The origins of Mother’s Day are darkly tragic so why not take a look at the darker side of Mother’s Day? This lecture will take you on a historical “tour” of what might be considered some of the worst mothers from history that will leave you with a new appreciation of your own dear mom. Murderers? Check. Sociopaths? Check. Abusers? Check. The stories will range from mildly suffocating to downright horrifying. Mother-in-laws included, too!
