I have to clear something up. I am not a child hater. I am a mother who loves her children with all her heart and soul. That's why when they do something incredibly stupid or act in a way that completely bewilders you...sometimes we vent. Venting is an excellent way to purge the soul and love does not mean never feeling anger. Love means getting past the anger and letting forgiveness take over. At the same time, the forgivee has to suffer the consequences of their actions if they are ever to learn a lesson. That's the hardest part.
