Tell me that I am not a bad mother, please. I love all 3 of my kids, but I tend to have an issue with getting along with my 6yr old. She annoys me. She is the sweetest little girl you could know. But she annoys me. Her personality and mine just dont mix well, I think. I dont know what else it could be. I hate that I feel this way. She is only 6yrs old! Why do I feel this way? What can I do to feel closer to her? How sad is that for a mother to not really mesh well with her own child?
You can bash me all you want, nothing you can say can make me feel worse than I already do. But if you can help me, I would be grateful.
Is there counseling for something like this?

You are NOT a bad mother and I don't care what anyone else says, they have had this same feeling at some point and/or will. I'm having the same problems now with my 7 year old. I think maybe some 1on 1 time would be a good thing. Go any place with just her. I'm going to do it with my son.

Next question overall
How can I defend myself while keeping details out of it?
