Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I am a horrible mother and proud of it.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Or so some of you say. I yell at my kids when they are acting up...if they don't listen they get a pop on the butt. I pop them on the mouth when they disrespect me, my husband does the same. If they aren't ready to listen, they don't get up from the nice chair (time-out). I don't care if they have to sit there for 20 minutes. If they don't pick up their toys, I take them away. If they freak out, it is automatic bedtime. I have rules, and they listen. I love them and they love me.

If that makes me a horrible mom, I am proud to take that title. I am not raising entitled brats.

Everyone has thier own way of diciplining thier kids. Some methods work for some kids and some meathods dont. Spanking works for some kids and raising your voice works for some. To each thier own when it comes to parenting, so dont bash people for doing what is best. If the kid isn't being harmmed to the point where it coud be fatal then let parents be.

I know this will probably cause an uproar but i firmly believe that if you love your kids and want them to go in the right direction...then you spank them if they need it. So i dont think what you described is a bad mom at all. Your doing your job as a parent. I have met a lot of people who are tatally against spanking and for the most part they are the children you see running like crazy people all over the resturaunt while the parents eating are oblivious to their distraction to other people. Those children are harder to control and dont take their parents seriously and most of the time BRIBE their children into doing what they want. They are usually the children that no body wants to watch or that other people dread having over their house. I have encountered this more in children that the parents dont believe in spanking and only try to comprimise with their kids instead of bing firm and demand obedience in their kids or have consequences. Sorry if people dont agree but this is my views.

Oh i'm a horrible mother then too.  I will not let my child be disrespectful.  If she acts up, i tap her bum and it's definitely more of an injustice that i'm doing it than hurting her.  And when everyone says " oh what a well-behaved little girl you have" i guess i can answer, "thanks, it's because i'm a horrible mother"

The proud way you write about putting your hands on your children is super classy.

Discpline can be attained without getting physical. And those of us that refuse to "pop" or "smack" or"tap" our children dont all have entitled brats for children.

My parents beat the shit out of us as kids and my sisters are the most entitled spoiled brats in the world.

A friend of mine mearly got "spanked" as a child and she is a little princess brat!

I have never laid a hand on my kids and they are polite and well behaved.

Then maybe she should have taught you better as a small child so that she wouldn't have to threaten to hit someone in the face who is plenty old enough to know better just to get some respect.

My parents didn't have to hit or threaten to hit me in the face to get that.

Oh please! When I was a teen I was being disrespectful to my mom. She threatened to slap my face. I would've deserved it too if I did not stop.

The ontly thing I really have a problem with is you hitting them in the face. That is abuse, argue all you want but it is abusive. Respect is earned not popped into someone.

I'm the same way though I no longer tap them in the mouth for being disrespectful because my cousin's ex psycho cunt of a girlfriend called CPS on me for doing so and according to them I can't do that and I thought telling the CPS worker to go fuck herself wouldn't have gone over well.

She sure did teach me better. I still turned out to be disrespectful to her when I was in high school. I don't blame her for wanting to smack my mouth.
