I feel some parents do hate their children.....I mean, look at some of the abuse that goes on. I think a lot of children/teenagers use the word 'hate' far to lightly. Likewise, for some cases it is sadly true. Parents can be controlling, hateful bastards. Or they can be loving, kind and intelligent. All in all they are often just people, that make mistakes (and have to much power that sometimes goes to the head). Some however, are utterly cruel and do not deserve children.
I also do feel a lot of parents expect children to be to much, or take on to much, parents that moan about the child etc, I mean for goodness sake, if you willingly had sex with each other and had a child, hard luck if it's difficult for you.
But overall, I agree, 'most' parents do not hate their kids, just some. Likewise I feel not that many actually 'love' their children, just like them.
Oh really? So my father beating the shit out of me whenever I tried to talk to him is love? Yep, totally makes sense...
Tell that to the bruises on my body.
