Which "Bad Mom" Are You?


We might not be taking our parenting cues from Betty Draper, but we all have our shortcomings. Maybe that's why we laughed out loud at this Roz Chast cartoon from The New Yorker. Can you think of a few other "Bad Mom"cards?

We could add: Swears when caught in heavy traffic, even though the kids are in the car. Forgets to ask how the weekly spelling test went, every week. Says, "Fine, you can skip your bath, again. Its only been a few days... I think."

I have been all of these. A friend had a T-shirt made up with these cartoons and we would take turns wearing it when our children told us we were "bad moms." I'm going to pass it onto my daughter.
