IMO: I think alot of other Mama's came off way too harsh on Spiceymama. WAY TOO HARSH.
If you wouldn't take that tone with a complete stranger on the street who asked you about your opinion, why would you do it online?
Disagreeing and telling someone that their actions were whacked compared to what you chose is fine, its a free world.
BUT: There is a real person on the other end of the pc..I really wish people would keep that in mind. It seems like the 'love' and 'concern' you show for children, would extend up unto the parent who, ALSO is a person with feelings and thoughts... Sorry, hope I didn't make anyone mad.

I'm sorry to see so many people so judgemental; I mean, for heavens sake, you could compare cutting toenails or hair to ear piercing if you wanted to get so technical!
