12 thoughts on “4 Ways I’m a Bad Mom”

  1. Moms are super humans. The love they show and all they do for their family and children goes beyond and above our own limited abilities! It is so important for every woman and mother to make the time to take a break now and again. Fill yourself up so you can be the best mom, wife, friend, that you can be!

  2. I think that parents are so hard on themselves. I definitely think it is a necessity to give yourself a break from time to time and to cut yourself some slack. Think about it… if you are able to look and criticize your parenting, you are already a better parent for having that introspective look at it. You are doing great! I am glad you have a great outlook on this! Can’t wait to share with my mom friends!

    1. Thanks so much Sonja! You’re right, if you are putting the time into analyzing your parenting, you are only trying to do better!

  3. It takes a lot of courage to admit that even as moms, you also make mistakes as you are not perfect. But I’m pretty sure you aren’t a bad mom. At the end of the day, you just want what’s best for your kids/

    1. Thank you! Yes, you are right, as mom’s we just want what is best for them…which can cause us to be a little nuts sometimes 🙂

  4. Not only do I feel like a bad mom, I’m told I’m a bad mom by the ex husband and the mother of my bonus son. I have three growing boys and a two year old girl and they are BUSY. I work from home, but I love to do things when I’m not working but everything has to be planned. And the kids will guilt me, say to their other parents that we don’t make time for them. I also have the kids do chores to earn money—been doing this for years and their other parents hate it especially since they have to spend money for screen time. But I feel they have learned so much from it and it keeps them closer to the 2-hour-tv-a-day limit. It sucks being a “bad mom” but at the end of the day I have to remember why I started everything in the first place. I started working what I do so that I can be around my kids and flexible to take time to be with them. I started the chore/ money system because multiple parenting classes I took encouraged me too. It’s for them and it sucks being labeled as the bad mom and it makes me genuinely feel like a bad mom.

    1. Hi Desirae! I have to remind myself sometimes that thinking “I’m a bad mom” is a reflection of how much I care about my parenting. It sounds like you have good systems in place that will help your kids learn the skills they need to be self-sufficient adults. As long as YOU like your reasons for doing what you are doing and they are leading to the results you would like for your family, then I think you are on the right path :-).
