Later on, I got on Parenting.com and searched "I hate you." And I found this:
When your child blurts out "I hate you!" he's really saying that he's tiredSo, what does this have to do with a pick me up?
and overwhelmed and doesn't know how to deal with the situation.
It helped me realize that:
- My child is normal. This is something most kids do at one point.
- My child really doesn't hate me. In fact, he loves me.
- The more a child understands the concept of hate, the more fiercely he can love.
- The internet can be a great source of information and consolation!
- Websites and blogs like this one are needed for us moms to lift each other up.
I'm sure many of you can relate, if not with this exact situation, then with something similar. I'm so glad I have fellow moms and friends like you who are willing to help and uplift me. And that's what we're all here for -- to do the same for you!
