I suppose it has become typical of social media. A stay-at-home mum (SAHM) wrote an article saying that although she was grateful to be a mother, being at home full-time was just awful at times.

She claimed it was the biggest joy she’d known and loved every minute of it.

So the war was on.

A war of words, a war of perspectives, a war of personality and difference.
