The new movie "Bad Moms" starring Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell focuses on the many pressures of mothers in today’s society and how hard it is to be a so called "good mom". The characters struggle to keep up with work, keeping a house, the PTA and raising their kids. Analyze the characters in the film and how or if the movie accurately represents the role of mother’s in today’s society. Discuss the many pressures on mothers today and how a mother’s role is very different than it had been in previous decades.
Very good topic! In today's society there is an increase in divorce rates as well as single mothers who have to provide food, emotional, mental support for the family, and provide financial support as well. There is a strain on the mother especially if she is alone and does not have any additional support. I would not call it bad mothering but how has the expectations of a mother today differ than in the 1900's-1980's. – hwm52114 years ago
This is definitely a relevant topic in today's age, especially given the many double standards mothers and women, in general, face. – padmatat4 years ago
