A mean mother never allows candy or sweets to take the place of a well balanced meal.
A mean mother insists on knowing where her children are all times, who their friends are and what they do.
A mean mother breaks child labor laws by making her children work, washing dishes,making beds, learning to cook,and other cruel and unpleasant chores.
A mean mother makes life miserable for her offspring by insisting they always tell the truth.
A mean mother produces teenagers who are wiser and more sensible.
A mean mother can smile with secret delight and pride as she hears her own grandchildren call their mother mean.
What the world needs now are more mean mothers…and fathers!!!
