  • for sure its normal.. we all go through those times where we stop and look around and say the same thing. you are not a bad mother.. Or no one is a good mother.

  • no, your not a bad mom, believe it or not EVERYONE goes through this, weather they want to admit it or not, we all sometimes feel like WTF?! I love my kids all of them, more then life itself. Not more then God but I love my kids more then myself or my life and I've felt like that, I've cried thinking I'm a failure as a mother, like what did I do wromg or what did I not do right! We all go thorugh and and I'm sure that my kids will grow up and someday think," is this really my mom? why?!" Don't feel like a bad mom. Atleast you didn't call her names or beat her.

  • It's true we all go through this. I can tell you as the mother of a 12 year old, I still have times when I think, this can't be right. It doesn't make you a bad mother at all. I am sure you are doing your very best! Really what more can you ask of yourself?
