It’s My Fault

I jump through rings of fire, walk on glass, bend over backwards and would even lay on a bed of nails to make sure my kids are happy and get everything their hearts desire. So why is it that they only see the times I can’t do something or can’t get them what they want at that moment? Its all my fault, I’m a horrible parent, I don’t want to do for them or I don’t want them to be happy according to them. I don’t get the thank you, the hugs, the gratitude or any recognition for all the good that I do. Yet, I get the eye rolls, the cold shoulder, the silent treatment and the resentment for the one or two times they feel I let them down. I don’t get it. What am I doing wrong??

    You’re not doing anything wrong. That’s how kids are. They will not understand your sacrifices and such until they mature.

    • Thank you for your kind words. I’m just not sure how long it will take before they are mature enough to recognize our efforts and sacrifices being that my oldest is already an adult and my youngest is a preteen. I’m just feeling unappreciated. 😒

        Females: 30 Males: 60. Lol. It takes time. My big one disrespected me all the way out the door, so I understand your pain.

      • Oh my, guess I won’t hold my breath. Maybe I should just stop doing for them all together so they can feel what it’s like to not have me.
