I agree with you, OP. A little empathy goes a long way.

I can't recall the exact proverb but, if you'll allow a possible paraphrase, it's something like: "There's so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us that it ill behoves all of us to talk about any of us."

Did you not get enough replies on your previous thread about the same blog?

I can see that its best practice to check yourself, its all too easy to have a go. That's especially true when you can't see the result, like on the internet. However, truth is people get frustrated and vent.

"How have we arrived in a time where we can verbally attack people and wear them down, with our justification being that we’re “Only being honest”? What about tact? And compassion? What about concern for our fellow mothers?"

I wrote this post after witnessing a horrible exchange in a FB mums' group.

I'd love your thoughts,
