Bad Mom Advice: Non-Sucky Girl Clothing And Kids Peeing All Over The Place

Bad Mom Advice: Non-Sucky Girl Clothing And Kids Peeing All Over The Place

Ahhh, the usual suspects, Gymboree and The Children’s Place, how every parent knows thee. I’ll admit it, on occasion I get totally sucked into the entire Gymboree trap, because how freakin’ cute is it that they have these lines of clothing where every damn thing coordinates, including socks and hair accessories and teensy tiny purses and shoes and all of that? CUTE! More »

Bad Mom Advice: Teenage Sleepovers Plus I Love Really Women-Hatey Rap Music

Bad Mom Advice: Teenage Sleepovers Plus I Love Really Women-Hatey Rap Music

I can’t think of a good reason to give up my N.W.A. even though I know that the majority of rap music is derogatory towards women and these young boys today being exposed to music that is derogatory towards women doesn’t help in creating a world where men grow up to be less derogatory towards women. Rap music, especially the violent misogynistic stuff should really only be sold to old housewives like me who are able to separate the music from the message. More »

Bad Mom Advice: Everyone Gets A Time-Out And Grandma Sounds Like A Jerk

Bad Mom Advice: Everyone Gets A Time-Out And Grandma Sounds Like A Jerk

How old is too old for time-outs? I would say, I don’t know, maybe around 75. On occasion, when he has had a bad day at work and the kids are begging for a new something or another and the water heater is acting wonky I give my husband a time out. Meaning I suggest he go upstairs and have a nap until he is in a better mood. Hell, almost every day I could use my own time out. I probably need one right now. More »

Bad Mom Advice: Runaway Kids May Just Hate You And Stupid Babies Get Enough Presents

Bad Mom Advice: Runaway Kids May Just Hate You And Stupid Babies Get Enough Presents

I probably would have sat her down and told her that you love her very much and if she ran away from home everyone would be very sad, and also she is not allowed to leave the house like that. If she needs to run away from home she can run away to the backyard. Explain she is not allowed to leave the yard. Then when she does “run away” to the back yard I would say “OK, you can have you alone time, come in when you are ready.” Siblings fight, it is normal. Maybe she just needed space from her brother. If she continues running away there may be more DEEP PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES that need to be addressed but how the hell should I know? I’m not a doctor. And my stupid AC is broken. More »

Bad Mom Advice: Your Daughter – The Pre-Teen Slut Shamer And Your Ex Is A Lazy Sod

Bad Mom Advice: Your Daughter - The Pre-Teen Slut Shamer And Your Ex Is A Lazy Sod

Another thing I’m going to urge you to do is contact the “slut’s” parents. I know some people will disagree with me but if this girl is being called this by two of her peers I can pretty much guarantee she is being referred to as a “slut” by a lot more. The parents need to be aware that their daughter is being bullied, whether if it’s just via a casually passed slip of paper or if it has reached a dangerous stage. More »

Bad Mom Advice: Screaming Toddlers And Naked Kids - Join My Radical #Meltdown Project And Always Naked Revolution!

Think about it, your parent has dragged you to a gigantic place that is usually crowded and most of the time, it is at a time when there are a million things you would rather be doing. There are cartoons to be watched. There are toys to be played with. There are birds! They are outside! There is possibly a bird in your yard! This bird could possibly be doing something amazing like pooping on your parent’s car and you are missing all of it! Plus, your parent has been a total dick while at the store. They have spent way too much time fondling organic grapefruits and checking their cell phone messages and every damn time you want something fantastic like a package of cookies or a brightly colored box of something with a manic looking cartoon rabbit on it your parent has said “no.” More »
