Dear Friends, I am so frustrated, angry and sad that we all have to go through our lives raising our challenging children. I want you to know that I understand your daily pain and suffering. You all are incredible parents for caring so much about your children. I don't know why g-d gave us these gifts....It doesn't seem fair that I (we)have to endure day after day, week after week, month after month. Sure there are days when things are good...but you know what the bad is terrible. Why do these kids push the limits all the time...you give an inch and they take a mile !! Why don't consequences work? Why can my kids hold it together at school and come home and act like total [email protected]%$%. Why can't my boys just get along without fighting all evening? Why can't difficult child 1 just enjoy the afternoon snow and not get into arguments with the neigborhood kids? Why can't difficult child 2 just do his homework---when it will only take him 20 minutes to complete? Why does he chose to stay in his room all night long rather than do his homework? Why do I have to endure this? This is not fun !! This is not fair !! It's such a joke....if people at work or my neighbors only knew what my life was really like-- Thanks for listening !!!
