Motherhood is…”It hurts you more than it hurts them.”

I guarantee in your motherhood journey a friend is going to say to you, “It hurts you more than it hurts them.”

When it comes to discipline it hurts mom hearts A LOT. I feel guilty, I question myself and what I’m doing, I feel sad for my kids…

And my kids? They just get mad at me and frustrated. Well let me tell ya mad and frustrated are a lot easier emotions to feel than guilt, self-doubt and sadness.

And just when I think I’ve emotionally damaged my kids with a punishment they turn around and repeat the behavior. Yup, pretty sure the punishment hurt me more than my kids.

The truth is, my boys know that I love them. And I’m just doing my best not to raise little assholes.
