Parenting sucks!

I know its taboo, cause are so 'precious', but on the whole, being a parent is a negative experience. Don't get me wrong, I love my 18 mo old son to death, and I've learned a lot about myself since having him. But, its not worth it to me. I can't sleep well anymore, even if he doesn't wake up. I get mixed messages, he'll hit me then run to me for a hug. Maybe all that wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't in a ruined relationship, about to get a divorce. Which all started because I was pregnant. That's when our marriage went hopelessly downhill. I really feel like I was duped by society, family and friends, and mother nature. I'm in the most miserable spot I've ever been in, and I can only hope it gets better when I finally move out of the house in two months. To where, I don't know, which adds to the stress. If I make it that long.

  • Grow up and grow a spine you whiny b****. You have a child and that child depends on you for it's very survival. Get it together and stop putting your self before your responsibilities to your child. The problem with all you under 30 types is you had it too easy growing up, you were over stimulated and spoiled by parents that were too busy working and feeding their own bullshit to properly raise you. No one taught you the how to be responsible for your own actions and you never gave a s*** enoughto bother to learn anyway. Sort your life out and try to remeber that it's not always All about YOU.

  • Wow, you either a person who has NEVER had a child before and don't know the emotional toll it takes by raising a child, or you are one of the mombies that are self righteous

  • I feel the same way.

  • Isn't there someone you can talk to about these problems? :(

  • Parenting is hard work! Sounds like your child is reaching the terrible two's and also reacting to what's happening in his household. Life goes on.. move out and make sure that your home is as chaos-free for your son's benefit. Maybe put him in day care a couple times a week, if you can afford it. Ask for help when you need it. There are resources available, you just have to look. You still need some "me" time. Don't neglect yourself.
