  • oh Hell I am the president of the mean mommy club...My daughter is 17 and a half and my son (baby) is 13 can I tell you was inducted into the club about 15 years ago. I have the badges, the pins, wall plaques and I carry a member card.. I believe the first time was because I would not let my daughter run down the hallway with a sucker in her mouth...as for the other bazillion reasons...I figure it's just because I was doing my job and doing it right!!!! Congrats to you..we always have room for more..*winks*

  • I've been a member of the mean mommy's club for a long time. I became a member 5 years ago when my then 3 year old daughter got sent to her room for drawing onthe walls with permanant marker. The mean part was followed by "I hate you" If I hadn't already been a step mom to a teenager those words would have stung a lot worse, lol. So far in my son's eyes I am still the best mommy in the whole wide world :) He's only 4 though, I'm sure that will change with time.

  • Welcome to the club sweetie. I joined several years ago when my now 11 yr old son refused to go to school. Now with 3 almost 4 kids I am living in this club in at least one childs eyes at almost all times.

  • I am a mean mommy everyday, I tell my 5 year old no and I am mean and I am screaming at her, although my voice never goes up. Kids do it because thats the only thing they know to say to you when they are upset. But then they get old enough to know it bothers you like my little girl and they do it to try to get you to say ok you can do that. I am mean and proud of it!!! LOL

  • I have been a member of the mean mommy club for 13 years. I signed a contract in the hospital when my son was born to be a mean mommy. I had to sign it before he could leave the hospital with me. LOL!!!!!!! That is what my friend and I told our kids and they believed us. The sad thing is they are all over the age of 10!!!!

  • My oldest child is almost 15, so if the mom of the 17 yr old is pres, then I must be vice pres...LOL. Ive been here for a long time. Ive heard, "youre mean", "I dont like you anymore", "why dont you ever let me do anything", "you never listen to me", "we never go anywhere", "you love her more than me", ect ect ect. I could go on, but you get the point. I am sure that with my youngest only being 3, I will be a member for quite sometime. My card hasnt yet expired...LOL
