What makes you a "bad mom?"

 We all do things that some other people think are "bad," whether it's co-sleeping, attachment parenting, starting solids too soon, letting them take their binkies too long, or, like me, letting your kids watch TV for hours.

What do you do that's considered "bad" by other people?

I was a SAHM and didn't go out to work, some feel this was selfish of me. I worked very hard to raise veggies and fruits and to cook from scratch and to do well by the children, so it wasn't at though I lay around and ate chocolates.

I think I am a darn good mom, but I let my kids have their bottles as long as they wanted them, so I think they were 3, which is unheard of nowadays. And I started solids pretty early, I spanked, I never let them sleep with us all night EVER, I let them play outdoors unsupervised, sometimes I skipped "back to school" night. We should ask my kids, they probably have a different long list,lol!

Probably a lot more things than those that make me a GOOD mom!

All that you just named except the pacifier part. Timeout in public and doing the dreaded leash thing. I only do that in crowded areas or as punishment when she has ran off too many times.
