A Mother's Stand Against a Toxic Support Group: Righteous or Rude? 🤔

In a shocking turn of events, a mother seeking support for her child's learning disability finds herself in a group of mothers blaming their children for their personal problems. From shocking statements made within earshot of the kids, to blaming them for failed marriages, this support group was anything but supportive. Our brave mother couldn't keep quiet and expressed her disgust, leading to a cold reaction from the group.

Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🧐
