  • A bad mom is a woman to expects everyone to take care of her and her children, because she has no job, no money, and still insists on having more children. I think taking care of your child should be your number one priority. And if you cant take care of the one you have, you should not have any more. Focus on the one you have and try and give him or her the best life you can, that's being a good mom. Not having more and more kids, and none of them are actually taken care of. If you cant afford more than one, don't.
    Also, i think that a bad mom is one who expects her child to learn everything they know by themselves. Like exploring the world will teach them counting. And spends no time actually TEACHING her child anything. And on that track, when the child gets to school, and they are behind, they refuse to accept that he or she is behind, and does nothing to help them catch up. Expecting the school to do all the teaching.

  • To me what makes a bad mom is...........1. someone who doesn't realize children need to be taught everything from day one. Thinking kids are born knowing what is right and wrong and having no patience to teach them. 2. not loving your child unconditionally, no matter what. 3. not being kind, loving, and patient. 4. not letting children be individuals with their own personalities. 5. not accepting that parenting is hard work, but the rewards are unbelievable.

  • To me a bad mom is someone who doesn't put their kids welfare 1st, that doesn't teach them everything from the get go and expects other people to raise and teach their children, that lets them run around all over without knowing where they are and what time they will be home not montioring their habits, not being their for them uncondtionally.

  • A mom who doesn't understand that children are little people, with feelings and personality and doesn't think that they deserve respect.
