Your preschooler may wear the same grungy t-shirt for a week and today you found the baby eating three-day-old Cheerios off the dirty, pet-hair-covered floor, but don’t worry, mama -- we're pretty sure you’re doing a much better job than these bad television parents. Check out our list of top offenders.
Max & Ruby
Greatest crime: Absenteeism
Out of Max and Ruby’s 40 episodes, the bunnies’ parents appear in exactly none of them. There’s never even a mention of them -- even when Ruby wants to take the city bus to a playdate. The seven-year-old bunny essentially does everything for herself and her three-year-old brother, Max. She feeds, clothes, bathes and disciplines him -- she even turns on the oven by herself!
