Bad Mom

I have just been informed from what i thought was my best friend that I am a terrible mother because I have a potty mouth and when I get annoyed with my kids i send them out side so i dont lose my cool... I apparently set a terrible example of how a "good person" should act and behave. I am not suzy homemaker and I am not the smartest person in the world I get frustrated with them when they act like brats I do not however throw fits in public I do not disrespect other people especially not in front of them I have taught them to never start a fight but they will finish it so it never happens again. I try to teach them to love each other and stand up for each other. I tried to step up and be the mom that their real mom ran away from... But in the end my closest friend says i am a bad parent...

    She has 2 girls and another baby on the way.. Her girls are very timid and mine have had a rough go of it so far.. Their mother left pretty much 5 years ago and has been in and out of their life when she feels like it. she hasnt seen them in over a year and a half now. I LOVE my kids and even when their father and I split up for a while I still saw them every day to make sure they knew this. I do have a mouth of a sailor and I know I am not the nicest person in the world but I try for their sake to be kind and respectful to people around me. I do not sugar coat things though for them..

      I'm sorry your friend isn't building you up right now. I think you are wise to send them outside so you don't lose your cool. You know what? My parents both swore and I have chosen not to. Swearing doesn't make you a bad parent. I admire you for loving all of your children and taking on the task of raising someone else's like your own. You are the best mom for your children, remember that!
