  • i would think she made some terrible decisions and probably belongs in jail unless she is awaiting trial in which case she got lucky to be at home

  • It would depend on if I knew her or not, if they were someone I've known a long time, and just happened to make one stupid mistake, I wouldn't think less of them. However, even if it WAS someone I knew, but it was a continuous thing of making bad choices, than I would probably think they weren't a good mother. Obviously they're not putting their child's best interests in front of them. I would definately say they'd need to get help to learn how to make better life choices and parenting skills rather than have CPS or something take them away right off the bat.
    It's a touchy subject I suppose.

    As for a woman with multiple children with different fathers, I have two kids, both have different fathers. So, no I don't think any less of a woman who has multiple children with multiple fathers.

  • I would not think about it at all . I have so much on my own plate between work and school and taking care of my own back yard.

  • I guess it might depend on the nature of her crime.
