This ‘Bad Mom’ Is Embracing The Title

This ‘Bad Mom’ Is Embracing The Title

This “Bad Mom” is wearing the title like a badge of honor.

When it comes to bad moms, you could probably do a lot worse than Sia Cooper, a personal trainer and mother of two. She posts a lot of what she does to social media, and as a parent, some of it has to do with her kids.

But the internet is a harsh place. Cooper has been criticized for everything, from having tattoos to working out while pregnant. In a recent Instagram post, Cooper decided two let go of all pretense and embrace the name “bad mom” while also blasting back at all the haters.

“If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been called a “bad mom,” I would be soooo rich!” Cooper begins her rant with hyperbole, but soon gets into the meat of her griefs. “It seems almost impossible to be a textbook or politically correct good mom these days because everywhere you turn another mom is judging your parenting choices. Am I right?”

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve been called a “bad mom,” I would be soooo rich! It seems almost impossible to be a textbook or politically correct good mom these days because everywhere you turn another mom is judging your parenting choices. Am I right? I’ve been called a bad mom for: Workout out during pregnancy. Working out while having kids... period. For caring about my looks and health. Working out in Target. Using canned goods and plastic crockpot liners. Having tattoos and piercings. Enjoying wine every now and then. For letting my kids use technology. For letting my kids have sugar and happy meals occasionally. For not “covering up” around my kids. For running a full time business from home. For co-sleeping with my kids. For collecting sports cars and motorcycles aka having a hobby. For taking time for myself. For having abs. I’ve learned that the true “bad moms” out there are the ones who constantly tear other moms down by judging them. Those moms are the ones who are truly insecure and have strong feelings of inadequacy because why else would they do that? Misery loves company. There’s no one right way to parent or to be a mom. We all are running in the same race and doing the best that we can. Motherhood is not a one size fits all-what works for one family may not work for the next. So who are we to judge another mom’s choices or reasoning? Being a mom is hard enough and if all the following make me a “bad mom” then I’ll gladly wear it proudly!

Cooper then went on to list her reasons for being a “bad mom”, including working out while pregnant, working out after being pregnant, working out in Target (OK, the haters may have a point on that one), “using canned goods and plastic crockpot liners,” “having tattoos and piercings,” and “enjoying wine every now and then.”

She’s also faced criticism for what she lets her kids get away with, from letting them “use technology” like iPads and cell phones, to allowing them the occasional sugary snack.
