Bad Example for Mothers
I live in Istanbul and it plays here on Digiturk, so I occasionally watch it when there is absolutely nothing else on. I kept hoping that it would get better and the mother would evolve, but it never happens. I cringe when I think about Turkish people watching this show and thinking this is the typical American mother because she most certainly is not. Brash, hateful, mean spirited, vengeful......I could go on and on.

She lacks any kind of compassion or understanding and comes across as narcissistic and self- deprecating. She is constantly yelling at her children and thinks she is teaching them worthy life lessons by showing very little understanding when dealing with them. She seems to think a tough attitude will instill positive life lessons. Almost everything she does for her family, she does with the attitude that everyone should be grateful. Her husband tolerates her bad attitude without ever showing any irritation. Can you say wimp or is he simply a saint? Either way, it's very annoying.

The children keep this show from being a total failure and it is much easier to relate to them. Otherwise, this show would be a total flop. I'm surprised it has lasted beyond the first few episodes. Nothing funny about this mean mommy.
