Sometimes, we need a reminder that we really aren’t doing that bad. That even though we get sad, mad, sick or parent from the couch at least we are parenting. When I need a reminder, I often get one from TV or the movies. Here are some bad movie parents that I think will make you feel better about your parenting skills.
Seriously, any form of couch parenting is better than the parents in this movie.
Ok, they didn’t just forget to pick their kid up at school or after soccer practice. They forgot him and went on VACATION!
Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back:
Vader cut off his son’s hand! HIS HAND! I think your child will forgive you for letting him fall off of the monkey bars that one time.
How could her father not see how mean those women were?! He couldn’t have been blinded by their beauty!
3 Men and A Baby:
What on Earth was that mother thinking when she dropped her baby off with 3 bachelors? One of which, could be the father. COULD BE!
At least you’re not trying to be the “cool mom”.
Drop Dead Fred:
I don’t even know where to begin on this one. That mom was just vicious!
Flowers In The Attic:
Do I even need to explain why this one is on the list?
At least you aren’t trying to kill your kids, right? RIGHT?!
There you go. Any of these movies should make you feel better about your parenting skills. I mean, you’ve got to be doing better than these ones?
Am I right?!
