    Agreed.

    No offence taken. To clarify I generally assume the best about people's intentions but I have a very low tolerance for when things like this happen. To me - it doesn't matter what people's intentions are. What matters if what (if anything) was broken that lead to the crap thing happening.

    You generally see the best about people all round which is also a positive quality.

    Just curious, do you ever consider how your 'my black and white views are right and I will argue it to the death' might be impacting on the people who are reaching out for help in the first place?
    Have your say, sure...but stop telling everyone else they're wrong and insisting that your view is right over and over again; because you would stress me out big time if it was me reaching out in an already stressed situation. I can only imagine that it probably feels the same for the people asking for help in the first place.

    Im in the OPS corner on this one - I don't think she's upset at my support. Well I hope not and if she is I apologise. If others (who disagree with me in a just as black and white manner) are distressed that I disagree with them then they need to rethink whether an online forum is suitable for them. If the Ops husband is upset with my views then I'm not sure what to say. Perhaps create your own support thread on a different forum?

    I am not going to back down and say the daycare staff were not at fault or that the OP's husband did the right thing when 1) I don't know that was the case 2) I don't believe that was the case. If people want me to stop saying I think my view is right (and I still think I'm right)... They need to stop telling me they think I'm wrong - in not going to ignore quotes and comments directed at me. It's that simple.

    I'll take that as a no, then.

    VicPark at the moment you do seem to be making threads more point scoring than actually caring about original posters.

    You've misinterpreted.

    Maybe you and the others could focus on supporting the OP as opposed to detracting the thread by nitpicking the point over my views?

    It's hard with some of your comments lately. And no this isn't me being sensitive towards my own interactions with you, I'm thinking of specific comments made to other posters.

    Wise Enough is spot on and said it much nicer than I could.

    Perhaps you could focus on the OP and not me? Happy for you to start another thread to discuss my alleged comments and motives. Enough derailing already I think
