We've all heard the term "deadbeat dad". However, a new term has been coined "deadbeat mom". A "deadbeat mom" is a woman who closes her children's father out of their lives and won't allow him ANY CONTACT WITH THE CHILDREN WHATSOEVER. The problem I have with this term is often it is used by men who don't own take responsbility for their children to cover their own "deadbeatism". I know this sounds like a strange way to honor Mother's Day, but because I normally do annual Facebook posts honoring both mothers and fathers on their respective days and as part of those post admonish absent parents to reconnect with the children the lost with, I thought I'd touch on this very sensitive topic. See ya tonight!!
