What the 10 worst movie moms teach us about bad parenting
Mother’s Day, which is Sunday, is the day we celebrate good mothers everywhere, chronicling their contributions to positive child-rearing and, ultimately, a better society. But that’s not what the following is for.
This is about the bad moms, the worst moms in movie history, who, through some mix of negligence and abuse, have done a real number on each of their movie children.
Note: In many cases, the following mothers were married to equally awful fathers. I do not mean to diminish the role a bad dad plays in raising and messing up his children. It’s just that it’s not Father’s Day we’re talking about here.
