Am I the only one who thinks the people w/ kids who go on the "The Bachelor" shows are the worst parents ever? In general I try not to be judgey, but those parents just deserve it in my opinion. They leave their kids with grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. to go hang out & party & drink in pursuit of some random dude (and more likely in pursuit of the 15 minutes of fame). No you're a terrible parent. The worst. The word abandonment seems most fitting.
These men and women are just the worst parents ever in my super judgey opinion. It's unbelievable how their "colleagues/competitors" on the show try to bill them as "a wonderful mom" "so in love with his son". NO! If you were a good parent you wouldn't bail on your kids to go make out with some random dude on the beach like it's freaking spring break in Panama City!
Grow up and go to a mixer at your church or take a class at your local community college and meet some new people with similar interests. Don't abandon your kid to pursue fame. Losers.
Also, I'm not saying parents who take a vacation now and then are bad at all. Everyone needs a break and time to reconnect with your SO or girl friends.
