Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

What makes you a "bad mom"? *Just wanted to add*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

None of us are perfect parents, we all do things that others look at as "bad" 

spanking, circumsising, co-sleeping, solids too early, not rear facing long enough, etc...


everyone on here should be able to atleast admit one thing they do that others look at as wrong, so their shouldnt be any "nothings"

Just for fun, you can go anon. 

I'll post mine after i get a few answers.

Remember, JUST FOR FUN. 

No bashing


I'm suprised this went as well as it did. I was honestly expecting fewer people to participate and when i saw how many, i was expecting drama.  

However, a few people did take it as i was calling them bad moms if they happened to spank, circumsize, etc...anything i gave as an example. 

That is NOT NOT NOT what i was getting at. TBH, i plan on getting any future sons circumsized, i co-sleep, my daughter had solids at 5 months, my 9 month old is forward facing. so i'm far from a perfect mom.

Theres only one reply on here that i think doesn't deserve to have kids, and it wasnt even one of the cafemom'ers, it was about someone they knew.

I'm sorry if anybody took offense at that. 


Okay one of my "confessions" was that i forward face my 9 month old, whos almost 10 months now! :)

Im not gonna be one of those who go into the whole "shes over the weight limit, the doctor told me i could, my kid hates riding rear facing etc"

yes i forward face her, have since she was 8 months. 

at first she wasn't over the weight limit to be forward facing, but i chose too. 

Its a pain the in ass to have to put her in rear facing especially when she stiffens out when i put her in their. I've bonked her head on the car multiple times trying to get her rear facing. 

Its convientant for me, i'm her mommy and it was my choice.

I've been pulled over before, actually on new years and the cop saw that she was forward facing and didn't say a word.

and the doctor did say it was fine, but she had already been FF before that.

i will forward face at 9 months again if i need too.

im not a bad mom for it.

i live in a small town, 3000 or less and we go a whole 2 blocks to the store and 2 blocks back.

My ds8 has to read 4 nights a week for homework. Parents fill out a reading log and turn it in at the end of every month. I always fake his. It's not that he can't read... I just forget to make him do it and he doesn't remember on his own. He probably reads about 4 or 5 nights a month.

Any chance you can sneak her some in the form of muffins or "cupcakes?" If so, message me, I have some great recipes that taste like cake but are really loaded with healthy stuff and not high in added sugar.

My 2 year old hasn't eaten fruits or vegetables since she was about 11 months old other than a tiny bite in rare situations.

Why?

Because she won't. The only thing she will eat that is even close to it is those fruit puree pouches but even those are hit and miss.

Does she have a sensory disorder?

What does she eat?

I'm not a bad mom. I'm just... me :)

We all make mistakes. But that doesn't make me a bad mom.
