World's Worst Mom is a television show, airing on the Discovery Life channel, that aims to highlight the often irrational fears of helicopter parents who like to smother their children in cotton wool and prevent them from experiencing the world for themselves.

The show stars Lenore Skenazy, who has embraced the satirical title of World's Worst Mom as a protest against parents who over-parent their children and protect them from the world.

World's Worst Mom isn't meant to make fun of these parents, but rather highlight their fears in the hopes that they will change, which they do. The show does a great job shedding light on the paranoia surrounding parenting in modern-day America, and hopes to encourage parents to give their children a little more freedom.
