A mother is at her wit's end with her ex-husband and their three children. After a bitter divorce, they agreed on a 50/50 custody arrangement, but things haven't been going smoothly. The mom's 16-year-old daughter has been spending more and more time at her dad's house, and now her two sons are following suit. After her daughter declared she no longer wanted to stay with her at all, the mom put her foot down and demanded they follow the court-ordered schedule. But is she being too harsh? 🙅‍♀️💔

A Mother's Desperate Plea

This mom has been bending over backwards to accommodate her daughter's emotional needs, but she's reached her breaking point. She's tired of being disrespected and just wants her daughter to appreciate her and talk about why she wants to live with her ex. As her family turns against her, she's left questioning if she's truly being a bad mother. Let's see what the internet thinks of this heart-wrenching situation... 💔😢
