Have you every been around mothers that u dont think should be mothers?

I say this because today i had to deal wit my step sons mother. The school called her 12 times and she didnt answer. Tre was sick and throwing up so my sisterwent to get him. When we do finally get intouch with her shes yelling that shes calling the police. Doesnt say one word about or ask how her son is doing. That is trifling as many parents say that their baby daddy dont do anything she does not have that problem.This is not the first time. She has kept him out of school sayin hes sick but took him to get his hair done. It is to the point that he has missed 11 days of school. What do u do with people like this?

  • I would personally do everything I could to have the custody order redone. Maybe have it say that BOTH sets of parents have to take parenting classes and do this and that. The reason I say both is that she's already causing issues if she feels you're trying to single her out then she could retaliate and no one wants that.

    As for your question overall I don't think there are people who shouldn't be parents I just think there are people who need alot of help understanding how to be a parent. (Of course this doesn't refer to those that kill there kids or abuse them they are a breed unto their own who do not deserve the right to be known as a person.)

  • Yes, alot lately. I live next door to one. I would say parenting classes are a good start. If you ever go to court or mediation......the mediator might suggest she go to the clases. They are a great source of info! I say that because mediation made us go, but because i made a fuss at the time due to father not making good decisions. He made his fuss and we both had to go! I did'nt feel it right that i had to go because i had the kids at the time and had his time on weekends but we went.
