Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
I used to be a teen/tween girl and I’ve raised two daughters. Here’s the problem: (in my experience) mean moms usually produce mean girls. You know the ones...those prissy moms who are overly obsessed with looks, popularity, gossip, having the “right” influence over the PTA. They’re the ones whose husbands have that thousand-yard stare and that “what the h*ll happened to my life?” look on their face. Those are the moms that raise the mean girls and no way on God’s green earth will they teach their daughters empathy or inclusion or kindness. They only teach stepping on others while one climbs up the social ladder.
