A mother whose letter of “instructions” to her husband on how to care for their children while she went on a girl’s weekend has attracted such backlash that she has been told to “beat her children” amongst other types of parenting advice.
Meghan Oeser, a mother of six posted the hilarious list on Facebook where it quickly went viral with more than 150,000 likes and 200,000 shares.
Her list, posted before she took off with some friends for a 48-hour escape, included things like, “Bedtime… Good. F*****g. Luck, buddy.”
And, “It’s almost lunchtime. Just start drinking now.”

She advised her husband that their children, "Quinn, Harper and Bailey will go down seamlessly. Just wait. As they lie in their beds, they'll then realise that their tiny mouths are on f**king fire, and they'll act as if they've just walked 800 miles through the f**king Sahara. They will come down, one by one, every f**king 5 minutes, for water. Don't let ANYONE use Quinn's pink Elsa cup. If she sees this, she will lose her holy shit.”
And “Oh, also...just in case you wanted to get ANYTHING done this weekend...good fucking luck. Quinn cries basically every 5 minutes, and you would think that Penny's esophagus was on certain fire every 4.5 seconds. She'll need constant refills, which leads to more potty breaks. Sometimes she can go by herself, and sometimes she's completely useless and will whine about everything. Including, but not limited to, her underwears feeling funny. Have backup underwear.”
But, after it went around the world and back it seemed everyone had an opinion on it and not everyone found it funny.
She told The Chicago Tribune she had "tons of nasty comments,"
"'What kind of father doesn't know his own kids?' 'Why is she even having kids?' 'What kind of father needs a letter?'"
