Horrible Mother Syndrome

Yes, this is me, I'm a horrible mother.

The worst is that I do feel like a horrible mother. In my son's eyes I'm mean, I hurt him, he *does* want to go live with his daddy.

Who, mind you will not understand if M. goes to him and says "Mommy hurts me" that it is only because I have to hold him down to feed him his prednisone for the last couple of mornings. Because I do awful things like make him drink his medicine so his ear infection goes away, or his lungs get stronger.

Or that if I yell out of frustration and throw a pillow..... that I'm not hitting him, but I scared him. I just can't do it again. I hardly slept last night because I knew the fight that was coming over the medicine this morning.

And I know that I'm not injuring my son, I know somewhere inside that I'm a good mother.

But it doesn't seem to matter... if my son doesn't think so.

Though quite clearly not one people would call a *kid person*, may I take this opportunity to let you know that there will be approximately 3632 things you do in the course of your son's youth that he will think you are horrible and mean for. But if you love him and the things you do really *are* for his benefit, he will grow up to see the error in his complaints. Part of the parenting process, I think, is that you teach backbone and reason and reality. It has never done anyone ever any good to have been given everything and treated perfectly whilst growing up...it leads up to a hard smack in the face by the world down the road. The world doesn't need any more spoiled children that lack respect and a certain connection to the reality of life.
