My son just told me that most days he feels that I don't love him. I pretty much feel like the absolute worst mother in the world. How can someone I love sooo much infuriate me so? HOw will I forgive myself for being the one who has made him feel unloved when I should be the one who shows him love unconditionally? How do you shake that when you grew up in a home where you felt love was conditional? I feel so out of touch with gentle discipline although I strive to be there. I probably belittle him without even realizing it. I feel so out of touch. I feel so reactionary. I feel so at a loss.
