This is a tough question: What do you do when you get to the point where you hate your kid? I don't want to touch or be touched by him, talk to him, listen to his lies, or try to get him to help the family with chores and participate in activities. I've gotten to this point many times in the last 3 years. I've dealt with it by being super angry, igoring him, grounding him to his room. I'm really tired. There has to be a better way. All the therapists ignore my feelings and just tell me " YOU LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!" What if I don't? What kind of parent am I? I guess I hate me more than I hate my kid, but it still leaves me feeling terrible. I don't know how to fix this.
