How come, us "moms" are portrayed always as the "bad guys" ??

Is it easier for "dads" to say to the kids: " Wait till mommy finds out about this?"

    Seems to be. I hate it when he says, "Go ask your mother" . I usually ask my kid, "Now who are you again?" ♥

    lol That's actually funny! I was taking a childhood development class in school years ago, and one of the things it specifically mentions is to "Never tell the child 'wait until your father/mother gets home." When the teacher asked us if it ever happened in our homes, the girl next to me said her mom had been doing it for years, but her dad hasn't come home yet.

    We don't do that in our house though. My son thinks both me and Mr Dawna are equally evil.

    That's true now.  But wait because you will be rewarded later on.  When they grow up they themselves will say "Wait till mom finds out I can't wait to tell her"

    I think it is a universal truth written before the very foundation of the universe, that Dads mean Fun and Moms mean Business.

    I've tried to figure that one out for years!! When I became a step-mother, my husband pulled that crap with me, I nipped that in the bud, quick!!I had to put my foot down, and told him this a JOINT agreement and he best, contribute !!!.......He had a guilty conscience, because he was not with them all the time.He didn't want them to dislike him. ... He has come along way !!!!! He is an awesome Dad,now !!!

    for the same reason that dads are always portrayed as dumb and ineffectual i.e..Homer Simpson! Parents are easy targets for self-conscious and immature children

    Dads cannot go against mom's rules or decisions. It's not a dad/mom...good/bad issue... it's survival of the husband issue. :)

    because it's always mom's job to do everything!

    That's so unfair! We should totally tell our husbands it's their turn to be the bad guy! hehe.

    ...even though I'm not a mom....still! lol
