  • Um.... I suppose I would to be honest. Subjecting your kids to that much drama, confusion, etc is not safe or cool in my book.

  • No , but I would assume she needs to learn how to use Birthcontrol . One or two can be counted as "Accidents", but after that there is no excuse!

  • no my dad had 5 kids 5 moms and was a good dad so why shouldnt she be, its none of our business why some people have bad relationships.

  • No I would not assume anything. How do you know what circumstances led to this? I have been married three times. I have 5 kids & yes they have different dads obviously. Had 2 with my first husband, 1 with 2nd & now 2 with my last. How does that make me a "not great mom"? My kids are happy, I get along great with my ex'es & their fact they all consider all my kids family. Why are some folks to quick to judge someone?

  • No I would think she was to worried about finding love from a man ie; co-dependent

  • she could be a great mom but i have to agree that having men come and go in your life is not good for the kids.

  • Yes, she is not a great mom. Those kids deserve dads, and the frustration of dealing with 5 different men would just stress everyone out. She is shortchanging her kids.

    I really hope this is hypothetical.

  • I mean are we talking 5 kids ages infant thru early 20's here? I mean, if they're all close together, that tells me she spent more time trying to "get it right" or find her own happiness instead of devoting herself to her kids (and explaining to them about the comings/goings of the men) ... if trying to find a successful partner/marriage happens over the course of many years/a lifetime that's another thing... 5 kids, 5 dads. It seems like it's bound to create a LOT of weirdness. Child support issues, custody, visitation..... the family would rarely be whole or united. Broken up, scattered holidays and weekends.... it's very un natural.
