Worst Mom in the world!

According to my children, I’m the only parent in the world who takes away internet and electronics as a consequence when they are misbehaving (I was told I’m the worst mom in the world 🙄). So I told my children that I’d make Anonymous post on facebook to prove him wrong.. So, I’m just wondering who else takes away internet or electronics from their children as a consequence for talking back/misbehaving??

    Not the worst mom in the world – I’d do the same thing if I had kids.

  3. Just take them away and be consistent and not worry what your children say. They will thank you for it later.

    My kids just went six months with zero access to anything electronic whatsoever! Six months! Homework is more important than phones and xboxes in my house!

  5. I do as well. And my kids on average are only allowed a show or 30 min at the end of the day unless its just a blah lazy day then we watch movies or whatever

    100 percent my daughters consequence for. Misbehaving and other notables is removal of her electronics

  10. You’re doing awesome. Keep it up. They are saying you’re a bad mom only because they are not getting their way. I know we live in a world revolved around electronics but kids need to get mobile. They need to go out and play and interact with other kids. I agree they need some down time as well, so allowing them some electronics is ok too, but of course in moderation. You’re doing great. Keep it up. Its for their own good!

  11. Back in my day, we had spanks, fly swatters, spoons at our butts …principals gave out straps or ruler on the hand of a child for their behavior.

    • And we could be darn sure if we got in crap at school the punishment at home was twice that…none of today’s “My kid would never do that” bull

    • Lynn Yolande Thomas and that generation of kids were raised with alot more respect

    • The school’s these days dont even inform parents anymore about children’s behaviour, my little sister was just bossing some kids around at school (telling them sit down , its lunch time , turn the tv back on .. things like that) ans the 2 girls who wouldn’t sit down went over grabbed a pointer stick(I didnt realize those were still a thing lol) poked her in the ribs with it and the other one pushed and shoved her said nasty things to her and the teacher gave my sister trouble and turned to the other 2 and said “dont do that again or you’ll be in trouble ” the only reason any of us knew this happend was becasue my daughter told me , we weren’t infromed at all and were told by the teacher the two who shoved her arounds parents have no idea about it either!!! And basically they feel it’s been dealt with so theres no reason too , might be a reason some kids are acting up the schools do nothing and parents aren’t made aware to do anything, we’ve spoken to her about being bossy and worrying about her self and what shes suspsoed to be doing but the other parents aren’t able to fix the situation with their children

    I had my phone and internet taken away multiple times and not just for a day or weekend. I also had to write an essay on how the internet worked(downloading,uploading,ect) because I kept going over the limit/cap. I eventually got my own internet in my parents house. Seems mean at first, but I learned my lesson.

    Absolutly… misbehave=no electronics
    In my house (my 8 yr old and i) I do not allow internet and video games to be a priority in our lives. I strongly beleive in limiting time on tv and vids. Homework and after school sports only leaves limited time for social media and vids as it is.. our children have a funny way of making us feel so bad. Dont fall for it, just you disciplining for bad behaviour says your a GREAT mom. We need to raise gentleman, boundaries are good.

    P.s my sister makes my 9 yr old nephew do chores for video game time.

  23. like I tell my children when they say I’m the worst mom ever… ” thank you for making me aware that I’m parenting the right way!”

  29. I got permission to make a facebook account as my 16th Birthday present. My mom had my password, and my sister and I had 30 minutes on the home computer each, per day. My moms favourite saying was “the more you hate me, the better I’m doing my job!” When I was younger I was upset and felt like I was the only one facing such strict regulation regarding the web. However, I’m now 23 and AND SO GRATEFUL that my parents cared enough to limit my internet time, because I played outside and communicated with my friends face to face, instead of online. I also was not allowed a cellphone until almost the end of high school, (I was working since 15, so I could afford one) however, it was not something I was permitted to do. I think I turned out alright, so props to you! I wish more parents would step up and discipline their children. That’s how contributing members of society are made.

  30. Are you even doing the parenting thing right if you dont get told your the worse parent ever? My kids get privileges taken away with bad behaviour.

    Awesome! I have an app that allows me to turn off internet to specific devices so I totally agree with OP. It’s necessary sometimes to limit internet when boundaries are pushed. Thankfully I’ve never had to actually do it.

  52. Andie Cerson Andie Cerson says:

    lol …. ahhh, this post made me sit and think fondly back to the first time my son and daughter each slammed their door for the first time in their lives (It took everything I had not to start laughing when my daghter did it because she was only 5. But Ive never reacted to the action and it never happened more than maybe twice each. Slamming the door is not something we do here and since they didnt get a reaction for it, it didnt seem to go far). The time my son got mad because he planned to take Ojibwa at school instead of french – I am not against having that as an option, but for our particular family needs and his dads side being french, I opted french for him. His response was “Youre messing up my life!”.
    When theyre on a “no electronics” round, that means NO SCREENS, period! No tv, no xbox, no tablet, no phone, no ANYTHING that is electronically pleasurable. If I send you for a breather in your room (usually the door remains open, and we can still chat), then grab a book or write a song on your guitar, or fiddle with your circuit boards youve been building …. but do not let me catch you with a screen lol.
    Even when my kids are NOT banned from electronics (which has been anywhere from 24 hours to 2 months at a time for various choices they made), I have them take a “game break” if theyve been on too long. They do good with this. I tell them that a game break is in 5 minutes, and then they plan what they want to switch to.
    And like Shawna Leah said ….. we are many and we are strong lol (I died reading that one!). Im the mom, I’m not your friend …. I will always give an ear and talk when you need a friend, but my opinions and advice will always be those of a loving mother …. which means pissing you off sometimes because its not an automatic take your side kind of thing lol

    My 6 year old is limited to 2 hours of video games on weekends, none during the week. If his attitude is crap or he doesn’t do his few chores, then he loses those two hours. And if his attitude goes to crap after playing his games, then he loses it for the following weekend he is with me.

    [0]
  76. Every parent who actually gives a damn is “the worst parent in the world”.

    [0]
  77. I’ve not only taken electronics, I’ve taken everything but their bed and dresser. No where does it say I must provide these things. So if there is behaviour that needs privileges taken away, rest assured I will go all the way to a mattress on the floor and something to hold your clean and dirty laundry being the only things my kids have left. Needless to say I only had to do it once. I have also taken their doors off the hinges when slammed. Same result each time. 3 kids have slammed their door in anger. 3 doors have been removed for 2 days each. And they haven’t been slammed since. 2 of my kids are now grown in their own and my youngest is 16. No doors getting wrecked in my house

    [0]
  78. If your kids don’t say your the worst mom ever when your parenting them I think means you aren’t doing a good job as a mom so think of it as your the best mom when they say those things to you

    They had this same scenario on the show “Man With A Plan” last week. He just had the internet password on a rotation day by day. You behaved and did your work….you got the code.

    [0]
  82. When I was grounded as a kid or had bad grades, I had no stereo, no tv, no computer, no internet. If I was grounded, it was a week without all that. Stayed in my room, read, did home work, studied, ect. That’s it. It’s not wrong to take away those things. They have to learn it’s a privilege-they gotta earn it. Trust me, i’d do the same if I ever have kids. And no buying them cell phones and shit like that. Go play outside like we did in our time.

    [0]
  83. Mine gets a hour a day and if they bad at school they loose them

    [0]
  84. Basically if your kid doesn’t hate you at some point of them growing up your doing something wrong lol

    [0]
  85. We are all the worst moms in the world when something gets taken away or tell them NO from are spoiled selfish children. You can tell your child that you are not the only parent who takes things away from them, but I believe that a good back hand or smack Should be allowed without children’s aid being called. When I was younger and did something wrong I got a good beating for it and believe me I never did it again. So having something taken away from you must be such torture for the poor thing. Might actually have to have a conversation or read a book or omg go do something outside. You have it easy sunshine so get over having something taken away and if you did as your parent said then it would not be taken away. So listen and respect your parents.

    [0]
  86. I did and only from 10.30 pm to morning…. And you would think I was taking the world away. Omg

  89. I take away electronic privileges as well! It is a powerful tool and often necessary

    [0]
  90. I think this is sometimes overdone……..by that , I mean…….these electronics are also used for research for school and other learning…….the idea of sending them outside to get fresh air,, etc……is good…….I also am saying that the social media is not making our society so much better though………people do not communicate…..do not speak on the phone……losing a lot……..I think it is so easy…..first thing parents seem to be doing…….taking away the electronics……..for long periods……..they have forgotten any other way to discipline.

    Bahaha lucky they aren’t my kids, I’ve thrown my son’s phone out! He hasn’t gotten a telephone since. His face was priceless, he didn’t think I’d ever do that. (By the way it was an old iPhone 4 that he used to go on wifi) his friends were so surprised and said wow don’t mess with her! Haha

    [0]
  110. A 12 year old with a tablet.. lol wow.

    [0]
  111. I do this too. But also get them to earn time on phones/electronics by doing daily chores. My son lives breathes & sleeps football (soccer to some) so to be fair he is outside a lot.

    [0]
  112. On Tuesday, Thursday and sundays are NO electronic days in our house.
    If they misbehave then yes my husband and I will take away electronic privileges. So that means we take away a day that they have the privilege which means a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday.
    Electronics are a privilege in our house. We must provide them with the necessities of life and last I checked, internet and electronics ARE NOT a necessity.

    [0]
  113. We periodically disconnect our kids all the time. And when they’ve done something wrong we take their phones for however long we see fit.

    [0]
  114. My 13 year old is currently on lock down and has been for 2 weeks. No access to social media what so ever. Her behavior has changed alot in the last 2 weeks. First day was rough she threatened to call CAS. I laughter and dailed for her.

    [0]
  115. Oh ya. My go to for my 3 year old is turning off his tv. Consequences will get more severe as he gets older for sure! Removing electronics or changing the wifi password is super easy now

    [0]
  116. definetly a good consequence for misbehaving

    [0]

    James Laforest what’s wrong with that?

    [0]
  130. I don’t even give my kids any electronics/video games in the first place. So you can just imagine how harsh my consequences are. I’d wear that “Worst Mom in the World” title as a badge of hounour. When your kids say it, it means you’re doing something right.

    [0]
  131. Bawhahahaha you tell your kids I take the “internet box” to work when I leave. They don’t get it back until chores are finished.
    Now, if they’d have done their chores without argument, they’d never lose it.

    [0]
  132. Any parent who doesn’t hold their kids accountable in some form or another, will end up with entitled little asshats who, once in the real word, will also not want to work properly, or do much for themselves at all for that matter.
    Being tough on kids tends to prepare them for real life. We have enough lazy ass people as is..

    I take my daughters tablet. We have an agreement. She can have 1 hour and take 2 doing reading, writing, coloring, or whatever she would like to do. The internet isn’t a necessity to younger children. Just pull out the wifi cord every few hours. Make it habit.

    [0]
  138. I have 3 children at home ages 8 to 12. They lose the wifi a few times a week while chores are issued so their is no distractions. We also take away electronics if they are disrespectful, etc…

    So while your son feels he’s the only one, it just means you’re doing great as a parent.

  139. I do it all the time and if they ask for it within the 24 hour time period it’s gone for another 24. The minimum time I take electronics away for is 24 hours and my kids are
    Older too

  140. In my day, we had no electronics at all and if you were grounded it usually meant no TV from one of two stations we had. Kids today say they have it rough, OMG they would never have survived the 60/70’s!!

  146. Why is this a question! Your a parent not a friend, you bought those electronics (I’m assuming), they are a privilege no matter. You pay the internet and the rent/mortgage and food. Your house your rules! It’s the same in my house.

    I remember the first time my dad took away computer privileges when I was like 13 and it was torture.
    I feel like as a parent that would be the one way to ensure a chance of behavior. What a time to be alive when it’s a worse punish to go outside and interact with the world than to be stuck in the house XD

  179. I do it all the time. Only thing that works lol

  187. Megan Matovinovic and you turned put AMAZING

    [0]
  188. Yes, these days technology consumes our children in such an unhealthy way. The entire point of a consequence is the effect or result of ones decision to make the wrong choice. If electronics are the key to your child bust that lock wide open. I’ve found that the most effective way to discipline these days is to make sure the consequences have meaning and worth to our children. Best of luck, and welcome to the “worst mom ever” club.

  189. I definitely take electronics away.

  199. CONGRATS MOM…more parents need to follow in your footsteps. ACCOUNTABILITY—-is love DISCIPLINE————-is love RESPONSIBILITY —-is love CONSEQUENCES—-is love So often parents are misguided in having to be a friend to their children. We didn’t become parents to become their friend, we are here to guide, encourage, support and help them become responsible and caring human beings. Kids who learn what work ethics, respect and kindness truly means. NOT FOLLOWING THROUGH on consequences leaves children to learn how to manipulate, how to cut corners in life. I always followed through on consequences with children in my personal and work life. Kids learn RESPECT through actions. IF YOU SAY you lose your devices for 1 week, parents please do not give in after day 1-2-3 cause you don’t want to deal with them whinning. Instead it’s another day added for each time they argue, buck or whine. TOUGH PARENTING……..is often GOOD PARENTING. KIDS always tell me they don’t try their tactics with me cause it won’t work…kids learn how to play people, how to play on emotions, guilt and so much more. If you don’t want to raise a child to become an adult who continues these poor behaviors….DISCIPLINE …NOW! To your son…….you are blessed to have a mother who cares and loves you enough to guide you on the right path!

  203. Jessica Dunn Jessica Dunn says:

    Then we must been ever worse parents over here! My kids 13, 10 and 7 yrs old only get their electronics on weekends. Not allowed electronics during the school week(unless needed for homework) as it interferes with chores and home work. Been doing it for about 2 yrs now and they’ve adapted to it. Rather than taking it away when misbehaving, we give it to them as a reward.

    [0]
  204. Sometimes I take tablets for the entire week. Sometimes the TV doesn’t even get turned on for a week here.
