent. Alot of this entire forum is like that. The only thread that i NEVER had drama on was the trying to conceive and the pregnancy test. Because they are just sweet sweet people hoping to have a baby. I have made SO MANY good friends from this site that i talk to daily (some even on the phone) you just have to watch who you talk to and avoid the negative people on this site. They are no matter where you go, in real life and online. Good luck in your quest to find some answers on a drama filled site. Take care

I TOTALLY agree with you Ginny, but I also agree with Jamie. I usually try to hold my tongue but there have been times when someone's comment is so off base, rude and unacceptable that I have to comment. This forum, at least the IC section used to be drama free and now it is horrible. It seems there are more threads about other forums, arguements between people and just blatant rudeness than actual IC questions/comments. It's a shame. Somedays I wonder why I still pop in here.

I agree and also apologize. I hate drama and I know that I have also participated in it. I love coming here anyway. I am a SAHM, in my mid 30's, and this is my first LO. All of my girlfriends have much older children and all have returned to work, so I have no one to ask advice from nor do I have any one to carry on conversations with. I look to you ladies for advice and occasional conversation. That's why I posted a thread to Jamie because I know she can't really be a mean person. I have visited this site since I was in my first trimester and it is unfortunately a vice of mine (I guess I could think of worse things). I love the debates, but not when they get personal. I guess I feel that not all are respected, but should be. I do now however understand that several of you ladies have a history of hostility towards one another. So, I for one will not contribute to that...I respect all of you for your willingness to give up your time to respond to any number of the questions I've previously asked or have yet to ask. Thanks!

You're absolutely right Ginny, and I apologize. I knew I would catch some grief for posting on here, rightfully so, this forum doesn't need drama brought back here. My only defense (however lame it may be) is that this is the only place I had to get my point across to some people I have no other way of contacting. Again, I know how annoying it is and i'm sorry. So, from here on out, I will just bite my tongue and keep the negativity to myself.

Hi HannahBaby. My dd Mattea is 5 months old and my husband is a carpenter. He works really long hours as well...he leaves at 6 am and usually doesn't get home until 6 pm, so we're alone most of the day. I was like your friends, I partied while all my frinds had babies. Now I'm the one with the baby and they're starting to have more free time as their children become teenagers. It's kinda nice though cause thery're always willing to babysit. Anyway, sorry I can be a talker.

Hey Jamie have you checked out www.mothering.com/discussions/ The boards there are more AP.

 

HannahBaby - April 24

Im a talker too. If you look ive posted on prolly every thread on this entire website!! Its something that i feel i know a little bit about ( i didnt go to college, i got married right out of high school) I would love to be a nurse someday, but for now, and for a while, my first priority is my babies :o)

 

tiffani - April 24

Okay, I did one last post, but that's it, I promise!!! :o)

 

Jamie - April 24

I would join in the intros and short life stories, but I did on my thread to Hannahbaby so if you care, read that.

I started coming to this website when I found out I was pregnant. My dd is now 4 1/2 months old. I would love to be a SAHM and I am so jealous of anyone who gets too. Unfortunately I have a full time job. I log on and look at the sight off and on during the day as I'm waiting on reports to run. I agree with Ginny that the drama is increasing and does get tiring. But I also agree with Jamie. I held my tongue several times but sometimes I just can't hold back. I'll try to hold back on the drama. There is a lot of good information on this site.
