When a Mom Says She Hates Her Kids

Have You Ever Hated Your Child?

"I hate you!" is a phrase no parent wants to hear, but chances are, they will. When denied the opportunity to do something children want to do — watch their TV show, attend a party, or drive the car — they will utter the unkind words. But what about the moms and dads?

A mother recently confided in me that when her wee ones were younger, she actually hated them at times. As a mother of two, I can understand the moments of grinding teeth, squeezing fists and deep breathing to keep cool, but I've never come close to hating my own kids. Have you?
