piss me off. Jessica Stilwell a mother of three girls, twins that are twelve and a ten-year old got sick of her kids not picking up after themselves and went on strike. But this clever mom didn’t tell them she was going on strike, instead she blogged about it daily and figured they would figure it out on their own. After three days the house was so bad that her ten-year-old was crying and asked for help in cleaning up. The mom smugly commented that the payoff was relaxing while her kids cleaned the house.
First and foremost why is this news, why is it trending and why
do people give a shit about Jessica Stilwell and her stupid parenting methods? When you’re a mom you don’t go on strike, it’s a not a union environment and YOU signed up for it. If Jessica were any type of a parent or PERSON she would have explained her expectations to her children. This is a lesson to be taught early on and not with kids who are ten and twelve. Kids are very good about doing what their told but first you have to TELL them. If the kids don’t do what you’ve asked then there are consequences like lost privileges or extra chores.
These kids were blindsided, they didn’t have a clue. Instead of crying to Mom I wish the ten-year-old would have called social services to come
in and assess the situation. Maybe they could have assisted Jessica with her pathetic plight.
Imagine what is running through the minds of the kids. “Geeze the
bitch didn’t even have the nuts to tell us what she wanted us to do and now she’s totally ruined our image on Facebook and public blogs on the Internet. We’ll never get into a good college now and who will ever want to marry us?”
Stay on your toes girls, your mother is an attention whore, the type of person that can’t function unless she is the center of attention. She
will ruin any dates you go on, homecoming, prom, graduation, all holidays and eventually your wedding day if you can ever find a guy who hasn’t heard about this. Lay low and try to pay as much attention to her as you possibly can to keep her from blogging and talking publically about you. Tell her she’s beautiful and the best mom ever, just to keep her off your ass.
I’m sure some teasing and bullying will ensue after word of this
spreads around at school. Don’t tell mom about it or you could end up on Good Morning America because God knows your mother wants to make an issue out of everything. And you should start calling her mother instead of mom. A mom would never give up on you and would never embarrass you in front of the world by telling everyone that you are lazy and don’t clean up after yourself. A mom would teach you the right way to do things and would follow up by letting you know how you were doing and she would tell you that you were doing a good job once in a while.
A real mom would never give up and go on strike. Sure we all have moments where the kids get lax and the house is a mess and there are times we want to pull our hair out but we don’t give up and stop being
mom’s and stop doing what mom’s do, what kind of lesson does that teach the kids?
Now do you see why these stories piss me off? There are bazillion moms out there who are way better mom’s than Jessica Stilwell and they never get noticed or get put on the front page news. But that’s okay because those mom’s don’t mind giving up the spotlight for the reward of just knowing they did a stellar job of raising their kids. So take that and stick it right up your blog Jessica, you are a different kind of mother in my book.
