|Oh what a heartbreaking write...but one that many can relate to. With the pressures that come from daily life, being overwhelmed with work, bills, single homes, broken homes, and the evergrowing problem with drugs....I have more children than I can count that come into my first grade classroom whom ask questions about their parents mood swings, of course they don't call them mood swings, they just want to know why one minute mommy is sweet and playful, and the next minute she's screaming at me....sad situation! I guess if we are truthful we have all lost our cool occasionally and become a bit more hateful, or speak with an ill tone when our children was small. My mom did, however on these occasions she would come back and apologize and give us an explanation. Later I realzed that it was stress from working two and three jobs and being a single parent of three children. I have also been guilty of this, but I tried to follow in my mother's footsteps and explain and apologize and talk to my kids. I guess on the occasions that I was a bit hateful, it was due to stress of my husband getting laid off, trying to make ends meet, trying to find a job...and the same as most parents experience. But in the end, myself and my brother and sister turned out fine and we have each raised children whom are just average, happy, successful, and healthy young adults. Your write displays the parent as being human, as well as the child...a thought provoking write...an inspiring write encouraging the reader to be patient....enjoyed this powerful write!

|My daughter fits this perfectly with her 3 yr. old. Single parents (I was one for 13 yrs.)have the pattern on mood swings. Little ones end up taking the brunt. I wish there was a knob to turn back time. Maybe if we all had to take a test and get a license to parent this world would have happy children for once. sad piece Liz, but all to often real.|
