But before you get there, you have to deal with issues surrounding your kids, their choices, and your husband/wife. Meanwhile you are trying to keep yourself sane throughout that life sentence. Television mothers often attempt to showcase the fun side of parenting, because who wants to see bad mothers on television?
Raising a child is not easy and raising more than one, of the same age, at the same time, is a true test on your mental stability.
What might be a bad mother to you, may be a great mother to another. We believe that some mothers are bad because:
a) they realize after giving birth, that they are not cut-out to be a mother and the guilt of having made the choice of having a family, pushes them to become a monster;
Am sure there other reasons, (some medical, emotional, psychological, etc) but these are the ones we have observed.
Believe me I am the worlds worst mom I hate my kids to the core,I don't like to be around them.I wish me and my husband could just leave them and start our life a fresh.They don't even love their mother I gave them everything they wanted and they give more love and affection to comlpete strangers,so why even bother.All I ever wanted growing up was a family of my own and all I got was shit.I need help but just don't know what to do.
I am really upset about my divorce so I have used my kids to get back at my ex. I tell them they shouldn't love their Dad and his new girlfriend and tell them that their father left them. I don't want them to love their Dad because it hurts me. I have lied in our divorce and under oath in court. I stole money from my ex. I cheated on him in our marriage. Secretly I want him back.
last summer, my 14 yr old son fell as he was running down the stairs. He fell the last 4 steps. After he hit the bottom he grabbed his leg and said that his ankle hurt. I checked it out, it wasn't swelling or bruised,so I had him put some ice on it and told him it would be fine. The next morning he was still complaining about his ankle, it didn't look any worse, still no swelling so I told him to quit being a wuss and suck it up and deal with it. Well the next day he still wouldn't put any weight on his foot so I took him to the local urgent care for an x-ray. As it turns out, he had a hairline fracture in the bottom of the leg bone! He kept telling me "Bad Mom" since I told him to walk on a broken ankle.
What got us thinking about this subject an observation of thousands of shows on TV, and realizing that you only see bad mothers on crime shows or tabloid talk-shows, yet the so called “bad mothers” seem to be known to us all, in one way or the other. You have heard the comment "Oh, she's a bad mother"; "Who does that to a child?, She is a bad mother"; "Good mothers don't do that", etc. Although people pass those comments as opinions, it seems to be an easy conclusion by females who are also mothers. As if there is a universal standard which regulars who is and not, a bad mother. But since the label “bad mother” is open for much needed debate, we believe as stated earlier, that a bad mother to you, may be a fantastic mother to us.
