I'm sure you'll understand one day, not that every mother wants to use violence, but how stressful having a child can be. Maybe your mother went through post natal depression but wasn't diagnosed, it happens. Just let it slide, I'm sure she's happy now. She might not want to remember the feelings she had. :)

Obviously she was just venting her frustrations in her PERSONAL diary. Having a child can be very stressful and the lack of sleep that accompanies can lead to varying instances of psychosis. The fact that she didn't act on those thoughts means that there is nothing you need to worry about, especially if the only indication of these thoughts were left in writing and not on your physical/emotional well-being.

I agree with 21, Don't take it personally. When my mum was pregnant with me she got incredibly sick and fainted loads, but the other day she told me I was her favourite mistake. Not sure if that's a compliment or not, but I'm flattered nevertheless.

I'm not sure how old OP is but there is something called postpartum depression. Many women felt that way but didn't know what it was. It's the women who did anything about their feelings who were considered crazy. Most of the time it's a hormonal imbalance and will go away with meds or time. I'm sure her's went away...you would have known it otherwise.

If you're a mother you would understand. Some moms feel very stressed out and might say things like this but would never actually do it. Their love for their child is immense but the frustration of maybe having a baby who won't stop crying can get to them. The fact the OP is writing this means OP is alive and well and I'm sure the mother wouldn't attempt this anytime soon.

Nope, this site takes its humour very seriously. No more unauthorized jokes, you hear? Now go and write a post explaining why OPs feelings and frustrations are normal, nobody else seems to be aware.

It's actually considered normal for first time moms. It's called Postpartum depression & the different stages of psychosis that accompany it. Google might be able to enlighten you a bit.

That's what I thought, I've got two little girls, they're still babies, the older has 2 years and i thought sometimes about gaging her and put her in a wardrobe..sssso stressing. Obviously I wouldn't but those thoughts are there.

Postpartum Depression is no joke. For the first three months of my niece's life, my family had to keep her away from my sister because of things she would say. She never did anything but we felt like at 17 she could snap. But after she healed and relaxed she was fine. She's the best mom ever now.

I think your sister should have been admitted to a hospital. I'm not trying to be offensive but it sound like your sister really crossed the line over annoyance and struggling, into damn near psychosis if your family had to isolate the baby from her. I'm glad your sister got better though

Ah don’t worry, loads of parents feel like that. My sister said she wanted to throw her first baby through the window. It was just that she was exhausted as the baby was constantly crying night and days due to stomach pain. She never meant it and she probably is the greatest mother I know and her 3 kids adore her.
