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.
