A mom who snaps at her kids often and is generally irritable around her kids (but- she does everything else by the book, she doesn't smoke, doesn't drink, she breastfeeds, she doesn't spank, doesn't let them cry it out, etc).

OR- a mom who is usually in a good mood, and is playful and affectionate with her kids (but- she also smokes, occasionally has a few drinks, formula feeds, spanks, lets them cry it out after 6+ months, etc).

Which of these is worse for the child in your opinion?

Which is worse? Probably mom #1. It sounds like she has some personal issues to work out. I would hate to be around someone who is constantly irritable and unpredictable.

Geez.. great choices! I'm going with #1. At least child #2 would be happy.

Mommy #1 is worse. A happy mom is necessary for happy kiddos.

Well I would say mom #1 is worse because mom #2 is me, lol. (Except that I don't smoke anymore)

I'd say mom #1. A kid can be happy with a parent who smokes and can grow up healthy being formula fed. It is hard to overcome that feeling of walking on eggshells around a moody parent (trust me).

I've got to go with number one...

But then, I don't like the implication made by the OP that AP is right and TP is wrong... That formula feeding is bad... And that all moms who drink, regardless the circumstances and how responsible they are about it, is wrong... I just generally don't agree with the presentation of the question.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!
