  1. Nope, thank goodness! I’ve said it time and again, I love my kid to bits but some times he drives me up the wall so much that I wanna strangle him. I understand the feeling-ashamed bit, but especially for us single parents it’s important to realize and accept that yes, your child’s rearing is responsible for your life condition discomfort but not the child itself. It’s OK to hate not being able to go out anymore, but that doesn’t mean you hate your kid for it. You just hate “it”.
