I found this quote on an article from FAMEBaby (Baby Center's Celebrity blog) today:

“I will tell you what I can’t abide - and I think the Internet has really created a space for it - women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers. It just makes me crazy, whether it’s between staying at home, going to work, how long you breast-feed, if you use formula. I feel like we should just assume everyone is doing the best they can. Women should take care of each other, not tear each other down. I would just like to see a mother who really believes that she has done it all so right, you know what I mean?" - actress Jennifer Garner

I think this is so very - unfortunately - true. The internet is a place rampant with criticism and critique of practically everyone. Lots of new moms who are home taking care of kids turn to the internet to find support and friends. (I believe Parents magazine did a article on this just a few issues ago - but it mainly focused on moms who get sucked into & even addicted to the internet. Which is a whole OTHER story for another time.) Oftentimes moms will find the support they are searching for in places like Mom Bloggers Club, Cafe Mom, 5 Minutes for Mom and countless other websites & blogs.....
