ABC Makes Moms Look Bad on 'American Housewife'

ABC's "American Housewife" is an insult to all mothers and housewives. The network's tagline calls the main character "America's most relatable mom" and "World's Best Mom", but One Million Moms disagrees.

The character playing the mom sets a terrible example and is the furthest from a positive role model for mothers or any women. This character is completely dissatisfied with her life and full of regrets as a mom and housewife. This mother resents her children and treats them terribly most of the time.

She drains all the joy from motherhood. She goes as far as bashing her children and making them feel like a hindrance or catastrophe. Children will also see this program, or at least the previews—which air entirely too early for the content presented—and they will be effected negatively by this distasteful television family.

One of the three child cast members is a Disney star, which will attract young viewers. The content in this program is inappropriate for children and not for family viewing. New episodes air on Wednesday evenings at 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. CT.

Offensive content in the program include sexual innuendos and suggestive dialogue between parents in front of their children, foul language by teen children, and a mom who cusses at the kids.
