Yeah that site is really sad, but I just can't feel sorry for those who begin with "I have four children . . ." ''WTF!??????????????!!!!!! Didn't you learn that it sucked after the first? Why was adding 3 more a good idea? They must be just plain stupid!
Also, did you notice all the bitching about living in a "village-less society?" There are 7 billion people on earth, so we are done with helping you breeders raise your kids. God knows that would only encourage you to have more!

Unnecessary quoting uses up bandwidth. Please refer to the quoting announcement.
There's a godzillion articles about how women become members of this "sisterhood" when they become parents. How they're now in this "Cirlce of Moms" that offers support and friendship, etc., to other members of their sisterhood.
Funny how that old "Circle of Moms" disappears super fast when any of their "circle" needs money or any type of real help outside bitchy mothering advice and critiques.
I actually really appreciate that page. I went there to show my support. The person running the page said:
"...This is not a page for parents that hate their children, but for those that really hate being a parent or are just a little surprised at how different parenting was then they expected. We want them to have a release to help them cope with their disappointments and maybe give them hope.
I have seen plenty of women and men who desperately love their children but feel swamped because they may have very little support and no one they can talk to. That is what we provide here, a realistic look at parenthood. Some people are cut out for it, others aren't. Hopefully we can give some insight to help people weigh the challenges of becoming completely responsible for someone else.
If we can reach anyone so they can feel more confident about becoming a parent or choosing not to then I would say it's well worth the effort."
I have a lot of respect for that.

I have what I hope will be interpreted as the innocent question that I intend it to be:
Why do some of the mothers say "I love my child but I hate being a mom"? I have a hard time discerning the difference...I'm trying to reconcile it by analogizing it with "I love my husband but I hate being a wife."
I hope not to be chided for misunderstanding.
My being child free by choice and design after many years of purposely avoiding pregnancy, I find it hard to sympathize with the mothers of multiple children. I know first-hand the difficulties of raising children (stepchildren) but at the end of the day if I decide I've had enough, I know I can stop doing anything motherly. That a woman would purposely conclude that after having one child who drives her to insanity that she should add more children to her brood sounds like masochism.

I think it's great that someone started a page like that. There are people who clearly hate being parents, and despite whatever reasons led them to parenthood, they still deserve to be able to vent their frustrations.
