I'm a terrible mother

I hate my kids. They are 8, 5, 2, and 1 month. I just want to run away. I cant take raising them anymore. They don't listen, they are disrespectful, and they are ungrateful. I guess I am just a shitty mother. I thought I would do a better job at raising them but I guess I am only good at raising infants and even now I am getting bad at that. I have gotten to the point I just don't want to pick up my one month old anymore. Like I said, I'm a terrible mother.

PPD. Ask your doctor about it. Sounds like you are frustrated and overwhelmed. I hope it passes soon

You just described all kids.  That is the nature of being kids.  You sound overwhelmed, that doesn't make you a bad mother, it makes you human.

But get some help, how you feel isn't healthy for anyone involved.

 I am already on antidepressants. I want to talk with a therapist but cant afford it right now.

Any insurance? Most insurance covers. Have you been on your current antidepressant for a while? Maybe it is time for a change or add an anti anxiety as needed.

Please seek help. This is unfair to the children and yourself. Prayers. :)

Being a mother of six, I agree with you. But if she has PPF this comment won't help.

I can't imagine this just started. Why did you have another kid?
