  • What about liking others but not yours?

  • I hope so, because I can't stand most teenagers, and mine will eventually be there. =D

  • Yes, it is very possible. I love my son and even like some of his friends, but there are more kids that I don't like than I do. Including the 14 yr old that I take care of, granted she has mental health issues but she does NOTHING to help herself get better. She throws violent fits to try and get what she wants, she lies about everything and anything she can. Her own mother cannot go or do anything because no one will watch her daughter. Her mother is so stressed that I feel she will have a heart attack or nervous breakdown.

  • YES! Exactly. I have felt that way often. Its really hard to like some kids who are snotty, cold, bullies, terrors....and their Moms don't care. I do like some of their friends who are well-behaved and sweet. But why do you automatically have to like everyone else's kids? Its not possible!

  • Yes, its possible. I don't like kids, I actually didn't ever plan on having kids, and could count the number of times i had held a baby/child on 1 hand. My daughter was a suprise! I still don't like kids, but I love my daughter to death. I play with her, read to her, sing to her, do everything mommys do and love every minute of it. So much so that I've decided i want 2 more kids in the future. But I still don't like other peoples kids, and would rather not be around them.
