While Netmums has been recommended in the press as a useful parenting tool, focused on being a support network, Mumsnet is famed for airing its opinions in the press, most recently to criticise the Outdoor Advertising Association's profile-raising "Career women make bad mothers" marketing, which was eventually pulled.
