who's to blame?
 
do you ever find yourself blaming the other household for traits in the child unfairly? Think about it for a second, how much of it really is the other parents fault? Could it just be a difference in parenting beliefs or do you truly think its "bad" parenting? or vindictive parenting intentionally spoiling the child?

I think as women we already have ideas of how a child should be raised, and to share a child with anouther women who has different parenting beliefs can cause us to unfairly judge the other mother. And if we look at ourselves candidly we can see that we are not as fair as we think we are.

When have you blamed the other household for something that may not have been completely thier fault?

Well, I don't think I unfairly blame her for anything. I think I have sometimes blamed the kids for things that they can't really help (and I regret that), but in all honesty she was/is a bad mother and I think the things she has done and continues to do to them only proves that.

I could go on and on and on about why I think she's a bad mother, but I'll spare you the gruesome details. Suffice it to say that I don't think any of my anger/blame at her is displaced. ;)
