Wow. If it were me, I might tip off CPS.

What a terrible excuse of a mother she is.

Klassy. Any chance she has PPD and isn’t really that shitty?

I have had a moment to ponder this… is it possible she is suffering from PPD?  I’m glad she is living with someone who can help her.  I know the first few weeks were really hard, with the lack of sleep and just everything being overwhelming.  Are you friends with her?  Is there any way you could check in and see if she’s struggling?

My first instinct was to judge, but now that I’ve thought about it, it’s possible that she’s just feeling very overwhelmed and could maybe use a little support (and probably exercise some better judgement about what she shares on public social media…)

I’m not a Facebook hater but heck, people post some appalling shyte on there at times. Like who talks about their baby like that in public?

As for fighting people I fear that I am witnessing a particularly unpleasant spectacle concerning some mutual friends in this respect. There has been some unfortunate behaviour but rather than be quiet and take the consequences the perpetrator has launched an eye-watering series of threats are all over Facebook. These things never end well. 

I do wonder whether people realise just who reads Facebook too. Including social workers…

Unfortunately there is a mom that I’m friends with that constantly posts statuses that make me feel bad for her children. It’s unfortunate and I have a very hard time wrapping my head around some of her statuses. At least your friend has living with her to help out. The girl I’m friends with lives on her own with her two kids.

@BakerBee16:  Whoa.  It sounds like she needs some help for herself and the baby.  Does she have a support system of friends and family around her?  There is nothing wrong with putitng the baby safely in their crib and taking a break in another room to escape the screaming but some moms don’t know that.  I would worry about her abusing or neglecting the baby as a result of her feelings and it could be PPD.  Maybe sending her PM through FB asking her if she feels overwhelmed and maybe making a recommendation for help/assistance would be a polite way to approach the situation.  But if you think the baby is truely in danger, please call child protective services.  They don’t just remove children anymore, they can also provide mom with counseling and parenting classes to increase her support system.

@Steampunkbride:  Social workers and CPS definitely read your FB page if it’s public.  It’s amazing what I have found on public FB pages while there is an active court case.  One parent posted pictures of himself smoking weed during a visit with his child; needless to say, the judge in the custody case was not amused.

Clinically, what’s the difference between having PPD and just plain acting like an asshole to your newborn child?
