One of the worst things about being a parent is dealing with your children's hurt feelings when they are lied to or mistreated in life. My kids are in college but whether they were overlooked by a classmate or friend as a 5 year old or as young adults they find that someone has lied to them and played them for a fool. I know it is a growing lesson in life and my job is to help them learn how to handle these situations and I do, but I swear as their mother what I really want to do is track down the person who hurt my kid and beat them to a bloody pulp! Not hunting them down and being the better person is one of the hardest things as a parent that I do.
