Parental Criticism...are you a bad mom?

Posted by on Jan. 25, 2010 at 2:50 PM

If and when you've been accused of being a "bad mother"...for what ever reason...what is your reaction? Do you get your panties in a twist and get stubborn? Or do you re-evaluate yourself and do something about it?

Clarification: Lets keep CM out of this...I think at one point in time, we've all been negatively judged in some form or fashion on the internet. I'm talking about in "real life" (ugh, hate that term)...just critism from family or friends...not a direct "you're a bad mom!".

well according to CM everything I do makes me a bad mom. But my kids are healthy and happy so I ignore what others say.

Quoting SxyPanamami83:

AMEN!! I have never done anything to hurt my child and I am ALWAYS looking for his best interest. I mean if there were SOMETHING that could even be evaluated, yes I would reevaluate myself, but I always take care of what's mine!! (I LOVE MY BABY!!!) lol

Haven't been accused yet.  I know I'm not the perfect mom, but I do the best I can.  If someone said I was a bad mom, I'd tell them to kiss my ass.

In real life? No. On CM? Probably everything I would do would be considered "bad" but someone but I really don't care what faceless people over the net think.

I was told by someone on CM that I'm a bad mom because I own a tiny "murderous" ball python. Wanna know what I did about it? I went and held my snake and let my 6 year old hold him too lol!!

 Neither, I tell my SO about what they said then have a laugh. After that I go about my business as if I never read their post. I have the mindset of you do things your way I'll do things my way. if I worried about what others do or say I would be miserable all the time.

The extent of American ignorance continues to amaze me

I don't think anyone in real life would ever tell me i'm a bad mom. Now some moms on CM may & I would tell them where to stick it but that's because I think some moms on here just say things to start things. JMO

My teen constantly tells me that I am a bad mother because I set limits and I enforce rules. My 7-yr old tells me I am a bad mom when I don't let him watch TV until his school work is done. My 6-yr old tells me I'm a bad mom when I don't let him beat up on his sister.

I ignore them.
