20 Awful TV/Movie Parents That We Love To Hate

20 Awful TVMovie Parents That We Love To Hate

Seems like movies and TV shows are incomplete these days if one of their prominent characters doesn’t have mommy or daddy issues. We’re talking about awful parents and their poor parenting. I can’t be the only one who gets easily bored by watching those perfect families. It’s an unmatched thrill to watch these terrible parents who abuse, neglect, and sometimes even attempt to murder their own children in movies and TV shows.

Now, to put it to you there are many types of terrible parents. We have the overbearing kind, overprotective kind, the lying/manipulative kind, or even the psychic kind. You honestly don’t need to understand them much. Here are our top picks of the worst TV and movie moms and dads that we all love to hate.
