Was your mom a good mom?

Mine was. She was amazing. She was abused really bad her entire childhood, and somehow she turned that sound and became the best mom I've ever known. Everyone always tells me, even other mothers, how my mom was the BEST mom. :)

  • Yeah, she was a great mom. She was also abused as a kid. When I was a child, I didn't think she was all that great, she was a little paranoid about some things. But, once I got older and found out about her abuse, I realized she was a great mom. She rose above it and kept going. :-)

  • no, unfortunately, not. the list of abuses I dealt with at the hands of that woman is to deep to force a bunch of online strangers to read.

    I like to say at least i learned at an early age what not to do.

  • Yeah, my mom was a good mom. She wasn't perfect, but we always knew that she was there for us no matter what.

  • Sadly no. She was selfish and mean, abusive and disrespectful. She was on drugs and wasn't there when I needed her the most. She has grown up some but I am still the adult in the relationship. We are close as long as we are far apart.

  • She is a great mom now that I am older and she doesn't have to find things to occupy me.
