  • Yes, it's happened to me before. I have gotten so frustrated that I just ended up crying.

  • My kids make me cry . Sometimes its happy tears, but other times it is out of frustration. It sort of cleans me up a litle, and make me ready to charge ahead.

  • yeah, they have on several occasions. The first time was when my son was 2 1/2 and he said "I hate you." (He heard it on Finding Nemo) And I've cried before when I've lost my temper and screamed at them... their faces make me feel like such a jerk!
    Hang in there... these days won't last forever.

  • Yes they do. At least once a week. LOL Three on the autism spectrum and one who is not. it's not always a "sad" cry though. sometimes they just blow my mind and I am sooo proud of their success.

  • my son always makes me cry! but not because of bad parentin but because sometimes they jus cry and make stuff so difficult for you to do the simple things. go to the store. wash dishes, take a shower, clean , stuff like that and it tends to get over whleming.
