On the Boston Herald Mommy Blog here. Meredith quotes from April Peveteaux . Basically talking about why Moms attack each other in the online communities. Its true. Why does this happen? These forums are meant to be supportive, not combative. I was talking to my friend Kim about this type of thing at lunch. It’s bad enough that women have to work harder than men at almost everything in life that equates to a salary. So, why, when we are faced with what nature hands us (children) we feel the need to turn into lionesses?
