Anonymous Dr. Lord College writing I March 15, 2008 Rosa Lee Was a Bad Mother Rosa Lee was a horrible mother. She did not care for her kids at all. The reason why she is and was a bad mother is because she encouraged her kids to do drugs and gave them money to buy drugs. Rosa Lee didn’t care at all about an education for any of the children. The location she decided to raise a family was in worse place. Rosa Lee did have a choice because the country also has cheap homes and apartments but she chose to live in the ghetto of a major city. Most of all, Rosa Lee wasn’t a good role -model. The only things that Rosa Lee cared about were her fix and necessities to keep the chaotic family alive.

That is something that Rosa Lee will never forget. What Rosa Lee told Bobby is not something that he is going to want to remember for the rest of his life. The things that Rosa Lee showed in this paragraph showed her poor character, irresponsibility, and selfishness.
