Mothers are supposed to be the personification of goodness.But there are aberrations too.Do you know any of those bad mothers?

Bala, history would vouch for 'bad mothers' but then they had been a 'bad human' altogether. They were bad mothers bad daughters, bad wives and bad humans. There could be deadly instances of bad mothers but I haven't seen anyone in person. May be some are not competent enough but with their good intentions how could I call them bad!

Even I haven't come across any bad mother who is intentionally bad.They must be a bad human altogether as you rightly put it or else must be an incompetent mother as you and Sandhya puts it.Any way I am proud that we are a bunch of good people to see things eye to eye or as a crowd eyess to eyss.

I am perfectly OK.Though I am not that great at typing this time the typos are intentional. So many eyes. Hence eyess and so on.I tried to be funny Mimpi and I never expected that my joke will fall flat on it's face like this.

Stepmothers are supposed to be bad by lore.But there are some bad mothers who can beat them hollow.

I have witnessed the cruelty of a bad mother.I was in a boarding school.There was one girl who was in my class who used to be really petrified of her her mother.If the mother came to visit her she used to shudder in fear.I have seen the mother always abusing this girl never a knd word.she always had this scrowled look on her face.She would never give her anything.No pocket money no tuck nothing at all.We all used to feel sad for her and we used to pool in and get things for her.Her father used to come visiting alone without the mother's knowlegde he used to be very nice to this girl and she would get lots of pocket money and tuck from him.at times we used to wonder if its her real mother or step mother. It was her real mother ofcourse.In our school finals this girl failed.She was really scared to face the mother.The mother arrived armed with an instruement which is pretty sharp and is used to take out the knots from the hair.She just pierced the girl's palm with it.it was horrible.It took days to heal.It was ghastly.So there some real BAD MOTHER'S who do exist.

Hi B!Long time no see.Yes there are some mothers who are worse than the creatures that crawl out from under the stone.In the entire animal kingdom there is not even a single species that is cruel to its young ones except some stray human beings.Well may be it is one of the side effects of being born with that exclusive intelligence reserved for the humans .Maybe the so called super species can learn a thing or two from the the lovely ones we call the beasts.

Yes.Around me,some mothers exchange their daughters into money.I can't understand. I think some animals are better than them.Athough they give the life to their chilren,they have no right to grip all their fortune.It's unmoral,I think.

yes i have seen. its generally taken that mothers are great. but not always. there are some mothers who just can't behave well with children. in our locality there was a lady who poured acid on her 3 yr old daughter's legs.

I have come across so many incidents like this which keep happening in our country .That only made me to make that discussion.Have you sen in todays Tamil new paper Dinamalar how they are throwing away new born babies in Sale.It is horrid and blood curdling.

Besides the mothers that I read about in the newspaper who harm their child, I have never come across as a bad mother. I know some mothers with bad parenting skills...but their intentions are pure and they do not mean to harm the child. But what they think is good/right for the child isn't really the case. I wouldn't really call them 'bad' mothers....'unskilled' mothers would be the right term.

Hi.It shows that you don't jump into conclusions in a haste.I liked the response.

Thank you! I try not to jump to conclusions because I don't know the situation in full and would be judging them based on just one incident.
