DifferentKindofGirl, I have seen what these 'mothers' have done to their children making it known to them consciously or unconsciously, that they are not exactly what they wanted for their lives. I say again, "they did not ask to be born" and what SallyR mentioned "Made...Bed...Lie!!!! You mention, "if I continue reading", then I will find out how unhappy, they are. Well 'BIG SHOCK', what about the little ones, "how happy are they ?" As, I also mentioned before, You are an adult when you have children, so stop belly aching about it and GROW UP & DEAL WITH THE SITUATION!!!!!
