No one says raising a family is an easy undertaking. All parents have their own struggles and difficulties with kids from school challenges, health issues, financial problems, and really just about anything.
You might think that celebrities have it easier as they have the money and resources to make sure their kids always get the best thing in anything, but it is not always that way.
Being celebrity parents has its perks; for examples they can afford quality childcare and reputable schools as the kids grow up.
As the children reach late teenage years or early adulthood, the parents’ names alone can open up a myriad of job opportunities, including professions in TV or movie industry.
Bear in mind that the vast majority of parents can raise their families in private environments, but many celebrities don’t have such luxury.
They are always in public eye, and no matter what they do as parents will be subject of media scrutiny and criticisms.
That being said, it should never be an excuse for bad parenting just like what the following fathers and mothers did.
10 Michael Lohan
The father of Lindsay Lohan has had multiple widely publicized run-ins with the authorities for a number of charges including domestic abuse.
He probably spends as much time in tabloids as his daughter, yet he never seems to do anything to improve the Lohan family image.
When he is not busy defending himself from charges or giving interviews about his daughter’s drug addiction, he likes to bash his ex-wife for doing a terrible job raising his daughter.
Which is not an entirely inaccurate accusation because Dina Lohan is not exactly known for her good parenting skills either.
9 Nancy Dow
The mother of Jennifer Aniston made appearances in a several movies and TV shows, but Nancy Dow was not as big of a star as the daughter is. Dow passed away in 2016 at the age of 79.
Now everybody knows that she was not actually a good mother too. She once granted an interview about her daughter on a show just to capitalize on her daughter’s success.
When Aniston showed her displeasure for the act, Dow decided to write a book titled From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir in which she wrote about how to cope with estrangement from an adult child.
8 Kit Culkin And Patricia Brentrup
Raising to fame via Home Alone series, Macaulay Culkin seemed to have everything well-prepared for a pleasant comfortable life.
At one point, he was once considered the biggest child star, earning around $8 million a movie by 1994, when Richie Rich came out.
What appeared to be a promising career filled with fortune turned upside down as his parents, Kit Culkin and Patricia Brentrup began an expensive feud over his personal fortune, which during the mid-1990s was somewhere between $17 million and $50 million.
Due to the feud and thereby lawyer fees, the family was close to homelessness.
7 Courtney Love
There have been rumors suggesting that Courtney Love used heroin during her pregnancy.
Whether or not it was true, she did not seem to have any inclination to ensure well-being of her only child, Frances Bean Cobain, even after the death of the father, Kurt Cobain.
As a matter of fact, the daughter was removed from Love’s custody when she was just two weeks old. For many years in
France’s teenage years, life was full of phone calls to child welfare services, restraining orders against her own mother, and court hearings.
