As long as they are happy and healthy

I hear that a lot.  Mothers will say that as long as their child/ren are happy and healthy nothing else matters.

I have a friend that takes offence to that.  Her daughter died of cancer and she was told that she failed as a mother because of that.  I think that is mainly why she takes offence to that though.

What is the worst thing you were told about you as a mother?

I have never bees told anything as bad as her, but I was told that my daughter seeks attention from strangers because she doesn't get it from me.  Totally untrue but whatever

No one ever said anything bad to my face but a member of my family has always been crazy jealous of my having a daughter and still is *shrugs* :0D

My in-laws think I'm a crazy, stuck up, "hippy" mom because I do things like breastfeed, cosleep, babywear, etc.

I've had someone say that to me because I breast fed at all.
