Why does my 5 year old hate me?

I'm writing this post as tears a re falling like waterfalls from my eyes...

What am I doing wrong?

Why does my 5 year old boy hate me?

does he hate me?

Or is it just his favourite thing to say to me at the moment?

Am I a bad parent?

Am I spoiling him or not giving him enough attention?

Am I punishing him enough when he is bad behaved?

Am I not punishing him enough when he's smacking me and banging his door down?

Should I be giving him a smack?

Or is smacking just showing him that its ok to smack?


My brain hurts but most of all my heart hurts.

My 5 year old boy is having major meltdowns ALOT this summer.....2/3 times a day or just being  naughty...every day...all day. It usually ends with him kicking, screaming and telling me he hates me.

What am I doing wrong?

Today I have reached a height of emotion, I slammed his door shut sat on the top step of the stairs and the tears fell, my heart broke, a gush of love and heart break just wouldn't stop flowing from my eyes!

It was all over baking cookies! Yes fucking cookies!!!

How do I nip this in the bud? How do I help him? How do I stop this behaviour?

I have a lot of questions to answer and I don't know if I can face them! So today the tears are falling and I'm hoping we can find a way out of this!

  1. Our kids really test us at times, don't they? It's so hard to know what makes them tick - mine is only two so I don't have any advice for a 5-year-old, but most everything is just a phase, right? #fortheloveofBLOG

    1. I really hope so! People often think its the babies that are hard work, they have nothing on a 5 year old!

  2. It might be hard at the moment, but I am sure things will calm down. You are not doing anything wrong, try and give yourself a break x

  3. gosh they totally test us dont they! my 6 year old is doing the same! #fortheloveofBLOG thanks for linking up xx
