  • That's easy! Someone who puts their love life (or partying life) before the needs of his or her children. Someone who keeps bringing new partners in and out of the kids' lives.

  • Physically and verbally abusive. Not feeding them enough to stay healthy. Putting them in harm's way like having an abusive boyfriend come live with them. Not making sure they get an education. No discipline.

  • You take care of yourself better then your children. ( putting your needs first)
    Not taking care of your children and pushing it off to your own parents or family.
    Being a friend and not actually a parent, allowing your teenager to run wild and not show respect and you find that ok.
    neglecting your child so you can party.

  • Someone who shows no love or caring for their child.
    Someone who puts his/her needs and/or wants above that of their children.

    When you have children, you are no longer number one. It is wise as a parent to remember that.
