  • I think it might be natural? When we have our own children we are conditioned to love each one differently, and having them from birth can make the child from hell lovable?

    However when it comes to other peoples' children, I think I do judge... and there is less I am willing to put up with because "I don't have to"

  • Nah, it's just being honest with yourself about your feelings. Now, if you make the kids that aren't your favorites feel bad, that's unkind.

  • I cant stand a lot of kids that are not mine. The step kids I think if they dont live with you they make it a point to annoy you when they are at your house because they want to get a rise out of you.

  • I think its pretty normal, I know a few kids I really can't stand (some of which are neices or nephews), I love them but too much time around them drives me nuts.
