The Middle Cheerleader Mom

Are You the Family Cheerleader?

Moms have a knack for making their children feel like the most wonderful, beautiful, talented beings that ever walked the earth. It seems quite natural for a mother to be her kids' biggest fan — always cheering them on from the sidelines and encouraging them to keep pressing ahead when it seems all the chips are stacked against them. Last night's episode of The Middle had Mama Heck championing her daughter as she discussed her dreams of joining the swim team. After seeing her swim, it was evident that the sport was not her strong suit but nevertheless, the matriarch of the house continued to pat her on the back and sing her praises.
