Parents reveal why they secretly hate their own children!


You are not a parent until you have screamed at three in the morning "what have I done to deserve this?
"Postnatal depression and feelings of resentment towards children after they are born are not uncommon. According to Mind, between 10 and 15 per cent of new mothers experience more than the usual 'baby blues', in the form of postnatal depression. Several support groups exist for parents who feel overwhelmed by having children, such as Mind, PANDAS, and Mothers for Mothers. Parents seeking reassurance that they are not alone in thinking negative things from time to time can speak to any number of other parents through the above websites, councillors or their GP. There's always someone to listen. There are also a staggering number of online confessions from parents that can maybe ease the feeling of isolation. The confessions app Whisper has collated some of the most negative, yet also reassuring confessions. I hate my daughter. She is so much like me that I can't stand her. There are days I want to give her away. She's 7.
I hate my kids. I know I have to love them. But I don't have control of them. And I hate that about myself. Not that I want to control them I just want them to respect me and our belongings. I failed. I hate my kids. They act like entitled brats and I have no idea where they are learning that kind of behaviour. I always encourage respect but they have none of it. I secretly hate my kids. They ruin everything and my parenting skills suck. Not a day goes by where I'm not fixing things they've broken.
Sometimes I hate my kids for their inability to follow direction and it makes me feel like a terrible mother.
I hate my children. No matter how much I teach them, they've got no intellect. If I could go back in time I wouldn't become a mother.
Sometimes I feel like I hate my kids. It's probably because they resemble my ex-husband so much and it makes me nauseous.
I hate my kids. They're 12 and nine and they are so disrespectful to adults. I try so hard to raise them well and I get treated horribly. I just took away all their toys and said they may be no Christmas this year.
I really hate my kids. When they are being unbearable, I go to my room and flip them off through the door and think really horrible thoughts.
I really hate to admit this but I hate my children. I feel like they've trapped me in a life that I never wanted. I can't remember the last time I was happy.
I really resent and am starting to hate my kids. I'm thinking of sending them to their father so I never see them again. They don't seem to appreciate how good they have it.
Sometimes I hate my son. Since the divorce, he goes out of his way to rebel against me in favour of his dad. The harder I try to fight the more hopeless I feel. Have I failed?
No. Children are capable of cruelty too.
Sometimes I hate my kids. They ruined my relationship with their father. Things were going so great before they came along.
I secretly hate my children, they bring me nothing but torment. It scares me that I could run away and be perfectly okay with leaving them behind.
I hate my son. He is selfish, lazy, and blames me for him not being successful but isn't willing to try at anything. I can't wait for him to move out. I feel guilty for feeling this way.
This last one sounds legit:
I hate my children. They never go away and want to be coddled even they're grown adults now.
