As parents, I’m sure we all get upset at our children. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t lost their cool (or have gotten pretty close to losing their cool) with their kids. Because let’s face it: parenting is tough work! You try to go in one direction, and your kids go in another. You try to teach them the difference between wrong and right and find yourself repeating your words more often than you should. There’s a reason why being a parent is usually considered one of the toughest jobs in the world, but that doesn’t mean we give up on it. Or that we abuse our children in the meantime over it, too.
That’s why so many people are appalled over this story of a woman’s girlfriend and what she did to a 3-year-old boy after he caught him drinking from a jug of milk. My heart just hurts thinking about this poor, innocent and helpless boy!
Seriously, this is the reason why I don’t cry over spilled milk. It’s not worth it, friends. Ever.
