    What would you do if a childless friend was sharing and liking an article on Facebook about how SAHM needs to shut it and stop whinging?

    Not an article, more of a long and judgmental opinion piece.

    Said friend has lots of SAHM but has no idea what it's like to care for a baby/child.

    I would ignore it too, people post a lot of things on FB, not everyone is going to agree with everything that appears on their news feed.

    In general I respond in one of two ways when I see something that I find inappropriate or offensive on FB. If the person posting is a good friend or someone who I generally get along with besides their occasional questionable posts I just click the little arrow in the top corner and hide the post, out of sight out of mind and I don't have to waste time getting all annoyed by it.

    If the person posting is someone who posts a lot of things that I find offensive and I find myself questioning why they are even on my friends list, or I find myself getting so annoyed by their posts that I start feeling like I need to say something which I know will only end in a childish online argument, then I just delete them. Simple and effective..

    I would ignore. You're not a sahm so she's not aiming it at you. Maybe some of her friends have been making her feel a certain way because she's childless and this is her STFU response. Who knows. But safe to say I'd ignore and move on.

    My response would Depends on

    # how good of a friend she is
    # my mood
    #Weather I thought it was a passive aggressive attack on someone.


    If your a good friend I will call you out on it because we both know that we can disagree without it ending our friendship.

    If your not a good friend and I am not in good mood I ignore

    If I am a bad mood. I would give them both barrels.

    If I thought it was passive aggressive attack I would call you out on it.

    I'd probably have a laugh to myself and lose a little bit of respect for someone who would post something slamming a whole group of people when she has no idea what its like.

    But I wouldnt comment. In my experience people like that have no interest in hearing others opinions on the subject and its not like I'd change her mind, so not worth my energy...

    I'd comment on it that she was more than welcome to come and look after my child and house for a fortnight while I went on holidays and she what she thought of SAHMs then.

    As anewme said. I would pm with a msg if she was a really good friend.

    Otherwise I'd write something on the link. I'd ignore it if was an acquaintance

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    Just thought I'd add that she is a friend, not an acquaintance. We discuss a lot of very personal matters.

    For me it would depend - is she childless by choice, or struggling with fertility? If childless by choice, yeah I might tell her she's being offensive about a situation that she doesn't understand. But if she is struggling with fertility then I wouldn't say anything. That's a battle that can take you to dark places, and seeing SAHM friends who are living the dream that she wants to be living but can't, and they are complaining about it, well she would probably feel that they were being ungrateful whingers. Of course we know that's not true, being a SAHM is a bloody tough job! But her judgement might be clouded by her experiences.
