There are things in life we agree with and disagree with. Things we are passionate about or don't give two hoots about, why can't someone who feels passionately about smoking whilst pregnant not voice that they disagree with it, without being criticized herself!? It's hypocritical.
Just because someone disagrees with what Chrissy did, it doesn't make her all of a sudden 'think she's perfect' and doesn't make them deserving of criticism.
If its ok for people to criticize another for having an opinion (which is not harmful to anyone - ever!) why is it not ok to criticize someone for putting their child's health at risk. You can't have it both ways. Again it's hypocritical.
If you think Chrissy Swan should be given a break, just say so and leave it at that but don't then go and criticize someone just for disagreeing with you....
This is how these threads turn nasty and get closed down. State your opinion and leave others alone to state theirs, whether you agree with them or not.

But Beebs we all have opinions, and in order to form an opinion - you make a judgement!
Didn't you recently post on the ' empathy' thread, about how parents calling their children awful names makes you feel sad......well a mother who smokes in her car (where her children travel - the residue of tobacco smoke has serious implications for children's health and well being) and is also pregnant ( damaging the health of her unborn child) makes me angry.
You feel sad about someone else's parenting, I feel angry.......please tell me the difference!

I just think that means therefore that you shouldn't disagree with anything in the forums because esentially disagreeing with someone is judging them is it not?
For example sake (and not to say this is you specifically, I don't know what your stance is on the following) someone may formula feed their baby and you may refer to formula as artificial milk and think that mothers should try harder to breastfeed before turning to formula as its bad for your baby... that is both an opinion and a judgement on mothers who formula feed. Well that's how I read it.
I'm just not sure you can have a negative opinion of something and not judge someone for doing something you think is negative. Does that make sense? I'm not sure I explained it right. :s
