That doesn't make a mean mommy that's for sure.

I don't let my 14 yr old wear make-up.

But I DID let her get her lip pierced, so I'm not sure what kind of mom that makes me ;)

My kids must finish their meal or no dessert!  I make their portions according to their age.  If they are hungry enough for dessert then they are hungry enough to finish their meal!  My youngest calls me the meanest mom ever but it is usually when she doesn't get third or fourth portions of dessert!

I actually discipline my children when they misbehave unlike other moms who let their children run wild and be obnoxious brats. They let them do whatever they want.

When my 5 year old is at the dinner table WHINING her head off, I send her to her room.  She thinks it's mean but who wants to eat with an obnoxious dinner companion, child or not?

If being a mean mommy means that I discipline my children when necessary and teach my children manners and right from wrong, then I guess I am a mean mommy and happy to be one!

I don't think I'm a mean mommy, maybe a little strict with my expectations. I do not make them finish their meals in order to get dessert, they just have to make a valient effort. My children a pretty well behaved, maybe that's why I don't have to harp on them too much or be too mean.
