mommy war zones

000onlinewars

The internet is a great source of information, and as a new mother I was glad to have somewhere to turn to the different aspects of parenthood. But it easily gets a bit much with the different opinions and the online battles raging about one or the other subject.
Once my son was diagnosed, I found out pretty soon, that this is no different in the so called “autism community”. Don’t get me wrong! I think real debate is good.
But too often, people do not respect the basic rules of discussion, argument and reasoning. And it’s really just unproductive war mongering.

      Yeah, it really depends what the debate is about.. On some things, I fully admit to have a strong opinion and I won’t budge on it.. But it’s the way parents attack each other that seems to have gotten totally out of hands with the internet…and I actually didn’t expect it to be that fierce inside the “autism community”…

        That is one of the reasons why I left Facebook. I found the groups I belonged to were getting more and more defensive instead of supportive.

        There is a way to be strong and not budge, but some people go crazy on others that are just as strong about their opinions. That is where it gets crazy. 😉
