Term applying to a suburban housewife who spends most of her time looking after her kids, taking them to and from school, little league sports games, music lessons, etc., in lieu of a career. There are essentially two kinds of soccer moms:
-The bad kind: the one most other soccer mom definitions on this site target. The ones that take rather conservative views and approaches to life, having negative perceptions on most forms of modern music, video games, TV shows that don't feature characters like Spongebob and Mickey Mouse, and any and all signs of non-conformity. The type that feel anything that isn't considered "family friendly" (at least by their standards) should be outlawed.
-The good kind: a soccer mom who hates being such. Chances are that the soccer mom life isn't what they want; either they had bigger dreams and ambitions that never took off or didn't get far, or who convinced themselves they were happy and didn't see the truth until it was too late. Much more tolerant of outside influences and non-family friendly things (so long as no one is forcing them onto their children). Soccer moms like these tend to escape their dull lives by reading romantic-often dirty-novels and frequently getting drunk on wine.
Not all Soccer Moms are stuck up bitches who think their children come before anything and everything else in this world.
