As a parent, you’re socially expected to adore your own flesh and blood. In fact, it is not even expected as it is so inherently natural that you should love your children that few people ever consider an alternative.

The all-consuming bond that a parent shares with their child is supposedly unbreakable. But, what happens when there was no bond there in the first place? What happens if you do not share a connection with your creation? Is that even possible?

Well, yes. According to these parents, despising your own child is as natural as loving them. The only difference between the two states is the fact that you cannot openly express your hatred for your own child and have it welcomed and applauded quite like you can when you confess your love for them.

Desperate to declare their true feelings, these parents all took to the internet to reveal how they actually feel about their children. It will surprise you to learn that some parents really are sickened by their own offspring. Their confessions are quite disturbing…

This mom has had enough

This exhausted mother echoes the feelings of practically every other mother in the world. Children are tiring creatures, who demand every ounce of your complete and utter devotion. It can often feel like you’re alone, but the truth is that you’re not. This mother will soon realize that children are a short term pain for a long term gain!

Which is more than can be said for this next mom…

A bad workman always blames his tools

Blaming your children is the oldest, least inventive, trick in the book and is often completely unfair. This mother provides a prime example of how not to pass the blame. That is, unless her children physically stuffed fatty foods into her protesting mouth and literally clawed her hair out from its scalp.
