  • There is a couple in my community that has a five year old and the girl is pregnant with twins, and they are the biggest cocaine addicts I have ever seen in my life. It's so sad and unfortunate....and scary.

  • Yep I do. My dds inlaws are horrible parents. They had 7 kids, all grown, never worked, not their kids dont work either. They all live in a 2 bdrm dirty house with mom, dad, son, his gf & 2 kids and no one works.
    I also know a girl whose had her kids taken from her and cps involved because she shaved their heads from getting lice so often, and sent them back to their dads with roach bites.

    I see lots of bad parents in the area I live in. Just so much to list *sigh* not enough room to write it all down.

  • It's sad how many there are out there. I just shut my eyes, cause there is mostly nothing you can do about it. Example my sister. She has 2 babies. and lives in a horrible situation. She is a good mom but lives in a bad relationship. He's a major looser, and is more worried about having his weed than anything else. Plus they are around others that allow their kids to call their mom F'en B's and now my nephew is picking up on that last I heard. I just stay away, It's her choice

  • One girl I know has 2 kids and is always leaving her bf and causing drama. They end up homeless and living with his parents all the time. I go there and the kids are in the same clothes for days. I am talking DAYS like 5 in row. They dont have clothes for the kids because mom spends all the money on fast food. She refuses to work and is on food stamps & medicaid and lies to the state to get it. Her kids are obese, she lets them eat cigarette butts and claims its because she smoked while preg so they have withdrawels. The little girl and boy are always sticky and dirty to where they get rashes from not being clean. Its aweful.

  • My step son's birth mom is a TERRIBLE mother. He is almost five and autistic. She uses his autism as an excuse to not parent right. She outright refuses to help potty train him, she only feeds him junk food. She uses the excuse that he won't potty train or eat anything else at her house.

    She puts him in inappropriate clothing for the weather, dirty clothes, and never brushes his hair or his teeth. She again makes up excuses from his autism for all of these.

    She can't keep a job and also blames it on his autism.

    Well we have none of these issues at our house.

  • yep, my aunt has 2 girls, and from the day they were born, she has drug them around from pillar to post. She is really bad on meth or something, they make it themselves. Anyway, she is the worst mother in the world. The sad thing is that cps has been called several times, but they don't do anything about it. Now the girls are 9 and 10, and they are already sexually active and probably doing drugs too. It is awful and heart breaking.

  • I know a lot of bad parents. My sister for one. She is legally blind, which is very sad, but she uses it as an excuse for everything. She is on the internet or sleeping 24/7, and she dates men she meets on line. That's not wrong, but its SEVERAL men, and she lets her daughters meet them. Her kids will be in their pjs from friday until sunday, sometimes, when she makes them change for church. And church is another thing..... she goes there and acts like she's mother of the year. I wish they knew the real her! I live next door to her, and my parents (3 houses), and when my brother and his family come to visit, she acts like she's a wonderful mom. Its pathetic! There's a lot more than I listed, but those are the "high points" of her bad parenting.
