Why is it that mothers of large to very large families are oftentimes vitriolically hostile to women

who are either childless or have small families? It seems to me that these mothers believe that every woman should have the same lifestyle that they have and if they do not, the woman is "missing something", "selfish", and "hedonistic". However, if anyone criticizes these mothers, they become highly defensive and go into attack mode. Well, if you do not want to be criticized, do not criticize others.

    Totally agree, you should read the blogs on large families. Those mothers are WAY OUT THERE so to speak. They condemn women who are childless as selfish and criticize mothers who have small families, stating that they should have more children.
