Are you a better parent than your sibling(s)?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I honestly don't know how it's possible that my siblings and I turned out to be COMPLETELY different with parenting styles, in some ways it's not bad but some ways it's just..AHH!

Yes. My kid never got kicked out of preschool for being "too violent" nor has she ever refused to play gym because "she's tired".

Yes. My older brother hasn't seen his kids in years. Neither of my younger brothers have kids. Dh and I are also better parents than his siblings. His sister Leaves her 7yo and 5yo home alone after school. She also has a discusting house. Dhs brother will never have kids.

All but one brother and one sister. We have pretty similar parenting skills. The others? It's plainly obvious they should've rethought how they did some things....

Unless they are negligent or abusive how are we to determine whose a "better" parent? I hate the whole good mom, bad mom nonsense. Sry I dnt mean offense. My sis was pretty immature when she had my niece and she only knew she was prego for a few weeks so of course she I'd things way differently than I would've but it oes not make me a better mom by any means.

I wouldn't attempt to compare our parenting. We all have very different parenting styles, and different challenges with our children. It's just impossible to compare.

Maybe not a "better" parent than my sister but we both have our stronger suits (I might happen to have more..)

Yes. My sister cares more about being high than working or raising her teenage daughters. She sleeps all the time, takes whatever pills she wants, gets fired almost every year. She's living with my parents and her daughters call me for rides.

We all have our issues but I think my child is definitely way smarter than my niece and nephews and they are all older than her. She has better manners for a special needs child. They are young minded and only want to party while I stay in and spend most of my time with my little one.
