One of the complicated things in my life and my past is I know what tough love is. I know there are times when my own children need it. It is really hurtful to receive and give. Its hard being a parent when all your trying to do is love... sometimes it has to be tough.
I had to be tough with one of the kids today and I am not very happy about it but hopefully it will make a positive outcome. My "adopted" mom used to post the Mean Mommy Poem on the fridge to remind me. Boy am I thankful I know now what I didn't then because of her.
I just wish they would understand like I understand now that it's okay
