I've always had this thing about judging other parents. Yell at your kid? Well at least you're communicating. Spank? Well, better you than some prison cell mate someday. What WOULD get to me would be cold indifference to a kid. Maybe because I once read shrinks thought it caused schizophrenia. But I think because indifference is the true opposite of love. Hate isn't the opposite, def not hate, because there are times I can totally relate to hate around here. So when I find myself lately regarding my adorable 4 year old with indifference I get downright scared, guilty and thinking HTH do I explain this in family therapy one day. But it's not indifference because I don't absolutely love her. I truly do with all my heart, soul, wallet, freedom, material posessions and pets. And if it really were cold indifference I wouldn't feel so dang bad about it, right? So Ky, go to sleep easy for once, let me and your dad have five minutes alone, entertain yourself for maybe 1/2 an hour tomorrow and I promise to yell, spank, threaten, and actively love you without a sign of that defeated look you've been seeing so much of lately !
