I voted yes because I see it all the time in real life with my SKs mother, in the shrieking mother in the store, or the one who yanks the kids arm in anger, or utters curse words or threats of beating their kids a** etc.... Then of course you have all the stories in the newspapers.

Sorry, XY chromosomes, uterus and ovaries do not a good parent make. I can honestly say I have seen just as many great dad's as mom's and I've seen just as many crappy dad's as crappy moms.

Who knows what really goes on behind closed doors? I know my ex was completely different in public than he was at home. In public you would think he gave his kids his time and was a Godly man and ever so loving and helpful to his wife when in all reality he was far from any of those things.

Uh, so your SKs mom is one person, and the people you see in stores, how do you know they arent SMs?

A Stepparent is as much a parent as an ex-wife is a wife.

I don't think the bad anything occurs as much IRL as it does here.

I think Bad Parent would have been better wording.

OK, you post the question about the Dad and we can compare the results.

"Where in the heck do you live? I've never seen this behavior in public or private."

I've lived many places being a military family and I've seen it everywhere I've been.

She's not the only one I've seen and known about lol. Having friends who are policemen/MPs you hear things etc... I don't know for sure that they aren't SMs but many times things happen and one hears about it from people who know the situation. Are there abusive SMs? Sure, just like there are abusive SFs.

Reading the articles in the paper also shows me such things and in there they differentiate between parent and stepparent.

I see no reason to believe otherwise. I understand that it's difficult for people, especially good mothers, to fathom the concept of a bad mother. Of course, what makes a bad mother also comes into question, and people will have varying views about that.
